scouts-l Mail Archive for May of 2000: Power sew them thar patches!!!
Tue May 23 2000 - 21:10:15 CDT
Knot what I had in mind at all. My boy has been itching to get on the sewing
machine for some time now. I sew EVERYTHING on with that old singer, and I
think he's kind of jealous. We got it with Green Stamps (don't that date me
a bit?) and I use the clear plastic thread. Most people really have to look
to see how I affixed my patches. I do all of the repair work and hemming as
well. Sure, it's the machine thing for a boy to want to sew, but his mom
won't touch it, and that's just fine with me. The only way I learn something
is to jump in head first!!! (Planning does help when sky diving though).
Microsoft calls me an "Early Adopter", and Dan the Man calls me much more
(Of course, he sends his AND his son's shirts to his mother to sew-did I
tell you he was an Owl?). Still, if there is skill I don't know, I try and
go learn it before I lose the wonder of it all. Isn't learning an awesome
adventure? Now that you mentioned it though; skydiving??? Not a bad idea! Or
maybe we can super-charge that sewing machine... argh argh argh!

Subject: Sewing on patches
Oh yeah, one more thing, please learn to sew your own patches on and
teach your boy when he hits First Class.
I gave my kid his own "Merit Badge Application Kit" a long time ago. It has
served him well as camp staff, too. I haven't sewn on anything since the kid
stopped earning arrow points.
Take one small Rubbermaid (c) box, the one that's about 5x3x3, and stock it
