the Sound of Sewing

Mr. S

Mr. S is my right hand man and fortunately for me my partner in crime aka husband too. He's been snapping the photos of me lately, putting up with my unreasonable demands and doing a fine job cleaning the kitchen a lot more often than he probably should (considering he's still working a full-time job and trying to compose music and sound design in his off hours). He put together a little sewing sound montage for me and you this last week and I was so positively elated with it that I couldn't help but post it here. Have a listen (you'll need to pop out of your reader to push play):

Sewing Sounds by A Fashionable Stitch

What do you hear? There's quite a few little sounds in there. Mr. S took samples of my sewing machine, my iron when I press fabrics, my thread snippers, pin pricks into Ms. Prism and several others and created this short little sound file for me. He's pretty good at stuff like this. In fact, I would say that Mr. S is obsessed with sound. I met him in the music program at the University of Utah. We dated for a few years and got married 3 years ago (almost 4 come this October). We're pretty fond of each other. He's such a support to my little business - helps me with the shipping and gives me ideas and encouragement. He's also very supportive of my sewing, though my fabric choices can baffle him until they're all made up into a garment. Ha ha!

I thought you would enjoy this little snippet of something that he does. You'll be seeing quite a bit more of him as I have some serious plans to make a few men's items here and there just for him. In fact, I'm working on revamping a men's shirt for Mr. S at this very moment. Poor thing, his wardrobe has most definitely seen better days.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend!
