Quality & Service

We have been in business since 2006. What started out as a basic alterations and mending service has since expanded. While alterations and mending are still a large part of what we do here at Nelson Sewing & Crafts we have also gone on a journey to offer more to our customers and community.

Now you can enjoy the services of Nelson Sewing & Crafts, Hands of Faith Quilting, The Digital Stitch Studio, and Rethread Earth. What does that mean for you? It means we can be your one stop solution for all your sewing service needs. We offer alterations and mending, longarm quilting, custom embroidery, and handcrafted items for that special gift or home décor item.







We serve customers from all over the northwest Iowa area. However, we also have customers from far away as New Jersey and even California. We treat all our customers with kindness and respect and expect the same in return from our customers. That’s fair right?


At Nelson Sewing & Crafts we are a home based business with dedicated workspace for all our sewing services. Yes we have pets but we are clean freaks and pets have extremely limited access to our work areas. We are tobacco free workspace as well. We are located in the heart of northwest Iowa in Cherokee. A small friendly and welcoming community where it seems like you know everybody but you really don’t. 


The beauty of owning a home-based business is the flexibility we can offer to our customers. We meet with customers by appointment only.  We don’t have set hours when we actually do our work because we too like flexibility in our schedule. If we want to sew at nine o’clock at night we can. If we are early risers and want to beat the summer heat we can work at six in the morning if we want to. For most services, we like to have a two-week turnaround time. The more custom your project is the more lead time we prefer. This allows us to provide quality work over quick work.
