• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Have you ever had your suit trousers relined?

I have--with bemberg. It was a lot cheaper than I expected it would be, about $35.

I've never had any need it. What have you done to them?

OK, accidents do happen but why buy such a poor second hand suit? The best place for that is the back of the fire.

Besides, for some reason, I seem to find suits where the jacket is immaculate and the trousers superficially look good too except when I look at the lining (Bemberg usually) which is usually somewhat marked hence my need to reline these trousers.


Plus the knowledge that someone went commando in your pants makes you never want to put them on.
