Sue Estes, owner of Sew-A-Lot Sewing and Alterations in Carbondale, works to hem a client’s jeans Friday in Carbondale.

Estes, who has been sewing for much of her life, has worked out of the Carbondale storefront for nearly six years.

“When I got sick back in March, my first thought was never about being able to walk again — it was whether or not I was ever going to be able to sew again,” she said.
