I have some simple gear repairs which might require a sewing machine and professional sewing skills. (patching a gaiter, sewing a pack strap's padding cover back together, etc.) The repairs might require hand sewing, if Cordura doesn't go in a sewing machine.

I would like to get it done locally as these repairs are not the type which are complicated (or valuable) enough to ship my stuff off to Rainy Pass or some other faraway gear repair specialist. Likewise, these repairs go beyond using duct tape or seam grip, so that's not an option.

Anyone have any recommendations on tailors or cobblers who might have some experience with this? The only tailor I know nearby is one in New Paltz who hems ballgowns, which may or may not be relevant...
