Judith Turner’s passion for clothing alterations began in the 1990s when her friend gave her a job in her fabric shop.  She soon found that she had a natural gift at altering clothes and in 1996 she branched out and opened up her first shop with nothing except this skill.  It was soon after opening her shop that Judith began writing manuals on clothing alterations for the staff.  She wanted everyone to be altering the clothes in the same way, and also wanted to give her customers a 100% guarantee that the garment would be altered to their satisfaction.
