I believe I sent you an email about this already, I randomly came across this posting when I googled "tailor trainee in portland." I included below my first email I sent out to you. I know i do not have any experience what so ever, but I do learn very quickly and I am serious about learning this art. I have a full time job which would restrict me to the weekends but I can adjust my schedule if need be. I hope you respond to this email and look forward to work.
My name is Dan, this might be a long shot but no one ever gets anywhere without trying. I am unsure if this is the right way to go about this, but for some time now I have had a serious interest in making suits, mainly for myself but it is an art, and something that cannot be learned by watching videos over the internet(i have tried).
However with every video I watch,every blog I have read, the conclusion always comes out the same, I need to learn from someone in person. I have tried looking at taking classes at the university but there is no class that can teach me what I need to know. My question to you is this; Do you need an apprentice? I would love to learn how to make suits, and the experience of learning would be payment enough. I do not wish to get paid, I just want to learn, and help you make suits.
I know this is a long shot and must be an odd question but I figured I try anyways. I would really appreciate a response, maybe you're not looking for help now, but maybe down the road you might keep me in mind.
