Maria’s Tailor Shop opens on Ellsworth Road in Queen Creek

Maria Estevez is owner and operator of Maria’s Tailor Shop, 22632 S. Ellsworth Road in Queen Creek, which opened Sept. 14.

She helps residents of the greater Queen Creek area by providing professional, timely and affordable alterations services for their business, formal and casual clothes. She has been a professional seamstress and business owner for more than 20 years, according to a press release.

Mrs. Estevez enjoyed making her own clothes as a teenager and got into this line of business when she began working as a seamstress in her early 20s. Years later, along with being a wife and mother of three children, she opened an alterations business in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and operated it for more than 18 years. She sold it so she could move to Arizona with her husband, Virgil, in 2014.

She said her favorite part of operating an alterations business is that it allows her to use her skills and talents as an expert seamstress to help her customers look and feel better in their work, formal and casual clothes.
