Mend & Measure

. Nicole Miller, owner of the Seattle shops Blackbird and Field House, is offering free Sunday classes on repairing clothing starting this weekend. Here's the description:
In the old U.S. Navy, sailors had one day a month called Mend & Measure where they were excused from their duties to launder and repair their clothes. Wouldn't it be great if times were different and this was a priority again?
Times is different and I think it's cool that someone in the business of selling clothing is also in the business of helping her customers maintain what they have. My best Filson coat has a bullet hole in it that needs to be repaired* and I can't make it to this Sunday's class but maybe I'll bring it in another weekend.
