Sandra Spencer’s love for sewing and fashion are in her genes. Her Mother sewed for her 9 children and her home. While attending high school in West Virginia, Sandra’s home economics teacher helped further her hone her skills with needle and thread.

In 1995, after working as a banker for 16 years. Sandra entered the alteration business by working at a premier Knoxville bridal salon. After 5 years of intense scheduling and many happy customers, she left to work as an office manager for a retirement investment firm. When their Knoxville office closed, she reentered the bridal industry doing alterations and found her passion.

Sandra worked at Wedding Wonderland in Knoxville for 4 years, the previous owner, Martha Carrington suggested she take the alterations from her business and start her own – thus Sandra G’s Alterations was born.

Since 2004, Sandra has strived to make Sandra G’s ,“the place to go” for specialized and personal fits for each client.
