Advice from a Singer Sewing Manual, 1949.

Thursday, May 29, 2014

Shawn's mom sent me this the other day, and I couldn't help but laugh.
I mean, what?! "Never try to sew with a sink full of dirty dishes or beds unmade." I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be able to sew a stitch on most days if that were the case. Oh how times have changed.

  1. I saw this on Facebook the other day and had such a giggle! I'm not sure that I'd ever be "fearful that my husband will come home and I will not look neatly put together" - I think that's the least of my worries!!

  3. Baahahahaha. I also have a sewing business. (Memory Squared T-shirt Quilts, memorysquared.com) I would never sew if I followed this advice. My sewing friends also had a good chuckle from this. By the way. I remember seeing Sandi Patti a couple times years ago and I wonder if you were there. Anyway, blessings to you and your family. Sally

    1. Sally, If it was as far back as the late 80's, I very well could have been. :) Small world.
