merrow (plantable) shirt from Etsy


i posted this, and then did a double take.

this shirt can be planted. it will then grow. into something.

yup. after it was posted Robyn read the description out loud .... i quote:

Our hangtag includes an insert that can be planted into the ground to grow beautiful flowers.

mark this -- the first piece of clothing i've ever seen that can be worn, washed, and grown into something beautiful. will wonders never cease.

....

the smart stitch


Apparently we've missed the best thing to happen to sewing machines in years. However, feeling an obligation to reward success when it's warranted, we've decided to re-publish the essay describing this newest of innovations in our field.

Congratulations Mahmood Inc., hat's off. Wish we'd been there first....

the move


What a day!

we've moved. and what a place we've moved to....


A long time ago Fall River, MA was the epicenter of fabric production. Out of our new south facing windows we look at the Durfee Buffington building; once the largest textile mill in the world.


Today we are residents of 502 Bedford St., and take up the top floor of a 132 year old Mill Building. Merrow is spread across 30,000 sq. feet with terrific views of a half dozen other mills, and most of Fall River.


It will take us another six to eight weeks to finish the renovation. But as of right now, we've got new digs. And it feels great.
