I jumped at the opportunity to help actually make one of our products yesterday. I was asked to cut a pile of panels for wristlets. I was happy to actually be part of the manufacturing process and jumped up with all my enthusiasm. I thought to myself, "Cutting straight lines, how hard can it be?"
MaryAnn guided me through the process and laughed at me or with me as I asked her all the ridiculous questions that came to mind, including "How will I know when I get to 100? How close do I need to get to the line? Should I iron these?"
It took me quite a while to get through my pile of cutting. My conclusion is that it is hard to cut on the line! The sail material is a little slippery & I was rushing to keep pace. I think I am better at the computer stuff than the physical stuff. At least now I can cross sail cutting and splicing (see my previous blog) off my list. Maybe I will be good at sewing?
