It was a party.
A sewing party.
We got our prototype for the heart gel pack pouches from Nao last week, and started out the third quarter festively with sewing parties Tuesday and Wednesday nights. With five borrowed sewing machines,amazing expert sewers, and regular folk to do the cutting and gluing, we pulled it off. We thought we might need a third sewing party (who doesn’t love a party?), but Jane and Hannah stayed late into the night Wednesday to finish off 55 pouches.
Thursday night I was all set to return the sewing machines. But Facilities Management was closed and couldn’t drive me, so I had to return them by wheelbarrow. Giant wheelbarrow. If you ever need one, check the shack behind Gummere. If you were one of the people who saw me huffing across campus Thursday night dragging a wheelbarrow decked with sewing machines…now you know why.
Come by our Comfort Station in the Campus Center, Thursday 11:00-4:00, to see the fruits of our labors.
