Around the Net: Stitched the Film (257)

I’ve had this sitting in my email to blog about for a while but just haven’t had a chance to get to it:

Stitched is a fun-filled documentary following three quilters racing to complete their entries for the International Quilt Festival, the largest quilt show in the nation. The Houston show draws more than 50,000 quilters including three artists who created some controversy with their work. Quilting legend Caryl Bryer Fallert was the first to win a major prize for her quilt made with a sewing machine. She mentored Hollis Chatelain who caused a stir when she won an award for a painted quilt. And Hollis mentored Randall Cook who sparked controversy with his quilt of a male nude. In this 72-minute documentary, these quilters create their pieces to compete in the 2010 quilt show.

Sew grab a cup of Quilters Tea and sit back and enjoy the show:

Around the Net: Oxford Clothing (159)

I came across this amazing video, it was so genuine and heartfelt about this suits, yes I said suits. Oxford Clothing is the only custom tailored suit manufacturer left in the USA. Isn’t that unbelievable. Where did all of the sewing manufacturers for suits go? China?

Enjoy the video:

Oxxford Clothing – A Tradition of Tailoring from Alex Hamlin on Vimeo.

I was listening to a stand up comic the other night and he said he was doing a gig in China and on route his luggage got lost – surprised? He said he was the equivalent of Shakil O’neil what with his size 10 shoe and 36″ waistline…is anyone in China this size LOL. The sales guy said he was too fat! (Too Funny). He said he thought it was strange because arn’t all of our clothes made in China? This is too true.
