A current FFWD cover illo. showing a typically sordid scene common to Cowtown: crafters! And here they are, drinking nameless hi-balls, listening to "Emasculation Blues" by Big Ugly Flo McNeil (file under "Party Sax"), laughing, chatting, being sociable yet eschewing the typical girls' night out... *crafting*.
By day, you'd probably never know them from the innocent biddy across from you on the bus ride home. By night however, the (homemade) oven mitts come off, corks are popped, the sewing boxes and knitting baskets are revealed...
Who knows? Maybe you've got them in your town... or yours... OR YOURS!!!
