"I added my sleeve, now all I need to do is the final hand stitching and fill out my form. My son is entering the jacket he sewed so we are going to do this 'fair' thing together this year."

"Hi Cheryl, I tried to find it online, and I know she got a few yards on sale, so it may not be available. I think one of us can snail mail you a swatch if you would like. Send us your address if you choose to do so, as that would be easy.  "
