Tailoring and Alterations


Perfectly tailored garments make a world of difference in how you look and feel in your clothes.

That’s why we have 2 expert tailors at our Beaver Ave location in downtown State College.  They specialize in suit tailoring, wedding dress alterations, pattern making, military patches, hems, and any other small or large repairs you may have. 

Our alterations department has decades of combined experience.

Area Rug Cleaning

Our area rug cleaning service is the best in State College.  Rugs are meticulously inspected and cleaned to remove all ground-in dirt and surface stains.  From pet dander to winter salt and mud, most area rugs need more than just vacuumed to be truly clean.  Plus we offer a guaranteed odor removal service.  Your rug will come back looking, and smelling, like new!

Comforter, Bedding and Draperies

We clean:

  • Comforters
  • Feather Beds
  • Duvets
  • Curtains
  • Drapes
  • Jabots
  • Sleeping Bags

We even offer a service that will take down and re-hang your curtains in your home.  We have years of working in homes and offices in State College, Lewistown, Bellefonte and the surrounding areas.

You should wash your comforters 4 times a year to keep dust, dander, and mites at bay. Your comforters and bedding items will even come back in a convenient and reusable StorAway Comforter Bag!

Leathers, furs, hats, shoes and more!

We take pride in tackling hard to clean fabrics like leather and suede jackets, skirts and letterman jackets.  If cleaned improperly, these will dry out and become inflexible.  Proper cleaning of these items is essential.

With furs, it’s vital to clean and store them in a humidity and temperature-controlled environment.  If not properly cleaned and stored, they can deteriorate which leaves them unwearable.  We offer a courier service as well as a seasonal storage option.

We understand the investment you put into specialty items and accessories.  They are cleaned, finished, and restored so that you can use them for several seasons. Specialty items are our specialty.

"I brought my wedding dress here for alterations. The lady was so friendly and helpful, and I was immensely pleased with how the dress turned out. It was tough trying to find someone I trusted with it enough, but this is now my go-to place for alterations."
