    Carissa with the Gilded Thimble is OUTSTANDING! I cannot say enough positive things about her & they way she does business. She answered all of my texts within no time. She accommodates her clients and makes you feel at home during the “sew while you wait” session. Her work is AMAZING! My dress is everything I could’ve dreamed of. She is definitely in the right business! If you want someone to take care of you & ensure you feel confident on your big day, take it to her! I would’ve never wanted to take my dress to anyone else!!!! So excited for my big day and how beautiful my gown is!!!!

    If I could give more than 5 stars, I would! Everything about my experience with the Gilded Thimble was wonderful. Carissa is a delightful person to work with and she put both my mom and myself at ease throughout the entire alteration process (which can be difficult, when you can see your dress being cut apart throughout the process). Her studio is beautiful and comfortable. We could't believe how quickly our Sew While Wait session flew by and we enjoyed every second. Also, of course, the dress was absolutely PERFECT! This woman is a magician and so incredibly talented! If you want your alteration process to be fun and enjoyable, choose the Gilded Thimble! You will not be disappointed!

    She did a great job with my dress alterations! She did them quickly and was very nice to work with. She was also flexible with the scheduling of my dress fitting which was nice to have since I am a teacher. I would highly recommend to anyone needing wedding dress alterations!
