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.



Our goal is to be of service to the community of Cherokee, Iowa as well as the whole of northwest Iowa. But why stop there? In this age of technology, we are able to serve customers from across the country. We’ve had customers from as far away as New Jersey and California! We treat all our customers with kindness and respect with a good old fashion dose of professionalism along with a little bit of fun. We value you because without you we would not succeed and grow.


Nelson Sewing is located in the heart of beautiful northwest Iowa in Cherokee. We are a home-based operation with spaces set aside for specific service areas. This helps us keep our overhead costs down to give you the best value for the services we provide.


The beauty of operating a home-based business is the flexibility in our service days and hours. We meet all customers by appointment with a schedule that meets your needs. When we actually do the work is up to us. 🙂 However, you can be assured your project will be completed in a timely manner with quality always placed above speed.
