    I have a pair or summer (textile) riding pants that are a bit too short so I'd like to get them lengthened.
    Anybody knows somebody that do that kind of work?

    Jax Outdoor used to have business cards for Blue Sky or Blue Mtn sewing. Not sure if it's still around and no personal experience

    I've used The Alteration Shop for normal clothes alterations but I did ask one time if they could handle heavy textile motorcycle clothes and they said yes, might give them a shout.

    Gorilla tape on the bottom is what I do.

    I used to go to "the reluctant seamstress" to get my goretex ski gear fixed. Not sure if she's still in business though.

    I stopped by REI to ask them which place they recommended for that sort of work.
    They have a folder with all kind of referrals and gave me a card for http://www.thesewingroomfc.com/
    They do zipper and leather repairs, so Cordura like fabrick should be a no brainer for them.
