Meet Tom

Tom's become a regular lounger at Hip Stitch.  He's not the typical customer who walks through our doors. (Well, he's not female, which consists of the majority of our customers)
He walked in one day last fall and asked if he could have a sewing lesson, as he wanted to learn how to take in his jeans - he'd lost some weight and didn't want to have to go shopping for new pants.  He had patience, interest, and quite a knack for using a sewing machine - and was soon tackling the task of taking apart pants and re-fitting them.  He's moved on to creating a hat pattern (he's donning a version of it in the picture above)
He's also become the unofficial handyman of the store - to which I'm eternally grateful.
So glad you're a regular, Tom!
