But, since you've said that anyone can learn to sew, go to it, each of you make a dozen mantillas and send them to the OP gratis.

Frankly, I assume a priest is too busy.  But I have said a few times that a man can sew a mantilla just fine too.  If you really have a need to insinuate that a hatred of women is behind what I write, insinuate away, but it doesn't make it true.

If the OP is also too busy, fine.  I've said multiple times on this thread that there are good reasons not to sew them as well -- they are just not as economical.  So there's benefits and drawbacks to each approach.  What I really object to is the attitude that there's something wrong with suggesting sewing.  It's relatively easy, but people don't think to try it themselves, and so it's a good suggestion.

As to your final "challenge" -- no thank you.  I prefer to use simple reason and logic to make a point.  I know from personal experience it's easy to make your own baby food instead of buying it and it's much cheaper, but I don't need to actually make it and send it to you for that to be true.  I also know that it's easy and fun to have an herb or vegetable garden, but I don't need to send anyone veggies to make that point.  And so on.

Your "challenge" is obviously not a serious attempt to help the OP but is just a transparent way to put down my suggestion.  My suggestion to consider sewing, however, is still one I stand by.  It was not said to put down women or to make you feel insecure or blah blah blah blah blah.  It's a normal thing to consider if you want to save money.

What kind of batshit crazy world do we live in anyway, in which such a suggestion is considered so problematic?

And why does everyone ignore the other points ggreg and I have made: that this applies not just to sewing but to other things: doing your own basic carpentry, for example.
