Dawn did excellent work on my favorite 30 year old sweater. She’s given it another 30 years for a good price and good turn around time. I couldn’t be happier.

In my commitment to (and love of) vintage, DIY sustainability, art and Stop Shopping Culture, I'm dedicated to repairing your cherished hand knits, crocheted and woven pieces. I specialize in darning holes found in your years-loved-beloved handmade socks, sweaters, hats, scarves, mittens, blankets and most other knit pieces.

Darning is about returning structure and life to a knit piece where it was starting to unravel, had a gaping, ragged hole or a run. Darning often looks like a squarish "patch", a beautiful scar showing how time has passed in a complementary color.

Based out of Lower Manhattan, NYC, drop by or send me your goods and I'll repair them by hand within 1-3 weeks. Contact me at dawn@dslookkin.com for rates and more details - serious inquiries only please. References available upon request.
