The Only Master Sewists in Boise

Professional enthusiasm and workmanship in an easy, pleasant and flexible atmosphere: We love what we do and you will love the experience.

Meet the owner of sewBoise, Erin Retelle. I began designing and sewing clothing for my dolls as a child, and then moved on to full-sized fashions after learning to use a sewing machine. I’ve been my friends’ go-to gal for custom costumes and outfits, alterations, and mending since my high school and college days.

After moving to Boise for a job in 2004, I picked up more advanced design and construction techniques from local instructors and mentors. I branched into pattern drafting, couture sewing techniques, corset-building, bridal work, and tailoring.
