Fabric.com. Here we are at the airport. We hadn't been able to sleep much the night before and the photo reflects that.
Fabric Mart gift certificate. Originally, I was searching for a retro rayon print as I want to sew a dress on the Singer 66. Not being able to decide, I changed direction and went practical. What I need most is inexpensive fabric to use for pattern fitting. I found this 54” wide cotton broadcloth. After a 20% discount the fabric was $.80 per yard. Of course, plain muslin allows problem areas and black Sharpie markings to be read trouble-free. But, at $.80 a yard, I think this is just right!
I have almost finished the Singer biography. I want to learn more about the sewing machine wars and will be seeking out other books focused on sewing machine history.
May the coming days be more sewing productive!
