You can mail your leathers to spyder letting them know what you want done, and they can have them back to ya pretty quickly.

Spyder is only 40 minutes north of the IL border and well worth the drive...

I was out there a few weeks ago and was very impressed.

how soon do you need them altered?
I might be in WI on 20th and can get them to Alexa somehow.

As said before, you can actually ship the leathers to Alexa.

Other than that, most dry cleaning places do alterations and shoe repair places do it as well.

I went to Spyder with my pants, had her measure me, and then she happily shipped them back to me after the alterations. If you know exactly what you want done, this works well (shipping back and forth).
