Tailoring & Specialty

Yes We Can!

We can handle almost any of your garment care needs with our extensive service list. 
From rugs to shoes to tailoring we can help!

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.

Customer Testimonials

My seamstress, SunChee, truly tailored garments (7 of them) to my dimensions precisely. I am difficult to fit. To zip up a pair of pants and feel a garment precisely hewn to you is indescribable. More than that is worth a mention here. The dressing room and fit platform are generous with good air circulation. The professional elan SunChee demonstrated was so welcoming, it transformed “a fitting” to a celebratory occasion.
Truly Tailored
Sent my favorite hiking jacket in for dry cleaning & for them to replace a button. Upon return the jacket looked way better than when I purchased it new. They went as far as to replace all the buttons so they all would match. WOW, what service! Highly recommend Balfurd’s.
The alterations that Lisa made on the two tops I brought her are exactly what I was hoping for. I moved to State College over a year ago from Seattle, and have been shopping for a tailor ever since. She is the fourth one in town that I tried, and I've already made an appointment to go see her again. I highly recommend her.
Highly Recommend
Always take in shirts for washing, pressing with light starch and have them placed on hangers. Balfurd always does a superb job. Shirts are returned in excellent condition and in a timely manner. All in all, they do a fantastic job. We are always well pleased with their work!
Fantastic Job
