Adel and Joan, the owners of Adel’s Sewing Room in Petersburg, Virginia are experienced in sewing all types of clothing and decor items. We can do custom sewing for you and alter or repair what you already own. We have the ability and machines to work with all types of materials from silks and cottons to heavy canvas and leather.


How often have you looked in your closet and seen clothes that don’t feel or look just right on you? Some still have the tags on them!

Bring them to us and we will work our magic on them and give you a wardrobe of beautiful wearable clothes.


Have you lost weight but don’t want the expense of buying new clothes? Or maybe you don’t want to get rid of old favorites?

Bring them to us and we’ll make them wearable again. We love to see the smile on your face when you feel good in your clothes.

We can help you update your style, make clothes that are patterned from favorites you own or from pictures you’ve brought to us. We can help you choose the styles that will flatter your shape and your personality.


Does your home or office need a make-over? We can help with that too. We can make or repair pillows, curtains, covers, table wear and even dog beds.

Or do you have an old quilt that needs repaired or an unfinished one that you found in the attic? No problem. It’s why our motto is:

“If it can be sewn, we can do it.”
