I started to pick up the papers in the sewing room, but got
side-tracked by a Gohn Bros. catalog.  They gots work denim!!  The
information isn't of immediate use, because I still have enough of the
superb herringbone the worn-out pants I'm wearing were made of to make
two more pairs of jeans.

I got my copy of the catalog when I bought a pair of socks, but they
have a PDF of it on their website at gohnbrothers.com.  

I hadn't been looking at the fabrics carefully, because I ASSumed that
everything was either quilting cotton or perma-press -- six bolts on a
whole wall of fabric don't jump out at you.

And when I counted the weights of cotton denim, I noticed that they
have black polyester double-knit to make my slippers from.  But I
won't be up Middlebury way until May, when Bonneyville Mill opens for
the summer.

Wow!  I love places like that.  Wish we had places like that in this  
country.  Thanks for the mention - I've done a thorough exploration of  
their site and many other sites online that mention them.
