    I can see a number of you have taken my query as an opportunity for a bit of flirting. And why not. Unexpected, though!!!!!
    Sorry Tiger.

    I'm all for flirting!!!!!!!!! Just always surprised at what sparks it off. Was on another forum where they were so boring I actually started a thread on flirting. A few folks joined in but others were really po-faced. Don't go on there much.

    Still struggling with that blasted tie though..........

    If you have a digital camera, Tigerlily, you could take an in-focus close-up photo of the problem and attach it here. You might have to do it on a windowledge to get it lit well.

    And you can put some kind of inuendo-laden message to Spot while you're at it.

    So anyway, it sounds like there's an interesting story behind this tie dilemma.

    That was the first time in a thousand posts that innuendo had not crossed my mind! How could you be so mean?

    I'm not really mean; I'm just average ... median, if you will.

    I've asked sewing friend to advise as well. She says why doesn't my husband just go to Marks & Spencer?

    Might wll have a go at putting the instructions on camera and explaining why it doesn't seem to work.

    I've always preferred the personal touch. The Marks & Spencer might technically look better, but it wouldn't be better.

    Now that is an excellent idea...you could get one for next to nothing in a charity shop....

    Hi,

    I'm looking for people in the UK who might be hand-slippers - people who have worked in the Tie trade before and may also have worked from home.

    Does anyone have any ideas how I might go about tracking these people down?

    Thanks!
