i HATE facings!!!!! by Admiralla

need bow tie/cummerbund hardware supply by Penny Lemire
Once again I've walked myself into a volunteer job of epically idiotic proportions (so what else is new?). Our middle school bands (and maybe chorus and strings) want to add bow ties and cummerbunds to the uniform white-shirt-black-bottoms. This is to add a little pizzaz and identification for...
