For years I used to take my ripped up ski pants and packs in need of alterations to Northwest Garment & Gear Repair that was located in the back of a dance supply store on Fremont Ave....the shop went out of business a year or two ago and I haven't found a good replacement yet. I know that Rainy Pass repair is out there, but last time I checked their prices were a bit steep compared to what I used to get done at NW Garment. Anyone got a recommendation of a shop that can do things like patch a pair of ski pants or bar-tack some ski slots on a new backpack? thanks.
Give this guy a jingle -- I can't vouch for anything except that he seems like a nice guy and he's got the equipment to do repair. I think he's working on getting his business up and running and takes repair work to fill the gaps? Not really sure.
I've been using a drycleaning shop that is immediately next door to Panda Labs by the seattle Center. I had quotes of like $60 to $90 to get a zipper replaced on a pile jacket. It cost me $30. I've had a number of clothing items repaired there. They don't do heavier pack repair.
