There have been five new ladies who have joined us to make this set of costumes; one doesn't even sew, but she spent an hour or so hammering jeans buttons on the shoulders of the soldier costumes so the capes can be attached. A couple of others haven't sewn in a long time and are getting their skills refreshed; the other two are experienced seamstresses...one makes a large portion of her wardrobe, another has a business in which she makes and sells diaper bag sets, so she's used to assembly-line sewing. Together, they made a huge difference and today I got up believing that we will actually finish on time...close, but on time ;)
But, we had to pack up all the stuff yesterday, since our sewing room is needed for a classroom. So I'm sewing at home(and, hopefully, pushing laundry through the washer and dryer) today.
