Loyal readers, all sorts of exciting news today. First, I'm delighted to announce that at this very moment I am blogging directly from my bed. That's right, friends, my home internet service has been restored and I couldn't be happier.
Though I never want to even smell another bagel ever again, I would like to thank the kind staff at Brooklyn Bagel & Coffee Company for allowing me to type away for hours on end for nearly a week, all at the cost of a daily cup of coffee. You're the best!
And now some even more exciting news...
Starting in May I'm going to be teaching! (Sewing -- not men's grooming) I'll have much more information shortly but it looks like I'll be offering three month-long elementary and intermediate-level classes in men's clothing construction. Nothing's written in stone yet, but the Play-Doh is hardening.
Live teaching is exactly what I want to be doing now, though my longer term goal, as you already know, is to have my own sewing/musical-comedy variety TV show -- a cross between This Old House and Donny and Marie. I just hope it happens while Steve and Eydie are still kicking, and will someone please get Charo on the phone?
It's going to happen, I just know it. I'm doing my daily visualizations. Are you?
Friends, sometimes I wonder how many of you know what I'm talking about. I mean, I know you're reading and all, but I fear some of my younger followers, as well as those on other continents, are often at a near-total loss. Google Analytics assures me I'm a favorite among the Pygmy and !Kung tribes, but do they get the jokes?
Finally, I want to apologize publicly for yesterday's epitaph to the secretary which, based on your passionate comments, was clearly premature. I also learned why so many of my followers have time to read blogs in the middle of the day.
Administrative assistants, office managers, and other committed team members, you are appreciated -- and I take mine black, no sugar, please.
I'm keeping it short today but I wanted once again to thank all of you for your ongoing support and encouragement. I couldn't do it without you.
Have a great day, everybody!
Picture something like this...but with sewing machines.
I'm a native New Yorker and self-taught sewing fanatic! I've been sewing obsessively since 2009 and today make all my own clothes using mostly vintage patterns and vintage sewing machines. Welcome to the warm and whimsical world of Male Pattern Boldness, where the conversation is sewing, style, fashion, fabric, and more!
