Does she only work on leather or does she also work on textile? I have an Alpinestars textile riding jacket I went down on months ago and it's kind of just laying in my closet never to be touched again. A couple holes on the left arm side.

I can definitely take a look at the damage. Most is repairable and I like the challenging repair jobs.

Yes, I can work on anything pretty much. I have the industrial machines here.

Slyder shortened my sleeves. This is a lot of work cause she had to move zippers too. Excellent results. No more carpel tunnel after 15 minutes on the track. Cool lady / racer. Don't even consider anyone else if you are in Houston, period. She comes from a family of leatherworkers / seamstresses / tailors. She will even pick up / deliver them to many trackday and CMRA events, saving you a drive.
