I enjoy reading Harikleia’s articles–the history and her personal connection. It is so cool that she weaves her family history into her writings. I love visiting her website and getting to know more about her creative background and the passion for her work. Her pieces are incredible! Very inspiring.

Who does a Type A perfectionist trust to do her alterations? I am she, and I only trust Harikleia. Plus, she is a super nice lady!

Pam Chiang

On hemming pants: Beautiful finish. Hope all your customers notice and appreciate. Hemming my pants is a paltry chore for you. I visited your website and appreciated all the elaborate works! Thank you for a job well done.

Linda Fraley

My mom saw one of the bags Harikleia made me and asked where I got it from. I told her that my wonderful neighbor made it. She does such good job!

Harikleia is absolutely amazing! She made a stunning cushion for a bench in my home. The workmanship is exquisite and much nicer than anything I could have ordered online. I live in Saint Augustine, FL, and plan to use her for many more sewing projects! She is the absolute best and can do anything!

Angela Acklin

I’ve worked with Harikleia for 15 years. She has created or saved a wedding dress, twice a mother of the groom dress and now a gown for my brother’s wedding. I can’t say enough praise of her works.  She is so pleasant and really cares about her customers.

Janice Murphy

Harikleia is the most industrious person I’ve ever met.

Liza Newsom

Harikleia sews truly beautiful bags, custom made for each individual. Every bag is an artistic handmade creation that fits your personal needs. Just to use and carry one of Harikleia’s bags is a true pleasure.

Ann Exum

Super nice and professional. She re-upholstered some cushions for me, and they came out fantastic and she helped me alter a top. Will definitely be going to her again for any of my sewing needs.

Marisa G.

Mrs. Sirmans is great to work with, and very professional. She has altered just about every dress shirt, and pants that I own. She really knows how to fit your clothing to your body for a professional custom look. Her prices are also very reasonable. She is the best!!! Thanks

Jeff Barfield

Harikleia from the Grecian Needle is awesome! She altered a cocktail dress of mine, and she did a fantastic job! She is very flexible with meeting times, does the work quickly, and does it for a very reasonable price! She is definitely who I will use for all of my altering needs. I would recommend her to anyone!

Megan May

Harikleia is the most awesome seamstress! She has made many items for me and my family. She even altered my dogs’ harnesses and they fit perfectly! Harikleia can do anything, just tell her what you want, and it’s done! The quality and professionalism of work is superior. We are so blessed to have her in our community!

Pamela Poirier

A VERY TALENTED person! She can do most anything and does a splendid job.

Patsi Peacock

I hate to be selfish, but you need to know this wonderful lady is amazing. She can do anything you need. She turns out the most amazing quality you could ever want. All I ask is to leave room for me.

Janice Murphy

I have to agree with Janice Murphy. Harikleia does amazing work. She has created numerous items for me over the years and I am pleased to see she is creating a business out of her passion for sewing. Please save room for me too!

Harikleia’s work is meticulous, priced fairly and she is a very honest and nice person.

Pat Santas

Harikleia is an excellent seamstress and a true professional. I have found her work to be high-quality, beautiful, and with reasonable prices and turnaround times. I would trust her to alter any of my favorite garments!

Jeanna Allums

I love Harikleia’s creations! Anytime I need something created, not only does she do it… but she does an awesome job! Wouldn’t go to anyone else!

Elizabeth Bright

I could never have anyone do handy work for me but you. You are the best at what you do. Your talents are out of this world. From a small thing as a hem to zipper replacements and makeup bags to shopping/travel totes you can do it all. Thank you.

Deborah Antonoff

Harikleia Sirmans, from the Grecian Needle, is an amazing seamstress! She created custom designs for everyone on my Christmas list. I look forward to sharing them with my friends and family!
