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…)

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…
