9/11, sewing, and off topic thoughts by Tom Farrell
And so another 9/11 has come and gone. 9/11/2001 began in confusion for me. I was recently unemployed, had been up late, and overslept. I was awakened by my neighbor knocking on my door. I grabbed my keys and stumbled blearily to the door, where he told me two jetliners had flown into the World...

Compact sewing machine suggestion by Melinda Meahan - take out TRASH to reply
I am trying to figure out what kind of compact-sized sewing machine to send my daughter at college and thought I would take suggestions here.

Replacing bra shelf foam with horsehair? by wurstergirl
I'm trying to innovate on a support shelf built into a soft cup bra, which is made of tricot-fused foam. It would be nice if it were a little cooler and thinner, making "less bra". (In a size 48J, that's a lotta foam.) My current thoughts are toward layering tricot with an equally supportive,...

why turn clothes inside out for washing by Alan Horowitz
I first observed people doing this when washing clothes by hand, in the Philippines. I presumed it was a local folkloric nonsense. Just recently, I noticed that the fine print of the Care Label of my jeans, includes a instruction to turn inside out before washing. What is the reason for it?

pattern storage by DKiely33
What is the best way to store patterns that have already been used, cut and will be used again? I'm going to be setting up a little sewing area and would like to know how to set it up correctly from the start. Would an art store be useful for storage options? Thanks, :) Dee

Shocking the employees at Jo-Ann's by duh who
I went into Jo-Ann's tonight to get some interfacing. I'm not sure how the woman got the idea that I was "repairing" my own shirts. When I said "Repair? I make them from scratch." And then there's Betzina's books that never deal with men's clothing. Its such a hard life living with this...
