Does anyone have any sewing themed quotes, anecdotes, poems, songs, stories etc. that could be shared at a sewing club Christmas party?

I scored an amazing number of hits by searching:
Sewing Song Parody.

Oh my gosh,
Fanny Brice,
The Song of the Sewing Machine
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Searching: Sewing Poems
also elicited several hits including a shareable story.
Sewing Poems

Have fun.

I found the first two jokes online....not sure how appropriate the 2nd one might be for your sewing group.

Quote:
A sewing machine walks into a bar and the sewing machine behind the bar says "Aren't you the famous Singer" and the sewing machine says "why Janome"

Quote:
CLASSIFIED ERRORS, from a small-town daily:

(Monday) FORE SALE - R. D. Jones has one sewing machine for sale. Phone 555-0707 after 7 p.m. and ask for Mrs. Kelly who lives with him cheap.

(Tuesday) NOTICE - We regret having erred in R. D. Jone's ad yesterday. It should have read: One sewing machine for sale. Cheap: 555-0707 and ask for Mrs. Kelly who lives with him after 7 p.m.

(Wednesday) NOTICE - R. D. Jones has informed us that he has received several annoying telephone calls because of the error we made in his classified ad yesterday. His ad stands corrected as follows: FOR SALE - R. D. Jones has one sewing machine for sale. Cheap. Phone 555-0707 and ask Mrs. Kelly who loves with him.

(Thursday) NOTICE - I, R. D. Jones, have NO sewing machine for sale. I SMASHED IT. Don't call 555-0707, as the telephone has been disconnected. I have NOT been carrying on with Mrs. Kelly. Until yesterday she was my housekeeper, but she quit."

but these two are from my Farside calendar collection...Merry Christmas lol

It would be a hoot if someone did cartoons based on our current threads here. Can't you just picture one of Mufffet laying in bed.. counting her bobbins in order to fall asleep.. stuff like that. I could draw them easily.. but getting them to post would be the problem.. luckily for the membership.. I don't have the skills.

Do you have a scanner? You could draw and scan them in. I know I for one would like to see whatever you would draw........and it would *definitely* be a hoot!

Most of the time I'm afraid to join in on a "joking around" thread or attempt to post anything funny because I never know how it will be received. No one here really knows me, and could take me the wrong way. I feel I've unintentionally killed many a thread that others where having fun on. After reading the above topic again, I realize the original poster was looking for *humor* in poems, songs, quotes etc. and NOT asking for *jokes* related to sewing. Oh well, I tried to help, and even though the printed jokes were lame, I do the enjoy most Farside cartoons. Guess I have too much time on my hands right now, and should refrain from posting after my bedtime too. lol

I believe the OP could find some very humorous stories in few of the older topics here on PR about our members "mishaps of sewing". I know I LMAO to the point of tears while reading some of them. If I can find them again I'll try to provide a link.

Thanks. I've had a ball reading some of the linked posts. I would love to see the cartoons posted, too. I hope you figure out a way to share some. The jokes were funny, too. I will definitely be sharing some of these with my sewing sisters.
