Fatty Farm Field Report
The Becker Sewing Bag Contest
This week we award the bag to the best video. Tupper Becker reviewed or entries and chose – Jeff Price, Jeff wins one of our Becker Sewing and Design 40 Below Bags. Congrats, Jeff!
It was a local spin around the walled town of Conwy which is just a couple of miles from home. The castle and town walls in the video date back to the 1280’s after being built by the English king to show his power within Wales. Google it, there’s some very interesting history there…..
You may have noticed I’m wearing the Yeti Von Evil shirt, fits great, looks better 🙂
