If I did a job for acompany and have gotten the runaround regarding payment, what doI have to do to take it to small claims court?

My business did a job for a company ans was supposed to get paid that day; 12 days ago. One of the owners showed up and signed out work order. They asked if they could mail us a check. We never received a check. We tried contacting them the first week we did not receive the check, they would not answer our calls or email. She finally called us back and said the check had cleared her bank. We never received it to cash it. She admitted to sending it to the wrong address and only putting my first name in the check. She said she was looking into it. We waited another week and emailed her requesting that she send us a check that we felt for her that the check was cashed by someone else but we did not feel this was our error. she told us to take her to collections and not to contact her anymore. We are a very small business and have no idea which route to take. Can we take her to small claims court and how do we do that?
