In case you don’t know how to sew or have a sewing machine (like me): Update on how to buy the masks from W Diamond Group/Hart Schaffner Marx locally near Park Ridge. A great price too, a pack of five for $30. It’s wonderful that so many people have taken to make these, but this is such a great local company (Des Plaines founded in 1897! ) to support! I don’...

Ok I have a sewing machine but it doesn’t work-it was my grandma’s within Park Ridge. I want to try to make ppe. Is there anyone who knows a service I can do a tele-repair call with to try to troubleshoot the problem?

I have seen some articles about sewing face masks for hospitals in Park Ridge. I know it’s not ideal but perhaps better than medical professionals using the same one ALL day. Does anyone have a contact in a hospital or know of this is even something that is wanted? I sew quite...

Looking for someone who is good with “sewing math” to assist me on figuring out how much tulle I’d need to tie chairs for a charity event in Park Ridge. 500 chairs, likely need 2 layers of tulle since the hotel chairs are black and the tulle color I’m looking for would be a real or light blue. Like in the photo. Thank you in advance!

Does anyone know anything about antiques close to Park Ridge? I have a 1925 Singer sewing machine. It needs work. The cord is frayed and it probably needs some tuning-up, too. I’m afraid to plug it in because it would likely cause a fire. I see these 1925s on ...
