Hand Sewing Shoe

"I've always preferred to do it by hand."


"Well, that's an excellent way to get started," I allowed.


"But I don't always finish that way."


"Of course not. Given the choice, who would?"


"Oh, you'd be surprised. Lots of us never do it any other way. I've heard you can hire someone to do it for you, but you know what they say: if you want something done right, you've got to do it yourself."


I was starting to wonder why she'd invited me over at all.

Every shoe tells a story — Can you imagine finishing an entire quilt with this allover feather stitch by hand? I can't!
