Sister Haley is now the district seamstress. She was able to get the Brother sewing machine (hidden behind the couch in our flat) working.
She used the above sewing machine to rebuild (well, almost a complete rebuild) of one of the Elders shoulder bags. The seams had ripped out in 2 different places and he was losing things as he would walk along the street.
Slacks are another thing that seem to need constant mending. We are all glad that Margaret likes to sew.
