Since 9/11, the only thing I've had taken away from me at an
airport is my small hotel-provided sewing kit :)  Now I can't
sew on a button after the cleaners trash one.

And the spring I spent sewing prom dresses (and the mandatory
fitting session!!!) well paid for all the comments I got from
those that were not understanding. Honestly, most of my buddies
were just jealous that they hadn't thought of the same thing.
How else could I get to see 15 teenage girls in their undies?
Legally. Lots of tittering and blushing, but we struggled through
it all. And I had great stories to tell.
