I spent 2 hours today repairing damage to a cape. My Dad is in his 70s but in good health. He comes by my studio almost daily and we talk, drink coffee, argue, whatever. He's always wanting to help me out. Last deer season I was swamped and he wanted to help me cape out some deer and learn how to turn them.He has watched me cape and turn several times. I have bought a couple of beginner videos to show him how to turn the ears, split lips, etc. He has the ear turning down pretty pat. The rest leaves a lot to be desired. Today when I got a cape out to rehydrate it, I thought what the heck is this? Then I realized it was a cape he had decided to turn and split. Oh well, it just took a couple of hours to rebuild the front corners of each eye and sew up the lips. He has good intentions but it looks like I'm going to have to find him something else around the shop to do. I enjoy his company and know the day will come that I'll wish he was still here so he could hack up a cape. Anybody else get any unwanted or unneeded help around the shop?
