    I have a Mooradian bag thats in need of some stitching- fix some zippers and re-sew a couple straps. Where should I take it to get this done? I'm in NYC - if anyone around here has done this before let me know where you went. Thanks
  2. The best place I've found to have this kind of work done is a shoemaker's shop. I live in a town considerably smaller than NYC, but local shoe repair shop always does a great job of stitching and reinforcing gig bags when needed.

    Won't help you in NYC, but since I live near Boston I went to the factory.

    I was shocked when they did the zipper repair for FREE...plus touched up a couple of seams they thought needed it.

    Thumbs up for their customer service!!!

    Luggage repair shops are great if you have one nearby. They're familair with all that special hardware, large zippers and such.

    Thanks all! A luggage repair shop sounds like the best bet for me.
