I watched a show on walmart on the business channel once. They showed a group of fabric employees, asked them to hold up their thumbs, and said if everyone was off that much in the group on one cut it would be a few yards. It was a big group of people. They said some huge amount that it would come out per year, and said to be exact.
I guess it feeds into their business model of squeezing every penny out of everything.
One a side note I am finding a lot of taffeta in the $1 bins. Might be worth considering. I used the thicker stuff with mixed results. It's good test material if anything else.
Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?
