When I first noticed Rory's advertisement I thought "oh no, there's no way I can get to the US for 15 weeks" but then, reading further realised it was in Ireland.   I am, depending on the way you look at it in a very fortunate position being unemployed through disability and, the insurance company has finally coughed up - a pittance - so I have decided to bite the bullet, so to speak, and after a stimulating conversation with the aforementioned Master I signed up.  I struggled, even with the wonderful help from the C&T pro's to learn trouser drafting, probably five months longer than it should have taken.  Considering too some rather painful fitting posts on the internet for upper body garments it is obvious that it is impossible to fully understand fitting and drafting, one needs to have hands-on teaching.  London is to expensive to live for 4 months making Andrew Ramroop's course a little out of my reach.

I guess I need to start getting a taste for Irish Stout!  ;D

Over the internet kinda hard to learn. With a tutor right there so much more can be communicated.

It's great news. I think Tom should dive right in while the circumstances allow it.
