mmadalynne I found out last weekend that Mishka, the woman who taught me how to sew, the woman who ripped out so many of my sleeves, and the woman who calls me her second daughter, has cancer. She says she's died once before, but I'm not sure if she is up for the fight. As my mother, another woman who died of cancer, requested, please say a prayer for her. Only one because, you know, we wouldn't want to be too religious. #mentor #sewing #handmade #memade 6d
  •   joliemarielouise I will say a prayer for her. I'm keeping Mishka and you in my thoughts. 6d
  •   thesewingloft Sending good thoughts her way. 6d
  •   4jcallahan May the blessings of the universe surround Mishka and her loved ones. I am grateful to her for teaching you to sew so that you became inspired to create a community of sewists! 6d
  •   meagawat Good thoughts sent... 6d
  •   lostlittlecanadian I'm so sorry to hear that. Absolutely heartbreaking news. I hope the best for her! 6d
  •   oonaballoona Love to you both... 5d

  •   floridalily Loved your outfit and pic in the fort laud magazine@mmadalynne 3w

  •   megannielsenpatterns Hehe I've been sitting here so confused about the "washable"... 3w
  •   mmadalynne @megannielsenpatterns Me too! Why wouldn't buttons be washable? Did people way back when not wash their clothes? 3w
  •   catslye I think older buttons made of shell instead if plastic would not withstand the rigors of a wringer type of washing system. Do a Google image search on wringer washers. 3w
  •   mmadalynne @catslye Aha! I knew there had to be some logic behind it. Thank you! 3w

  •   asiyaaaaargh what are the loops for? 4w
  •   mmadalynne @asiyaaaaargh An alternative for fastening the hook. Can use the eye or the loop (correct me if I'm wrong; that's what I always thought) 4w
