      Found the 4 inch hair ties by Revlon at Wally World work great to manage the upper sleeve on a camo jacket.

      Hitting a sleeve with a bowstring ……………. really bad; and it’s suprising how often one sees it happen at shoots, and usually the shooter is unaware of it.

      Glad you found something you like. Thanks for sharing. Krista Holbrook did a Tip of the Week for us on how to make your own arm bands, which allows you to make them in different sizes. Just a thought…

      Sewing used to be a bridge too far for me.  I kept my wife’s ancient sewing machine working.  I knew all it’s belts, pulley’s and levers by heart.  But I never did work up the nerve to learn to use it.  It had so many quirks.

      Then I bought my wife and daughter new machines for Xmas a few years ago.  Yea, I was slick.  I did the research, got each of them to tell me what they really thought was important, and implied that I was getting a machine for the other.  Come Xmas morning, I was tops,  for a few minutes anyway…

      The new machines are SO much better than the old ones.  Even an old dog like me can figure them out.  They work well, are so quiet, and don’t get buggered up.  I use the machine more than my wife does.

      Sewing up some arm bands would never have happened before the new machine.

      If you’ve got a hankering to improve your traditional skills, I surely do recommend getting a sewing machine and giving it a whirl.  You can get a nice machine now for less than 200 bucks.  Ours were made by Brother, and they have been great.

      A few bow socks, a shooting glove or two, some armbands, and the machine has paid for itself.

      When I got a new sewing machine (many moons ago) T.J. used the motor from the old one to make a cresting machine. He still uses it.
