A Perfect Gift

This Christmas I received a wonderful gift – a Sailmaker’s palm.

A chance conversation last year with my ex-naval, boat yard Manager Father-in-law (or Grahame which he seems to prefer) lead to the revelation that such an item exists, and might indeed help to prevent blisters when hand stitching seat pads.

Either way, it’s a beautiful object even just to look at and an incredibly thoughtful gift.
