The Mystery Package
Some of the sewers who come to my workroom are very good sewers indeed.
Their understanding of their own sewing machines is very good….their enthusiasm is fearless and I admire their confidence in the face of any sewing obstacle.
They bring mystery boxes or bags or bundles. I never know what is in that box or bag or bundle…garments that need that last tweak to just get them right, fabrics which refuse to behave in any pleasant way, mistakes which can now be confessed to and faced up to and find solutions for, a bit-more-than-can-be-handled projects that just need a plan, things to be copied or cut off or mixed into something.
