                Joyous Jane – I sympathise with you, makes you wonder if anybody ever looks on here!!!! Started so many posts and never even had one reply, not great if you need an urgent answer.

                    Sorry, I didn’t answer this question originally because:-

                    1. It’s in a section "For Ladies" that I seldom look at.
                    2. The subject "Dress making" is something I know nothing about AND it didn’t reflect the fact that you were actually posing a question about: "Where can I get a skirt altered near Vamos?

                    If you ask Aspasia in the IN.KA supermarket in Kefalas, she will give you the name of a lady in (I think) Drapanos.

                    If you ask any female Greek shop owner in Vamos she’ll probably give you a name.

                    If you go to Souda you’ll find a "White Goods" shop up a side street that’s roughly opposite the grain silos. The owner, Katerina, does clothing repairs and alterations. The shop sells everything you could need for sewing, knitting, cross-stitch and also "white goods" (i.e. linens).

                        Kefalas – why are you looking at "The Ladies" section? this is not for men, the clue is in the title of the subject heading. Joyous Jane has already found somewhere now anyway!!

                            Dear Fowles and Kefalas,

                            Thanks for your help. The lady I found did a good job and only charged 5 Euro’s. Yes Fowles it is frustrating when you have no replies..but ladies dress making not an exciting subject I guess !!

                                Yellow card, Fowles.

                                When somebody takes the time to offer suggestions – regardless of gender – they should be thanked, not berated.

                                    Just hold on a minute – The Ladies section of this site is for ladies isn’t it? If it isn’t, then I will NEVER be posting here again! As it happens the subject matter in this instance wasn’t of a "ladies" nature but if it had been does that mean that men are just allowed to get involved in ladies conversation which could be anything from breasts to "other" parts I have misunderstood the concept of this sub-heading – have other ladies also misunderstood this?

                                            Now that I know that any Tom, Dick and Harry can drop in on "The Ladies" section to see where to get an up to date smear /mammogram test and stay in touch with our medical history, I understand why this section is rarely used.

                                                the plus side of this is that you can now also access the "For Men" board, which will let you into their hidden world whose contents we could only dream of before .
