Our story

AlterAround is an online community connecting local Alteration Artisans, seamstresses, and tailors with customers looking for the nearest alteration service to their location.

AlterAround is spearheaded by TaF.tc (Textile & Fashion Industry Training Centre) in partnership with NTUC U Women & Family.

AlterAround empowers aspiring entrepreneurs who are passionate about sewing, offer alteration services, and would like to work from the comfort and convenience of their homes.

AlterAround goals are to support local altertation artisans and seamstresses, and to bring work, hope and empowerment for women and home business.
