They call it the Fabric Shops and Embroidery, but this place is actually about family vales.
Fabric is what Grandparents, mothers, fathers, sons and daughters use to
create, as a challenge and activity together. Not just clothes, not just a shirt
to wear as a badge of honor (as in my daughter made this), but making memories and shared experiences.
As a practice handed down generations, this is one that goes all the way back since people have worn
clothes. That’s a long time. Don’t hesitate to ask Hurley about his grown children and
grandchildren, nothing will bring a smile across his face faster, and he's got stories to tell.
This art and craft has been rapidly diminishing, along with all family values. People are
misdirected, in this great modern war of mass distraction, don’t let your family be so
misdirected. When you sit down with your family and can’t find the words to say, even when
you know so much needs to be said, having a practical hands on excuse to work together, to spend
time together, is a good place to start. It gives you the opportunity to teach, be followed, acknowledge
your children and their growth and skill, and to show them how much you love them. When people sit down
to play a video game all day, in isolation, all by themselves, that day is gone forever. No one laying on
his or her death bed wishes for more time to play a video game. Make your life worth having lived, by
sharing it, doing something meaningful, teaching, leading, and working together with real people, making
something real that can last your grandchildren's lifetimes. Enable them with knowledge and skill. Make
memories doing real things in the real world. Make memories making things, for and with the people you
You can find sewing
patterns, so if you buy the material, scissors, thread, and needles you can follow step-by-step
instructions and make clothing you and your family would be proud to wear.
I guess you now know what I think, and what my advice would be. So if you are interested in
fabric, sewing and embroidery, this is the first place you should stop in and ask, about these things
and what you might be able to do with these ideas. Say hello to Mr. Hurley and Mrs. Judith Adams for
