There is this tool called the Internet.  You can search for "lace suppliers" and "how to use a sewing machine"

If illiterate women in the third world can use a sewing machine how hard can it be?  It is just a square of cloth for goodness sake.  You cut it with a razor blade and a wooden stencil and hem the sides.  That's about it I would guess.

Show a little backbone.  If you sew them yourself your budget will go 5-10 times as far.  More women get their heads covered which is your objective is it not.

Go for it, buddy. Make my day. Sew one and post it on the internet. Big shot.

I am not your buddy. I will gladly sew one and send it to the forum owner. If she says it is nice then you must apologize for your comment above and admit they are easy to make. Deal?

You seem touchy. I was poking fun, or trying to. I should've known better than to do that with you. You tend to be a pretty morose character.

So, I'll just say I'm sorry in advance. There. Feel better?

Why do I get the ickies almost every time I'm at this forum lately?

Dear Jacamafala: you are poster I respect greatly.  I would ask you to re-read what you wrote: "Go for it, buddy. Make my day. Sew one and post it on the internet. Big shot. ."

Then reconsider: ggreg's response wasn't so out of line.  It seemed to me like you wanted to challenge him and basically said he was a liar, he couldn't sew and so it was silly of him to suggest that to someone else.

This thread shouldn't be about a sewing challenge anyway.  Though I did responde to Jayne that I have some sewing experience, it's beside the point.  I think the merits of the logic of the argumetn are sufficient.

The argument goes like this:

People all around the world, for centuries, have done sewing at home, without special talent or training.  Buying raw materials and sewing is much cheaper than finished products.  The OP wants more mantillas for less money for a good reason.  We assume she is capable of sewing.  Conclusion: she should consider sewing :-).

Eh, maybe he just hit a nerve. I am sorry.
