Women Seldom Get Credit


I can build walls, furniture, a tandem trailer from scratch, axles, spindles and all but my wife doesn't get enough credit in my opinion.

She doesn't know this is being posted, but she recently whipped out " Little House on the Prairie " dresses and matching bonnets for our grand daughter and grand daughter's doll.

I fear this talent is also being lost and the dry goods stores are even dropping like flies.

The only caveat, when she begins a project like that I may as well plan on preparing my own microwaved meals or similar because once she begins she does not stop until finished.

OH, it will be up to the parents to teach the grand daughter how to play Jax.

Looks beautiful.

She gets all the credit in the world from me. I used to watch my grandmother sew and it is a lost art. We throw away stuff not. That looks great to me though and send her my compliments.

Re: Women Seldom Get Credit


When I was a kid, I never had a store bought shirt, my grandmother kept me supplied.

You are correct in the statement that seamstress / tailor are a dying vocation.

Your SWMBO does a great job on her projects.

My compliments to her.

Re: Women Seldom Get Credit


Wow SeniorSitizen, she is very talented. I think your grand daughter will remember those dresses forever. Hopefully someone will keep them for her until she has a daughter of her own some day and she can play with them.

My sister can sew like that - makes just about anything. They make it look easy, but it takes a lot of talent and know-how.

Re: Women Seldom Get Credit


About the only thing I ever knew about a sewing machine, when I was a little kid, was how fast that treadle could smash my fingers between it and the floor because I could really make that big wheel go. Well, of course I got in trouble if I failed to take the belt off. My mother's hearing was excellent.

Re: Women Seldom Get Credit


That is some amazing work. She would put me to shame.

You don't see that skill that much anymore.

Re: Women Seldom Get Credit


Terrific work.........

And I bet she doesn't kick up alot of sawdust like you.

(I've often thought sewing would be something interesting to learn.... First, the machine itself is pretty darn interesting, and sewing is sorta like building,,, design...forms...joinery)

Re: Women Seldom Get Credit


Pardon me for pirating this for a bit.

Does anyone else remember when Flour came in sacks of a yard of printed cloth?

Which was saved to make clothing from?

Shirts, Skirts, Dresses and such.

I'll be learning sewing out of necessity later. Can't afford to pay someone to do it for the hot rod.

I may have to become Buds with SS and his missus.....
