Over 125 Years Experience

Formerly known as Quickstitch, based on Saddler Street in Durham, we relocated and rebranded as the Woven Workshop. The workshop is now located in Prince Bishops Place, Durham and is home to our dedicated seamstresses who have combined over 125+ years of experience in sewing and alterations. We also offer a range of other services including dry cleaning and service washes. Call in and speak to the team for more information, no appointments are necessary.


    Whether it's taking up a hem, altering your suit sleeve length or replacing a zip. It's all available in house.


    Got too much laundry? Our service washes can take a load off your hands and have it back to you washed, dried and folded.


    For those delicate garments that need a little extra care, our dry cleaning services have an express 2-3 day turnaround period.

Workshop FAQs

Do I need an appointment?

No, no appointment is necessary. Please visit us at your convenience.

How long will it take to complete my alterations?

This will depend on what work you require and how busy the workshop is at the time of your visit. The alterations team will give you an estimated day when your item(s) will be ready for collection.

Yes, we can offer alterations on most dresses. Please note, we are unable to alter garments that are heavily beaded due to the higher risk of damaging the garment.

If you are in need of a length alteration, please bring the shoes you will be wearing with the dress/trousers so they can be altered accurately.
