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

I completed the survey and then realized after the fact that I missed the submission window. In any case, I guess 1 responder might not make a big difference but maybe there are more like myself? I don't know.I think that we should not start voicing our individual likings. We should work with the survey”s information
Maybe you are right. I just worrie that everyone of us will start voicing their likings and thus making the survey redundant or buring it under a pile of not sistematizad information difficult to work withI completed the survey and then realized after the fact that I missed the submission window. In any case, I guess 1 responder might not make a big difference but maybe there are more like myself? I don't know.
That said, it seems like there are quite a few people voicing black with black soles - not sure if they're all accounted for in the survey. If we're only dealing with the answers strictly from the survey then so be it, but it was my understanding that the survey was a starting point for an open discussion rather than the boundaries of a confined one.
I was also a little disappointed by the low number of non-white sole optionsI liked some of the options (antiCato is cool and unique in sneakers) but I want to insist on the off-white soles instead of white. Otherwise there is too much contrast and are too affected by dirt
To be honest, if executed well, I would buy all of the pairs you mentioned.Hi all, i just wanted to chip in here eventhough i guess my opinions can be seen as a little self serving.
Colour is an important consideration but over the past few months I think i have given every friend, family member or acquaintance a headache by popping into every store i pass that sells sneakers (be it entry level right through to high luxe) and trying them out for fit, comfort, quality, material and of course look.
To say this is a saturated market is no understatement but still it seems no one has gotten it completely spot on.
I think the important thing here is to get some samples (perhaps even slightly varied) made by our craftsmen in a few base colours such as white/white sole, black/black sole, anticato/off-white and perhaps one suede option and use these simple ones to determine if we are aesthetically on the right lines from a design, comfort and function point of view as far as the data from questionaire points towards.
The anticatos seem to be the popular coloured pairs and the advantage is they can be done in a range of colours so we aren't really limited on that offering as it is always a crust base that is hand coloured (unless we want a deeper anticato in which case a sienna base can be used).
Colour is easy for us to navigate once we have the pair created, pictured and it is something you are happy with in the base itself.
What do you think?
