Sorry, I do not have the eysight to sew on a button. The rest is beyond me.

Meant to add wishing you success

Thank you so much..I don't think I was naive thinking I could interest a few sewing people into helping I am just finding it more difficult than I thought..I have lots of friends etc but I am the one who alters their garments as they do not sew...I have 3 daughters whose clothes I make regularly but they do not sew..I a sure I will find someone soon...thanks for your interest...there is a group in Worcester if you are near them...

Perhaps a local paper would be a good place to ask for volunteers?

or a Facebook page

I have 2 F/B pages one a group and the other a community...Cornwall angel gowns....I have just sent a message to a local craft group so maybe that will be productive...

Can you give a bit more info, like approx where are you? Cornwall is a big place. I live there, if you are not too far I could be interested. Long time since I did needlework though.
