You actually left the belt guard on your sewing machine?
Why remove it? Please explain
Same reason everybody else does, I'd guess. The belt isn't really dangerous and the guard gets in the way of turning the wheel by hand. I was just wondering if it was some kind of liability or local ordinance thing.
Obviously there are at least 3 people working on this. Is one of them you? Could you do this by yourself?
Did this all happen in one day? Great thread, by the way. Keep them coming, Mr. Despos.
It's 10 pm. Do you know where your tailor is?
Stephen Pulvirent, who has a blog called Simply Refined, is starting a series on a suit Chris will make for him, if you guys want to keep an eye out for a companion piece to this thread.
Stephen has one of the nicer blogs, if you're into that. He ran a piece on Chris a few weeks back.
