Since 1950, Texmain's laundry specialists have kept wardrobes in mint condition with methods designed for the unique properties of each fabric. They dry clean an array of garments and meticulously remove cake, rice, and other stains from delicate wedding gowns. For structural issues, tailors can replace missing buttons or mend rips.
A Focusrite Red 8 Dual Microphone Preamp. Pairs of AKG studio headphones. A Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier. Pro Tools 10 software on a Mac Pro desktop. An artist's playground designed and operated by artists, Prevail Music's recording studio is stocked with up-to-date, high-end equipment for all the stages of sound recording, composition, editing, and mixing. Staff also fill the studio with a plethora of instruments, ranging from Korg synthesizers and Fender guitars to a drum set, woodwinds and a djembe. With the aid of this gear, technicians help clients tweak their sound productions to increase marketability, and find avenues for professional networking other than posing as a statue in David Bowie's front yard.
Locally owned and operated since 1992, Sketchley Cleaners endeavours to enhance appearances and strengthen the fibres of customers throughout Kitchener and Waterloo. The specialists employ a progressive selection of laundering techniques ($2.50+) that include folding and starching shirts and hand-scrubbing collars and cuffs. Using gentle machine cycles and waterless solvents, staffers work to purify pants ($7.35+) and dresses ($12.10+); hand-pressing services pamper two-piece suits ($15.25+), eliminating wrinkles and evidence of lunch-hour snorkelling sessions. Depending on the services requested, clients pick up clothing items within 1–3 days of dropping them off. Sketchley’s King Street East location in Kitchener and Bridgeport Road and Weber Avenue locations in Waterloo also offer on-site tailoring, making it possible to finally stitch a favorite shirt-and-pant combo into a unitard.
