News from the Friends of Minute Man National Park

Saturday, November 2
The 6-Hour Suit Challenge
Hartwell Tavern. Route 2A Lincoln, MA
10 am - 4 pm

An English tailor in the 18th Century once boasted that his shoppe could measure a customer, create a pattern, and finish a suit of clothes in six hours. Minute Man NHP's own group of experienced tailors are going to put this claim (and their own skills) to the test. Can such a thing be accomplished? Visit Hartwell Tavern and find out!

Fun!

I wouldn't mind being the person they are making the suit for.

With a great wardrobe that's still in the flat-fabric stage.

Oh, I am so sorry that I just heard about this! Can't make it, but I'll call my granddaughter who lives next to the Park. She'll love it since I' m teaching her to sew.

Yes, it can be done. It takes organization, coordination and quite a few sewers. There are Hong Kong tailoring shops where you can still get a completely hand-made suit in a day. But it's certainly not a common thing, especially in the US. More power to 'em!

Measure twice, cut once. While this saying is useful in many ways, I have no qualms about editing my posts.
