Alterations and Tailoring Specialists Since 1979 In Portland, Oregon





Experience Is Everything.

Hems In A Hurry is a family business that has thrived in Portland for 39 years, originally started by Susie Youngman who had a special interest in tailoring. She was one of the top tailors in Portland throughout the years. We continue to offer world class tailoring services at a fair price, with a speedy turnaround. 

Stop by our location in Portland today, and our master tailor, Lidiya, will be more than happy to do an on the spot fitting and a pant hem or two, while you wait if you are in a rush.

Over the years we have found that many of our customers are short on time, and have already marked their garments for hemming, or they don't drive a car. To make your lives a little easier, and contribute to a cleaner environment by reducing emissions, we now offer the "Just Ship It" service.  There is no need to come in! Simply, send us your pre-marked pant hems, dress shirts (sleeves), and dresses (hems). When finished, we will send them back to you!
