Jet-washing patio areas and/or garden furniture - Reading area

Jetwashing patios, steps, or garden furniture is really effective I find at getting them clean without needing to use chemicals, and can give a real uplift to the look. Not suitable I think for decking or wooden furniture.

Needs a tap that hose attachment will fit to and electric socket to plug jet wash into - I have electric extension lead and long hose

Slightly higher hourly rate because I'll provide the jetwash and hose.

Light fruit cake

I have tried this cake recently and it was certainly a winner and especially good for those who don't like a very 'fruity' cake. 

it also freezes very well. Top tip ( in some places you get £10 for having a Top Tip printed) cut it into slices before freezing to be able to get a couple out when you want rather than having to defrost the whole cake.

Lawn Mower Blade Sharpening

I can sharpen your lawnmower blades.

It’s recommended that you sharpen the blade of your lawnmower at least once a year.

Dull blades will roughly rip through grass, leaving behind raggedly torn tips on the ends of the individual grass blades. And that can cause the grass to turn brown and leave your lawn more susceptible to disease and pests. Sharp blades, on the other hand, cut grass quickly and cleanly, resulting in a neatly trimmed, healthier lawn.

I can also sharpen kitchen knives.

Knife Sharpening Service

Knife Sharpening Service

I can sharpen your kitchen knives, however I cannot sharpen serrated blades.

A dull blade is actually more dangerous to use than one that is sharp. Here's why: A dull blade requires more pressure to cut, increasing the chance that the knife will slip with great force behind it. A sharp knife "bites" the surface more readily. 

 

Lawn Mower blades can also be sharpened and balanced.

It’s recommended that you sharpen the blade of your lawnmower at least once a year.

Dull blades will roughly rip through grass, leaving behind raggedly torn tips on the ends of the individual grass blades. And that can cause the grass to turn brown and leave your lawn more susceptible to disease and pests.

Preventative Car Maintenance

Regular preventive maintenance is probably the single thing you can do as a car owner to keep your car happy and save money on repairs in the future.



I can carry out preventative car maintenance procedures such as:

Power Steering Fluid Flush – keeps your power steering pump and rack in tip-top condition

This is not normally carried out during your annual service, but it is recommended to keep you car in good conidtion and prevent expensive bills down the line.

Lubricating locks and hinges – prevents doors and locks from getting stuck leaving you stranded

Fluid level and condition checks - low fluid levels or worn out fluids can cause serious damage to your car

Tyre Pressure checks with a professional calibrated guage -incorrect tyre pressure can cause increased fuel costs or even worse a tyre to explode at high speed!

Tyre Tread depth - tyre tread depth is critical for safety, worn out tyres can cause skidding in wet weather or tyres to explode in hot weather. On the other hand some less scrupulous garages will say your tyres will need changing when they dont to sell you new tyres, I can give you an independant evaluation.

And more

Yarn winding

Do you sometimes buy yarn in skeins, and have to wind it into balls before you can knit with it? Do you have to find someone willing to hold the skeins then spend a tedious time winding each ball by hand, making your (and their) shoulders ache? I have a yarn 'swift' and ball winder and can wind the skeins into neat 'yarn cakes' for you. Let me know in advance and I can bring them to a First Wednesday meeting or Meet & Greet, or bring the skein to a meeting or my house.

Typically 4 Bricks per skein, unless the skein is a particularly large one which will take longer to wind, in which case I will tell you the Bricks before I start.

Italian language

Online conversation is one of the few LETS activities that can be done even during lockdown! As a native Italian speaker I can offer help in various ways: conversation, language practice, translation, information. I have helped in the past a LETS member to communicate with Italian people in Italy, unable to speak English.

You can hire it to add a festive mood to your event. Very ecological!! No need to buy new stuff that you use only once and soon throw away. It can be adapted as for colours and length. Makes you feel good, virtuous and cheerful.

Knitting, crochet and sewing lessons

I can teach adults to knit or help with more advanced knitting techniques. I can also teach crochet, but cannot cover advanced techniques.

I have taught both topics for New Directions Reading, so have put many knitters and crocheters into the world.

Also, as a dressmaker of many years experience, I can teach adults to sew, to set up their sewing machine and use it, prepare, adjust & make up patterns, and make use of various sewing techniques. I have taught this subject for New Directions Reading, and have also acted as 'verifier' for the City & Guilds Fashion Diploma.

I have scanned larger documents in 2 or 3 parts and merged them, but probably not suitable for higher resolution requirements.

I can alter clothing to fit or undertake simple repairs. Any fabric/materials required would need to be provided, and you would need to come to me for a fitting.

I will need to see the garment to determine whether the alteration/repair is possible. Contact me for more details.

No complex special occasion garments (e.g. multi-layer wedding dresses, prom dresses etc.) and no zip replacement in jeans or jackets - I have retired from all this! But I will do straightforward hems/taking in for evening dresses.

I ran my own business as a dressmaker and alterationist for 15 years, recommended by bridal salons to their customers, so I have plenty of experience.
