Myths About Sewing:
1. You have to sew.
Actually, very few sew. There is knitting, crocheting, spool
knitting, quilting, and all manner of crafts going on. Once,
someone brought an entire tennis court net, unrolled it
across the floor of Mary Willy's living room, and proceeded to
repair holes made by local wildlife! Tinker Toy, Lincoln Log,
Erector Set & Legos projects are also welcome.
2. Sewing is just a venue for gossip.
There is no gossip at Sewing. True, some people do come to
kibbitz. Kibbitzing is a fine art form of relevant discussion, well
mastered by the Sewing group.
3. Only women are invited.
No way. On any given Friday meeting, you might just find a man
in attendance. "Real Men" do come to Sewing
