sewing is a dying art.
sad, but true.
Wal-mart has gradually been removing the sewing sections of the store.
small, independent sewing stores have been closing down everywhere.
Saturday, we saw another victim of this cruel and unhappy fate. a sewing store...going out of business. however, lucky for me (and all the other old ladies) who were able to benefit from the great deals.
the previous owner had passed on, and her husband and children and grand children were trying to sell everything. as we were checking out, we saw tears. mom and I had to bite our lip and blink our eyes in a rapid motion (to prevent said tears).
But let other pens dwell on guilt and misery...
we reaped large benefits from the sale.
some $1 a yard fabric:
and a CUTE vintage dress:
tonight I'm attending a gala for the "Cottage Theatre".
I have been nominated for "best supporting actress in a non-musical" from my performance as Rachel Lynde in Anne of Green Gables.
I'm very excited. they will also be showing clips from every play ever done there, and having...DESSERTS!
it sounds like a very enjoyable evening.
