Seeing your supervisor in a white ruffled shirt, pink tie, and a pearl neck tag 
(and knowing you’re going to keep this pic forever):
Yeah…you better believe it!!!!!!
priceless!!!!
  
now the back story: 
The joke  (we've got a history of  'em at MMF) was on Ben Rubin (left) our international sales manager.  I wish I had a picture of his face when  Michael Steiner (right) the Michael of Michael Miller, knocked on his door, handed him the shirt  and said "see ya downstairs for breakfast." 
I hear the response was total silence.
  Then, "This has gone too far!  My customers will never take me seriously!"
well.. serious or not they pulled it off...

and they weren't the only ones; 
check out that ruffle skirt Christine's wearing.

Why are coops and other stores allowed to sell at 1/2 price and nothing is being done about theses?

Hi I was looking at your tutorials and I like them the very best that I've seen soo far I was wondering if you could answer a few questions for me.
1. Do you have a pattern for a chef coat and hat by chance?
2.Do you have a pattern for litttle baby shoes that tie?
3.Do you know if you can wash the vinyl splat mat in the washer?

Thank you very much for your great tutorials!
