TSTO Treehouse of Horrors XXIX Act 2 Prize Guide – Screaming Stitch and Hem

I’m not going to even begin to try to understand this prize…any more than I am going to try to understand Alissa’s methods for posting the Prize Posts well after we most likely get the prizes.  But, maybe it’s because she wants us to slow down and remember the prizes we won…rather than just blasting through each update veraciously.

Or…maybe it’s because these Prize posts are so boring. Let’s go with that.

(Edit from Alissa: For those wondering the answer to this…I post the prize posts in line with when they should be unlocked based on the calendar…or as close to the date as possible.  If you’ve already unlocked it by the time it posts you’re ahead of the game…which is  good thing.  But I don’t want those that haven’t unlocked it yet to feel like they are behind by posting them to far ahead of the calendar.  So I follow the calendar for posting dates on prize posts…)

But, speaking of memories…the Stitch and Hem brings back memories of “Stretch and Sew,” which had headquarters in Eugene, Oregon (which is a bobbin thread’s toss from the REAL Springfield!).

The Stitch and Hem may very well be modeled on this company, which was notorious for “making sewing fun again,” as well as their raucous, bawdy company parties, that made company parties fun again. Rumors. They hang around in a place as small as Eugene. But, I digress…

Let’s get on to the prize details…

Hold on!  I’m not done digressing yet!!

The reason I know so much about Stretch and Sew, is because our next-door-neighbor back in the 80s was their CFO.  And man…some of the stories he told! It was a much more “interesting” place to work than one would believe.  Let’s just say that the sewing ladies burned a bit hotter than their corporate exteriors would let on. But…their founder passed away in 2015, so many of the stories will be locked up in the sewing cabinet in the sky.

OK. Back to the game….and the Prize track.

Act 2, Prize 3- Screaming Stitch & Hem

Size: 3×5
Build Time:4hrs
Earns: $150, 13xp/8hrs
Conform-O-Meter: Consumerism +10
Can be Placed: On grass|pavement|boardwalk|pier|dirt
Arrangement Bonus: None
What Does It Do: Comes with a quest and earns income every 8hrs. Permanent 1hr task for Comic Book Guy (Commission a New Cosplay Outfit)

Questline: Screaming Stich & Hem
Auto starts when built
Comic Book Guy: Well, well, what to do we have here? A new tailor in town, and just in time. Usually I hand sew my cosplay outfits, but lately, the task has become unmanageable, much like my expanding waistline. Time for some professional help.
TASK: Make Comic Book Guy Commission a New Cosplay Outfit- 1hr, Earns $70, 17xp
Crazy Cat Lady: *hisses*
Comic Book Guy: Hmm. This is a very eccentric business. However, the price is right. A platter of fish heads and catnip. I’ll just leave my design schematics here on the counter. Please note the abdomical muscle enhancements.
Crazy Cat Lady: *purrs*

And that’s it. And I guess after reading the dialogue, it has nothing to do with “Stretch and Sew” except for maybe trying to create a garment large enough to cover CBG’s bulbous gut/butt.  Stretching would be good.

NEXT PRIZE- The Barking Good Bakery!

  1. “…any more than I am going to try to understand Alissa’s methods for posting the Prize Posts well after we most likely get the prizes” — Haha glad someone else noticed and glad we got an answer even if it should have been super obvious.


  2. Found the perfect character for this building…🎃


  3. These prize track buildings don’t fit in with any other buildings I own😣


    • I put this and the butchery with my Charmers Market from last year since the two buildings are similar in size to the magic shop. These two buildings remind me of the little western buildings we got a few years ago.


  4. I ♥️ my Screaming Stitch & Hem Building
    It’s got everything I could ask for in a Prize
    It doesn’t take up too much real estate
    I can put it on (almost) any surface
    It earns Simpson’s $ and XP
    There’s a permanent Character Task (Comic Book Guy (lol) 😂
    Goes swell with that Transylvania theme 🦇⚰️

  5. Patric fix the servers already ;).
    P.S. as for “screaming stitch and hem”. I have heard many a Grandmother, Mother’s and Aunts yell some jaw dropping comments in anger. While making mistakes knitting or sewing.

  6. The donut – at least the Bart screen give you false hope with a countdown that will just keep starting over and over, and over – “in this house we obey the laws of thermodynamics “

  7. Logged in and I have lost all my neighbors too! Most have been my neighbor for 6 years! You better fix this EA! 😬🙄


  8. This is my second try to post this so if it posts twice please forgive me … I got into the game but my entire bunch of friends were GONE!!! No more neighboreenos.


  9. Hi all all, my neighbors are missing anyone else have this glitch?


  10. Pirozhock_s_kotom

    I can log into the game, I just suddenly lost all the friends- about 20 other Springfields. The game also says, EA network is not available at this time.


  11. Can’t log in either. Must be slow or downed servers…


  12. “Cannot connect to server” since this (CET) morning too.


  13. I should unlock today


  14. Is anyone else having trouble getting into the game today? It won’t load for me


  15. Help! Screen comes up, donut spins but site does not open !!????
    Any suggestions?


  16. JANICE Wocelka OCHS

    Well, dang. My game will not open this morning. Loosing valuable tapping time! Ugh.


  17. Anyone having trouble getting the game to open? It worked fine this morning but for about 45 mins I’ve tried to open the game and the donut keeps going around and around continuously. I tried all the ways to get it to open, ie; hard shut down etc. but nothing is working.


  18. Somehow the game is not letting me in…
    not even to a login screen… just the donut spinning and message “not connected” from time to time…
    Somehow I feel they are patching my kids, to prevent them from earning extra currency, or their servers just crashed, I am not sure what to make out of it…
    anyone else out there?..


  19. Not opening today on both IPad and IPhone; donut just keeps spinning. 8:31am in Indianapolis. Anyone else experiencing this? Thanks…


  20. I wasnt sure where to comment, so I am putting it here. I tried getting on my game using my Samsung phone, the main screen loads, and that is it. I click the game and the doughnut in the corner just spins and spins. I also tried on my kindle fire and it is doing the same thing. Is anyone able to get into their Simpson game because I cant??


  21. Which is worse….The Bart screen of death or The perpetual spinning donut splash screen???? Lol.
