I'd try an upholstery shop. They have heavy duty sewing machines you need for wetsuits. Had a friend, now passed, who was an upholsterer, helped me several times customize mine.

I'm pretty sure what spindrift was saying ...
... is that they can do all that, take care of all your needs (almost like being in California)


Repairs made, from a previous post

Former oneill designers and fabricators available for stitching and zippers.
I do the glue, tape, seam repairs, leak and tear repairs. Wetsuit specific sewing machines. Over forty years experience. Reasonable prices, local work, no shipping cost and turnaround time.

Btw: thanks sunrise for your help.
We tried to find someone years ago to repair a bunch of wetsuits for diveshops and big box surf rental outfits.
We found one company in laguna beach who sneered at us a an east coast customer. I would have thought someone east coast like henderson or wetsuit wearhouse would be on it.
Nada. Zilch. Even the dive shops have nobody. I'm trying to start this here in brevard. I take maybe 10-15% over my cost on major repairs. Let us know if we can be of service.
Also, great prices on lightly used cold water suits
