I want to thank everyone who submitted their T-shirts for the Aug. 6 Extra section.
I loved seeing all the different types of shirts. I’d like to highlight two more entries I received.
Joyce Carter of Vinton made a quilt of her T-shirts she collected over the years. She said she got the T-shirts after she retired from American Electric Power with her husband Winston Carter in 1999.
“After there was a buyout we decided to take it,” Carter said. “We then just decided to travel and just go see things.”
Carter said Cathie Ostermann, owner of Katie Bug Quilting in Daleville, made the quilt. Carter added she wanted to show what Katie Bug Quilting can do because there are other ways to display T-shirts.
Then there’s Lewis Stump, from Roanoke, who has a shirt with a built-in amplifier. He said he got it from ThinkGeek.com.
The shirt can play guitar notes by pressing any of the squares and strumming with the magnet pick that comes with it, Stump said. “It also has a amp that comes with it and the volume goes to 11.”
Stump said the amp can be also be plugged into a bigger sound system.
