Safe Spot for a Seam Ripper

Where to put a seam ripper when it's not in use? In your hair of course. I've seen some of the women store their pins in their hair as well, although they're not always as easy to remove. Those who have had their hair braided with "extensions" do not have this same handy spot for storage, although their various hairstyles are amazing. Today is Sunday, the one day when the Bitengye ladies do not come over to Canada House. We will walk up the hill to the Cathedral for the English service shortly, then spend a day catching up on a little rest, before beginning the third and final week of the workshop. Time has flown by, and there is much that we would still like to teach the ladies. Instead we are teaching more designs to Alice, and she will teach them these designs through the coming year, when they are ready for them.


  1. Hi Pippa:
    These ladies amaze me with their dedication to sewing and finding a place for that "seam ripper"
    Keep up the good works.
    Hope everyone's Valentine's Day Sunday was one of rest and rejuvenation.
    Take care

  2. That's not something you see every day! I hope they remember to take the pins out before they go to sleep. I hope you have a great final week of classes.
