Forlorn For Fabric Shopping

I find myself wanting to do a bit of small alteration to an existing Dickens costume for my new role as Valda Schultze from The Begum's Millions. I haven't started any sewing yet, but I've utterly lost patience with the process.

There's just no joy in fabric shopping anymore. A trip through Hancock's was disappointing. The clerk said they don't carry taffeta anymore because it is unpopular. Okay... So seeking trims instead, I find a bland array mostly intended for upholstery. Giving up there I head to JoAnn knowing my luck won't likely improve. But to my great surprise, I find some steel grey taffeta on sale for the holidays. But then I have to check out. First, wait in line for cutting, then wait in an even longer line to pay. Five minutes to find what I wanted; 50 minutes to exit the store.

Long enough to type this entire post on my iPhone while just waiting to check out, and still have time to go browse Facebook while I wait.


  • Sounds like my exerience at Ross. I don't go to Ross much anymore.
