One of the things I love about Asheville is the willingness here to barter for services. I have bartered for landscaping and other services in the past few years and it has worked out well.
While I have personally sewn the curtains in the three original guest bedrooms on the second floor, I am looking for help to make curtains for my two dining rooms. The windows throughout the house are not standard and are rather large, so it would take me years to sew curtains. And since I don’t use a sewing machine (I had one, but couldn’t figure out how to use it), I hand sew everything.
I am looking for a competent seamstress who could sew curtains for me and in exchange, I would not only put up the person for the amount of time it takes for the project, but I would also invite that person to bring a friend, partner, etc. to stay with him/her during the length of their stay.
Breakfast would be included each morning of your stay and the only time restriction would be that the stay would have to take place in January or February (Sundays – Thursdays). I will, of course, provide the materials and we have plenty of space to work on the project. I don’t have a sewing machine so the person would have to bring one.
You can view the dining rooms throughout the website and on our Virtual Tour to get an idea of the size of the windows. If you think this is something you would like to take on, please send me an email. We’ll communicate from there.
