Nancy has written this nice note from Ireland. Is there anyone out there who can help her out with an answer?
where can I do a course in altrations in Meath or louth Ireland or can one work voluntary with an altrations person to get experence. thank you.
Nancy, I don't know of any classes. Hopefully someone who reads this blog will be able to help.
I am thinking about offering online alteration classes in the future. I need to see how much interest there is. If anyone wants to know more, could you drop me a line on the Contact Me page, or leave a comment below?
As for working on a volunteer basis, I'm sure most seamstresses/tailors would love the idea. You may get stuck doing some mundane tasks, like ripping out seams or something, but you can watch carefully and learn a lot. Eventually you will gain confidence and you can practice what you are learning on used clothing or old stuff from your closets.
Let us know if you are able to get this going. I'd love to hear about what you're learning!
Thanks so much.
