    Wow, that was very interesting.  I'm sorry I missed the couture exhibit.  I will visit in September.  Looking forward to seeing it.  Thanks for sharing.  I live in Chicago and I plan to explore it more.  I know this sounds silly, but you live here too, right?  Do you belong to any organizations for sewing, crafts, quilts, etc. in the city?

      Nope.  I saw the link to the exhibit on Zuburbia.com (a vintage clothing website) and decided to share it with you.

        Well, thank you very much, it was very interesting.  Where are you from since you didn't fill out your profile. 

        I love talking to people from around the world.  I've never felt so connected in the craft world except through magazines.  Today I read a thread from a lady in France.  Awesome.

        Thank you Berna!  The Zuburbia website has all sorts of links to other vintage sites, too.  It's like a double bonus!
