How Do We Sewing?

Journal Entry: Fri Oct 13, 2017, 10:43 AM

And now for something completely different!

Establishing background:
1) I learned how to sew when I was 7 years old.  That's about the earliest age children can hold a needle without dropping it and/or stabbing themselves.
2) I'm not very good at it, but I do small repairs and can technically do large things if I have patterns and tools.
3) I read a lot of's Personal Experiences section.
4) Slavery is whack.

1) I sent an email, as one does when one suspects a person or group may be unaware of a major problem and wishes to politely inform said person/group, so that said person/group can take appropriate action and keep their business/reputation afloat.
2) Then I thought about whether a company profiting off cultural and religious appropriation would take what I consider to be appropriate action to protect the very people they're appropriating from... and figured, "maybe I should make a public record of this, in case nothing happens.  ...Hey, there are fellow craftspeople on dA!  Maybe we can talk sewing!  (I like sewing.)"
3) My email went like this, verbatim:

Dear Earthbound,

I shopped at your stores for the first time this year, buying a number of clothing and novelty items.  I noticed something bizarre.  Within 5 to 14 weeks (so, summer), every item of clothing started falling apart, specifically the seams.  I started repairing them myself... Your cloth seems good, but the stitching on every one of these items is a special kind of terrible.  Like the terrible I did as an 8-year-old child on my first sewing machine.

Please check your supply lines-- at least the stitching factory(s)-- for slave labor and child labor.  This is not the work of proud adults.

See the fedora. Love the fedora.
But if you steal the fedora,
I will hunt you down with a shotgun and boil your liver.
