Dang this sleeve problem! After the GCGSW where I made another scoop-neck T-shirt that had tight sleeves and shoulders, I adjusted the pattern for a forward shoulder, and I enlarged the sleeve cap to give me more room, but I STILL ended up with tightness.
Luckily, the print is so crazy that you can't see the wrinkles very well, but you know where to look.
The back of the sleeve cap is horribly off and wrinkled, and I see now that my sleeve cap length is 1/2" longer than the armscye, so that's a problem I should've fixed first.
But let's forget about depressing issues that will hopefully get worked out in October when I take a bunch of fitting classes at the Expo, and talk about the NEW JOANN! It's all bright and shiny when you step in...
And they even have a classroom at the front for classes.
Do you need to organize your sewing supplies?
There's an aisle for that! (Becky, I thought of you and bought a thread organizer.)
Do you need better lighting? There's an aisle for that!
Spraypaint? They've got their own special display case.
Books? All kinds of books - these are just for knitting and crocheting! The sewing area has the Complete Fitting Book by Sarah Veblen that I had to buy on the internet last year.
I do think the pattern books could be on an extra table - looks a little crowded here.
Hey, do you make jewelry? This is your new spot! (Just FYI, I wasn't following that poor lady around the whole time - that's my mom.)
They've got 2 or 3 aisles of beads and jewelry.
They're organized by color - here's a sample.
Look at these cute things you dangle from a necklace, I guess. This makes me want to take up jewelry-making.
Do you make jewelry and you need some display stands to sell it? There's an end cap for that! (I think that's the term.)
The grand opening is September 12 (the Mayor's going to be there - what?!), and here's a link to the activities and a 50% coupon - you're welcome!
Oh, Hancock, I love you, but you got some fixin' up to do!
