I've lived in CO for 25 years but this is the first time I get up there. As most national parks, it turns into a zoo of slow moving cars looking for a place to park.

Technical seamstress in Ft. Collins?

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?
