Meet Dorita

Garden View Creations Location

Dorita Grantz

I have a private studio located in Evansville, Indiana, less than one mile from Eastland Mall. As a Professional Seamstress for over 10 years, sewing over 30 years, I have great pleasure in creating, repairing, enhancing and restoring all projects that come my way! My purpose and desire is to deliver quality workmanship in a timely manner to every customer.

I keep a very busy schedule, so it is necessary for me to see my clients by appointment. I welcome your ideas, and hope to apply my skills and talents toward all your future projects. 

I look forward to meeting you soon!




"Folks if anyone is in need of any kind of alterations I highly recommend Dorita…she completely remade a denim jacket because we couldn’t find one small enough for our granddaughter, and it was a fantastic job, she has done numerous alterations for me and my husband and I have been completely satisfied…she is such a wonderful lady."

"I admire Dorita and her attention to details, with all her creative sewing pieces. She has made several pillows for me, totes, and storage items. But the dearest 2 pieces were quilts. The first one was made for my Mother, out of my father’s ties. You can imagine the warmth that gave her. The next quilt was made for my sister, out of my Mother’s handkerchiefs. It also was such a wonderful memory for my sister. Dorita is compassionate about her work, in whatever area she is doing it. There isn’t a person I would trust more with my sewing needs."

"I have had the privilege of knowing and working with Dorita for close to 15 years.  She has done so many wonderful things for me... from simple repairs to custom patio chair cushions, specialty pillows, custom pads for cedar chests and much more. Most memorably, I went to her with a bag of my Dad's clothes who had recently passed and asked her if we could create something special for his family to remember him.  She did not disappoint! She made purses, make up bags, earrings and pillows - all constructed with so much love and detail. They  best gifts received at our first Christmas without my Dad.  Her professionalism along with her kindness and ability keeps me coming back for any and all things that need repaired or created!  She is absolutely the BEST and I would highly recommend her for any and all alterations and more!"

"I highly recommended Garden View Creations.  I reached out about altering some clothes after a recent weight loss.  Dorita exceeded my expectations.  She was able to alter some of my favorites that I didn’t think I would be able to wear again! She did a fantastic job and the turnaround time was less than expected. I will definitely refer family and friends!"
