Haberman Fabrics maintains an extensive referral list so we can provide names of many talented sewing professionals. The list is free and available only in store, not by phone, mail, email, or fax. It is cross-referenced by specialty, from bridal and career wear to windows and upholstery. It is a list to treasure. We strongly believe that the more personal involvement you have in a project, the more meaningful it becomes.
If you are a talented, experienced sewing professional who would like to be referred by us, contact us to make an appointment with a store manager show samples of your specialties that you will bring in. We will not refer without seeing your work first. Garments must look at least as good as ready-made apparel, inside and outside. Provide close up, multi-view photos of large home décor pieces. When you make a contract with a client, be prepared to set dates in advance for fittings and delivery of the project. For furniture items, include arrangements for pick up and delivery. Provide a “ball-park” estimate for the project over the phone, and a firm price when you receive the materials for the garment; or for window treatments and furniture projects, when you visit for an estimate. Communicate carefully and clearly about all details of the project. Include in the contract that changes to the initial design may raise the finished cost.
In the unlikely event that we receive valid complaints from a referral, you will no longer be on our list.
