About Judith aka genie

I live in a beautiful part of the world - Runaway Bay at the Gold Coast, Australia. My son Daniel and his wife Amalia live not too far away, so that I get to see my 3 grandsons on a regular basis. Having operated 6 clothing alteration shops, I find working from home works for me. I am kept busy with clients, plus as a self publisher I personally complete all orders for my book Clothing Alteration Secrets Revealed. My goal is to help empower other people to feel confident altering ready-made clothes. I built this website with the advise of Morteza - developer of the Geelus POS software. Sewing is my passion through the medium clothing alterations. Happy altering, Judith Turner
