Ella’s Alterations Offers:

Back in the 80’s, when I was only 8 years old, I was fascinated watching the old singer sewing machines work. The small spindle looks like a wheel up top that is connected with a heavy duty leather belt that runs by a pedal under the machine to make the singer work. Everyday my mother just sit there work on her project until she finished my or my siblings dress.

As soon as my mother gets up in front of the sewing machine, I am there next to her, I put my feet on the pedal and just watch the needle go up and down as I play with the pedal. I made my first sewing project that very same year.

I had my first paying sewing project when I was 13. My neighbor asked me to make their kids blouses and skirts. At that age it made me feel that I am doing a very good job. Later on so as my classmates asked me to make their uniform.

3 decades later I still have my passion on working with garments. I made numerous projects. Costumes, dresses for my daughter, my husband’s costume remote caddy, curtains, sofa covers to pot holders you name it.

Like driving everyone should learn how to sew. Start doing it manually then eventually moving on an electric sewing machine. At one point in life somebody will loose a button or have to cut and hem pants.
