The Manly Art of Sewing

This may look as if I have been hard at work all day sewing. But don't be fooled I had nothing to do with any of it. In fact I spent the day at the ironing board, setting all the dyes in my recent crop of printing, ready for next weekends market. Peter is the one that has been hard at work, using my back up sewing machine, which he now claims is his. I am just waiting to see how he can customise a sewing machine in a manly way. He has even started on his own fabric stash.
Now apparently there is an art to manly sewing. Which involves spending weeks on research and development out in the garage, trialing different materials. Followed by lots of sitting about drinking tea and thinking. Then days and days of sewing to produce ...............
.......... one Kindle Pouch. It is a very lovely Kindle Pouch and if you would like to purchase it, and be the first to own a Coulter and Coulter Kindle Pouch, you can over in our Felt shop. Hopefully, there will be more produced soon.

  1. And he looks most manly doing it! Can I ask how long it took Peter to thread the needle? I've never seen a guy successful at it :). Love the Kindle pouch, can imagine it will be a really great seller.
