Fun Column to Read

joress | Posted in Gather For A Chat on

Jeanne Marie Laskas is one of my favorite writers. She has a weekly column in The (Washington) Post Magazine. Her column this past Sunday was perfect for all of us:

    I'm a big Jean Marie fan also.  I post links to her column in the gardening forum, Over The Fence, occasionally.  When is she going to release her book?

      Thanks for posting this column.  I like the summing-up sentiments; that we are connected to others by our sewing.  As a new member to this forum, it is delightful to meet with other like-minded people.  As an at-home mother, it is opening up my world.  Jeanette

    Good Morning, Joress,  I just finished reading the "Washington Post" article you reccommended.  Thank you!  It was somehow affirming to be reminded that sewing has been a natural response in other's homes.  The author, Jeanne Marie Laskas, found a portion of herself in the act of shortening those pants.  I can't imagine her not doing some sewing in the future.  I too have memories of mom who was a sewing instructor (taught for Singer) and of summers sewing with a cousin and sister.  First item was a royal blue circular skirt (no pattern required),  with an hem that went on and on and on!   

    Like Jeanne Marie, function and need have often been the impedus for sewing.  I am glad you shared this article!  Think I'll go make some applesauce and play in the sewing room!
