Hi, I am recently interested in smocking again as a grandmother. I no longer have access to a pleater and am interested in finding someone who may do pleating as a business. I sent a bishop to be pleated at a company in California, but am discouraged that I may have been "taken" as it has been 2 months and the dress has not been returned to me and I can no longer reach the woman by phone. I would be willing to write it off as a bad experience and try again! I would really like to try smocking again before investing in a pleater.
Any ideas for me?!
