Fabric Fair Happiness
The Salvation Army has an interesting little fund raiser known as the Fabric Fair. This iswhen a bunch of donation of fabric and other craft related items are sold off.
The Clown Brigade picked up a sewing machine and 4 bolt of fabric.
One of the bolts of fabric will reupholster the couch in the Clown Cave. The other will be clown clothes and the like.
The read deal was the sewing machine. WE picked that up for five buck. it is a Kenmore machine that was probably pretty run of the mill back when it was made. By today's standards it is a great machine. It is next to indestructable and works like a champ. I really found it hard to believe that such a great machine was just sitting around.
In addition to being a great little machine it goes through everything that we have in our inventory including leather. I am really pleased with it.
The black fabric we picked up is a great lamay that will do nicely on the couch. The couch we currently have it bearly holding together as far as it's covering is going. WE were going to just make a couch cover. Now that we have the stuff we should do a proper job making it look nice. We made a cover for another couch in the corps and it does not look wonderful. This could look wonderful if we do it correctly.
Be safe out there and keep your stick on the ice.
