We are so fortunate to have our work room on Main Street in downtown Rock Hill. It is an old historic building with giant windows, tall ceilings and really good lighting. In this place, we laugh, eat lots of candy, listen to loud music and obviously make plenty of bow ties. Sometimes we are amazed at the beautiful things we get to see throughout the day. One of our seamstresses (and abstract artist in her spare time), Dominique took these shots.
We have really good light.
Our "model" is named Bancroft. Here he is wearing a lapel flower and a channing bow tie. We have good times dressing this guy up. It's always nice to be able to point to him when a visitor picks up a diamond point freestyle bow tie and says what does this one do?
If you've ever sewn, you know the glory that is the magnetic pin cushion - or pin collector I guess. It's not very cushy.
Yes its true, even our trash piles are a work of art.
And the floor after a series of Neck tie to Bow Tie conversions.
And finally, a pile of freshly pressed four toned gingham bow ties that so far have only been available to our Bow Tie of the Month Society.
