    I know what you’re thinking. “Did he sew six shirts or only five?” Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a Jones CS, the most powerful sewing machine in the world, and would sew your clothes clean up, you’ve got to ask yourself one question: “Do I feel lucky?” Well, do ya, punk?

    The gun run may have been withdrawn from the Royal Tournament because of budget cutbacks, but the signs were good that the Navy were taking the replacement speed stitching competition very seriously indeed….
