I've had numerous of these types of comments & I usually just say that I no longer do those types of sewing & give them the name of a "professional" person or company that may be interested in their project. However, I do hem pants for a friend who has palsy & is unable to do it herself, plus, she has one leg shorter than the other so really needs them adjusted. As always, there are exceptions to the "rules".
Yes Jo, we do favors for our friends & that is why we stay friends as we treat each other kindly & with love & respect. Too bad our world doesn't follow through with the same treatment.
