Do you repair quilting, knitting, or crocheting for a living? We often get asked if we can do small repairs. We aren't able to, but we would love to give your name to the people who ask! Please give us your name and phone number, and we will pass it on to our customers who need help.

This request prompts a memory. One day about a year ago, Cynthia answered the phone, and a man told her that he was an exotic dancer from Illinois. He was in town for a dance contest, but had a problem: He had forgotten to bring his ... covering. He wondered if someone could make him one. He assured us that he would provide all the measurements so that we would not have to measure him. Unfortunately, this assurance did not make us feel much better about the task, so we said that the only kind of sewing we did was quilting, and we were sorry.

We will now assure you that if you give us your name as a repair service, we will not send any exotic dancers your way--just plain old afghans, sweaters, and quilts.
