By the way, what's a polite term for a person who sews? I've gone to write "sewer" several times in recent posts and each time I've gone back and changed it, when I read over what I'd written. I don't think anyone wants to be called a sewer, at least not in print. It comes off the tongue ok for me. Sew-er and sewing person both sound a little stilted.
Suggestions, please . . .
