Found this on KQED’s Spark. On the 15th of every month Michael Swaine sets up a cart in the tenderloin and sews whatever you bring him. Cool social art project! – Link

    The World would be a better place if more Men learned to sew. -Knitting OK also!

    I remember the guy who came through our neighborhood in the ’50s to sharpen scissors. That was a time when scissors were proper tools worth sharpening. Scissors were not stamped metal disposables. Repair in general has become a lost art. So what was once an occupation is now a social art project.
