From Lima to Lyons, with a needle
Peruvian immigrant's sewing skills help her make a new life

by Erica Meltzer Camera Staff Writer



In the course of my work, helping clients choose wall color, surface treatments and accessories to update and refresh their spaces, we often come upon a beloved, but out-of-date piece of furniture. I’ve called in the help of Elvia Villalobos of Sew On The Go, and her daughter Lesly, with transformative results (slip cover in this case) that delight the clients, putting the ‘cherry on the cake’.

Elvia has also created a beautiful valance, which put the right finishing touch in a client’s living room. Elivia and Lesly are wonderful to work with, professional; attentive to clients’ needs and detail oriented. They are my ‘go to’ fabric people!

Sew On The Go has produced some amazing products for me. I had very high expectations, and the work and customer service exceeded those expectations. They are very cooperative, creative, and friendly. I highly recommend this company!

Hi, Leslie and Elvia,
I didn't get to see you when you dropped off the rocker, so you didn't get to see how pleased i am with the work. Both chairs look terrific. The repair on the rocker was well done. And thanks for painting the runners! If you need a reference, please feel welcome to use my name!

Elvia is a wonderful person and incredible tailor. She has a creative spirit as well and that came in very handy when fitting several dresses she altered for me. She doesn't just sew hems...she helped me create the vision I had in mind for my wedding dress by making suggestions to achieve the look I wanted.

Unlike all other tailors (seamstresses) I've worked with, she will come to your home or business. Makes alterations incredibly convenient.  What a great way to save time!

Her workmanship is impeccable, as is her attention to detail. I couldn't give a higher recommendation. You will not be disappointed!
