Seamstress Recommendations

Hello! I'm looking for a good seamstress in the area who can alter a bridesmaid dress (it requires more than just hemming). If anyone has any recommendations for someone they trust it would be much appreciated. Thanks!

  • I would second the recommendation of Fame Cleaners on Division. I've been going there for seven years, consistently having clothes altered in big and small ways, and the alterations are always spot on.

  • RaleighsMa Not fauxraged.

    +1 for Fame! Vivian is great.

    Hi Jessica -

    We used Bryan Morrison at Nest Construction - 312.451.6690 and had an excellent experience. Incredible attention to detail and craftsmanship. He does a variety of things but he would be my first call for almost any project.

    He did an incredible job on a roof deck, new door and frame, some custom woodwork, and a variety of smaller projects. This winter he we will have him back for some tile work and custom cabinetry. On top I felt like his prices were VERY fair. Its so hard to know what you are going to get but I am glad to pass him along.

    Anyway - good luck!

  • I highly recommend Design Invention, call Peter at 773-787-9776. The work he does is excellent, and his prices are reasonable and fair. He is also very responsive and honest; he would never do any work that didn't need to be done or cut corners.

    He has won a Super Service...

    He has won a Super Service Award on Angies list and had consistent A ratings from them as well. A close friend had a kitchen/bathroom remodel and central air conditioning installed by Peter and could not be more thrilled with the outcome and the entire process from start to finish.

    Even if you might already be considering someone else, you should give Peter a call and let him give you a quote as well.

SmallBar Division to Close in November, Owner to Sell Building and Bar

McFarland said that he has a buyer for SmallBar and the three-story building at 2049 W. Division St., which includes apartments above the bar, but declined to comment on the buyer. He did say the group that intends to take over the spot is Chicago based.

McFarland, 38, is the sole owner of SmallBar Division, which opened in September 2004, about a year and a half after SmallBar's first location, which is now owned by a former business partner of McFarland's, debuted in Logan Square at 2956 N. Albany Ave.

Another Medical Marijuana Permit for Wicker Park Sought

WICKER PARK — The owner of a proposed medical marijuana dispensary headed by three pharmacists is seeking a special use permit to operate out of a former wine shop about two blocks east of Wicker Park's main hub at Milwaukee, Damen and North avenues.

Professional Midwest Dispensary has applied for a special use permit to open at 1811 W. North Ave. in the former Cellar Rat wine shop, which closed earlier this year.

Marron is scheduled to meet with members of the Wicker Park Committee's preservation and development subcommittee (P&D) at the group's monthly meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Wicker Park Field House, 1425 N. Damen Ave.

The group did not meet with another company interested in selling marijuana in Wicker Park, Modern Medicine Dispensary at 1368 N. Milwaukee Ave., prior to that dispensary's special use permit being approved the city. There was "not enough of an outcry" to oppose the permit, Tamminga said.

This article has 2 other Chicago locations (Show)

Marron said she has close to 30 years of experience as a pharmacist and currently works for Comprehensive Pharmacy Services, which runs two pharmacies inside Mercy Hospital, 2525 S. Michigan Ave. 

In addition to Modern Medicine Dispensary, another dispensary, operated by IL Grown Medicine, also seeks a special use permit to operate at 1300-08 W. North Ave, in a 3,500-square-foot storefront across from Home Depot.

Forming a ceramicist co-op!

Hello, we are in the process of forming a co-op for ceramicists that need a space to throw and fire their work. The goal is to pool our resources together so that we can get a space where we can work. We can also use this space to have monthly gallery openings so that we can show our work to the neighborhood. We have three people interested so far, anyone on here interested?

Also, does anyone know of potential places where we could set up a kiln? It would have to be a place that we could vent, like somewhere that used to be equipped for a kitchen.

Thanks neighbors!
