Look how much you have to pay for hand finished suits and shoes!

Tell that lady about Savile Row.
don't call it 'homemade' or even 'handmade.' call it 'bespoke' like custom jewelry, cars, suits, etc.

Tomorrow, at our Spring Show there will be a whole section of tiny cardies knitted for the local prem baby unit. The hospital always us to carry on and say that the individual items made with care and thought are so much appreciated by the mums, who are not only often short of such small sizes clothes but also love the individuality of the gifts.

Some people wouldn't recognise generosity of spirit if it got up and punched them in the nose. To quote Gandhi - "Be the Change"!

Even more sad is the fact that some people actually WANT a crappy sweater from walmart
