Victory by Sewing

This is a WWII era poster. While the extreme propaganda of the War posters is reather surprising to my modern eye, it was an extreme time. I think about this a lot, lately, as more and more of my friends and relatives lose jobs because the company they work for has moved operations overseas.

I wonder what it will take for us, as a country, or rather for the very rich men who actually run the country, to strt making things here again?

I was at three diferent thrift stores today, scouting for machines. I didn’t find any I wanted, although one store had a nice selection of fairly modern machines that would be good for any beginner. I did notice, as I always do, how busy thrift stores are these days. I don’t remember them being so busy in the past. Perhaps my own fears and worries are magnifiying the situation. In any case, I didn’t find any machines to play with, but I did find two shirts that I will be turning into fabric as soon as they come out of the dryer!

  1. Too true. Although last time I was at the Salvation Army store, standing at the checkout with armload of shirts, a lady behind me in line struck up a conversation. She was surprised my shirts were "all for fabric" and asked me about sewing lessons…We exchanged #s.I seem to run into a lot of people who "wish they knew how to sew". So there is hope!
