We'll get to this cool old sewing machine and Wes in a moment, but first, I have big news! After years of threatening to do it, I'm finally publishing a Colorado Springs Daily Photo calendar, just in time for the holidays! I've ordered my first run and will have pictures to show you in a few days. If you're a fan of this blog, or if you have someone on your gift list who would appreciate a calendar featuring twelve lovely images of Colorado Springs, stay tuned!
Back to the cool old sewing machine. It's currently occupying space at Bon Shoe Repair, two doors up from my studio. The proprietor, Wes, told me that he's selling it for a friend. (If you're interested, give Wes a call at 719-635-9952.) I love this old place. Wes doesn't win any awards for neatness, but he's practically the only cobbler left in town and he does great work. Right now he's repairing one of my purses. I've posted about Wes before (HERE) -- he's really a local treasure, and I love having him as a neighbor.
