“I highly recommend Just Sew. Pat has made several items for me over the years - from slipcovers to monogramming and embroidery. The quality of her work is excellent! Her rates are reasonable for the hours of work and the care she puts into each project.”

"Pat has slip-covered two couches and two club chairs for us that fit like gloves. From start to finish, working with her is easy and enjoyable. She offers a wide selection of fabric samples and has finished each project to perfection ahead of time. Beyond these major undertakings, she has monogrammed pillow cases for anniversary and wedding gifts, sewn fun fabric coil bowls and coasters, created holiday runners and purse organizers that I have given to friends and family. She is always up for a creative challenge and never seems daunted by any problem she might encounter.”

-Marcy Nassikas

“I have four sofas and Pat has created beautiful slipcovers for all of them. They look upholstered. Not to mention my closet; many of my clothes have been altered and now fit properly thanks to Pat's sewing. I recommend her most highly.”

“I have used Just Sew for just about everything. Pat has done personal work for me, as well as sewing for my own business, Kate Martin Design. Pat is talented at what she does, and has a great eye for color and design. The quality of her work has always surpassed my expectations. She is creative and willing to work with you from the design stage through to the end. She is patient, flexible and listens to your needs, making sure that her clients are happy when they leave her studio. I can't say enough good things about Pat and her business, Just Sew. I really feel like I have discovered a wonderful resource and treasure.”

-Kate Martin

“Pat is a wonderful seamstress who holds a seemingly unending amount of knowledge and experience sewing slip and cushion covers and any other sewing project you need completed. I consulted with her to replace my patio furniture cushions. She came over and sat down with me and we looked through fabrics and discussed many options. My new cushions are beautiful and well-constructed. I truly enjoyed working with Pat and I highly recommend her.”

-Cindy Wemette

"Pat has done numerous alterations for my daughter and I. Not all of them have been straightforward and she has always been able to figure out a solution that not only works, but looks great too. I highly recommend Pat for any job large or small; you won't be disappointed!"

-Sandra Bonomo

"I have used Pat for both personal and business sewing needs for over 5 years. The work is always excellent and Pat is great to work with."

-Nancy Jewett

“I am very pleased with Pat's work because she is so easy to work with and the quality of her work is outstanding. Pat made a slipcover which is amazing because you don't know it's a cover, it looks like original fabric. She also made outdoor cushions, helping me to get the right fabric and design. Pat is currently making two new cushions for some armchairs as she does small jobs as well. Pat is the best!"

“Pat has helped us with many projects over the years. She is more than a seamstress, she is truly an artist! We won't go to anyone else!”

-Andrea Murray

“Pat did a great job with an unusual slipcover request. My 1980s dining room set looks fantastic and ready for the next round of family gatherings.”


Cornwall, Vermont

“We met Pat 4 years ago when we couldn't find coats or sleeves to fit our mini dachshund; Pat came to our rescue and even embroidered his name on a blanket. Since then we've enlisted her to make cushions, a slipcover, and window valances for different rooms in our house. Hands down she is unequivocally the best sewist. Look no further!"

-Pen Ploof and Julie Bushey

Middlebury, Vermont

“Pat's work is truly one of a kind. She recently made slip covers for my two most comfortable living room chairs. The slipcovers fit so perfectly that everyone asks me who reupholstered my chairs! There's no looseness to any of the fabric and the finish seams are done perfectly. I still have my comfy chairs and they look better than when I originally purchased them. Pat was also wonderful to work with. She gave me a realistic appraisal of her time frame and stayed in touch throughout the process. She gets 5++ stars from me for her work.”
