They Said It
"Even if you just have glass of red, it's just not worth the risk to drive. Unless you want to meet strange men in a small confined space …. Gives new meaning to Pressing and Fusing …… sorry but I am trying to humour myself while my partner spends all the money." - Sew Solutions member Rajesh Raghunandan on a function they will hold to mark the opening of their new premises in Pinetown.
"I had never even heard of this store, but I checked with my wife and daughter, and they say it has closed down. You have to ask the women about clothing shops...unless of course you ask someone like Granville." - ISTT head and Grahamstown resident Dr Clive Jackson-Moss, who I asked to check the fate of Grahamstown retailer Elixir. 'Granville' refers to DyStar leather technician Granville Steyn, famed throughout the southern African leather industry for his dress sense.
"Yes, I do leather handbags, combining leather and canvas for 'man bags' and leather logos on caps. My main income is architecture (last 20+ years), but I want to start focusing on some fabrication such as shoes or wherever God leads me next." - Crafter Henri Nel.
