Quick Question While I Still Have You

And by the way, the guy’s book is phenomenal.

Question from my friend author John Slemp:

Hello John!

Just read about the change in leadership at Ivy Style, and try to send as many people your way as I can.

I have a question that perhaps you can help with.

I’ve a very heavy sweater that I purchased in Germany in the mid-80’s, that was originally knit in England.

Unfortunately the cuffs and elbows are showing significant signs of wear, and I was wondering if you know of a reputable firm that might be able to repair it?

I can send photos if that’s of any help.

By the way, my recent newsletter is attached that went out to a lot of people this week.

In advance, Thanks!

  1. I’ve taken two sweaters — two heavily (HEAVILY! I’m talkin’ Mothra made multiple meals out of ’em) damaged sweaters — to Elise at Village Mending in Portland, OR. She is an absolute professional and made my sweaters look as good as new. She does outstanding work.
    *She accepts shipments, too.

  2. Alex’s re-weaving Los Angeles. 323-934-2106 5506 W. Pico Blvd.
    Los Angeles, CA 90019
    Open M-F 8AM to 5PM.
    They even re-wove a mid-calf length cashmere top coat from Brooks Bros that was attacked by moths. You cannot even begin to detect where many multiple holes were. Good luck.

  3. Maybe the comments here should be on some new resource page on this site. There are so many menders and tailors and knitwear experts who deserve any business I-S might refer to them. Certain other Ivy-adjacent sites out there have pages of founder- and community-approved resources like that. Maybe a little project for the new Exec.?
