Here's an example of why starting a little clothes alteration business might help...

"Sometimes when things go wrong in our life, we need to regroup and make changes.  It could be moving to a new place because a relationship has gone bad, or maybe a job loss.  There are many reasons.  But one constant in all of this is that if you have some sewing skills, you can turn those skills into earning an income."

"Some people do this to earn some spare cash and others have started up shops and grown from there."  My story is one that may inspire you.

When we had the "recession we had to have" back in the early 1990's, my world fell apart.  I am sure there are many people who can tell of the same thing.  I am not going to go into details, because they are not relevant.  Suffice to say that when politicians make decisions like hiking up interest rates to slow down an economy, they cause suffering.

I eventually left the town I had been in for over 20 years in a car that was about to be repossessed and a son who was 15 years old.  No money and no idea what I would do.  (My brother lent me some money)  I headed to Sydney.  All I had was a small Elna sewing machine in the back seat and our luggage.

I approached a center manager in a small shopping center.  There was a vacant shop with no walls, and I thought perhaps he would rent me the shop.  When I sat down and told him my name and what I wanted to do, he just smiled. Then I fell apart.  I cried for about ten minutes.  Poor guy.  In the end after a cup of coffee, I settled down and told him my plans.

To my absolute surprise he said "OK.  I will close in the shop with glass (my request) and put in a roller door.  You have to do the rest.  And you can pay me back when you can."

I started with my little Elna Sewing machine and my sister in laws very very old over locker.

That shop became very busy very quickly and was one  of the most successful shops I had.

The book Clothing Alteration Secrets Revealed came about because I had started manuals to teach my staff the way I wanted the alterations done.  I guaranteed my work.

Years later my son said to me, "Sell your knowledge".  So I created the book Clothing Alteration Secrets Revealed.  It covers (among other methods)  my Taking In and Taking Up Technique.  It covers all types of garments, like trousers, jeans, dresses, gowns, tops and jackets.  Plus things like how to replace zips etc.  It's all there.

So that's my story.  It can be yours.  All you need is some sewing skills and you can recover from whatever disaster you are in.

Good luck,
