In 1815, Thomas Jefferson announced, "I have come to a resolution myself as I hope every good citizen will, never again to purchase any article of foreign manufacture which can be had of American make, be the difference of price what it may." 


Tip of the Month 


When a garment is complete, lay it flat and straighten all the seams. Then lay a very damp towel over it. When the towel is dry, remove it and let the sweater dry completely. This will help to set and smooth the sweater without wet-blocking it.
