Having never sewn anything myself, I was curious to learn about the "funniest situations" this hobby might entail. Judging by sample panels from "sewing's first cartoon book," these scenarios are the pillar stones of sewing humor.

  • A man steps on a needle, and the sewer laughs at his gyrations as he clutches his impaled foot.
  • People assemble mannequins incorrectly, making them resemble freakish I, Robot humanoids.
  • Sewing involves activities so repetitive and mundane that they become a comic mockery of "purpose."
  • The phrase "bust dart" exists and relates somehow to the aging process.


As a non-sewer, I didn't really get these jokes the way a full-fledged "Fabriholic" might. But I did laugh pretty hard at some outfits I found elsewhere on the site.

    SkyMall Product Review: Bark Deterring Ultrasonic Collar

    Works great on my child, who hasn't barked at all for as long as she's worn the apparatus. When she turns three, we will remove it for a trial period.
