Smile Hand sewing.

Is there a kind lady or two, around town, that would be willing to help me figure out a few small ish projects please ? I am useless at working out what I need. I am used to crafts where you just do it :-) Out of my comfort zone :-)

If you haven't sorted it by next week when Maureen comes out (she is good at that sort of thing) we could look at it together and see what we can do between us.

This is a bit off topic, but does anyone have a recommendation for a tailor for simple clothes alterations please? The lady above the market left a few years back.

Jon she still works. Both Kath and I have had trousers altered recently. She now works from home and it is not easy to find so I will show you where next time we meet up. She has increased her price slightly it is now €3.50 to shorten a pair of trousers after a personal fitting.

Thanks John

In my case I suspect I will need a price to let trousers out at the waist

The fabric shop beside the ice cream parlour on C/ CERVANTES is bound to recommend a "modista" or "sastre" for any tailoring needs.

Thanks Alice. When you have posted 3 times, you can send PM"s. Could you please send me her details? Alternatively if she is OK with her details being posted here, you could perhaps post them?

Thanks for the help.... And WELCOME to the forum
Jon
