Three Happy Handspinners go to the Fair.

It was a little cool, but we were all dressed for it. Lots of people, all ages. Great time was had by all.

 Well, I have been working on a special project for you gals.

A Bra Making Tutorial.

Most of my friends know I make my own, and I need one or two new ones. Someone suggested it would make an interesting post. Normally I can make one in a few hours. Truthfully, it’s not rocket science. If you can sew, you can do it too. Parts can be ordered on-line. There is nothing magical about it. However I have discovered, it takes a lot longer when you are trying to explain what you are doing and photographing the process… I hadn’t anticipated that.

I hope to have Part 1 of Bra Basics ready for Friday.

    It was so good to see you at the fair, though i did chuckle at the man who passed by and proclaimed “cool, sewing!”.
