Week 2 of Summer Camp - and - next week July 4th

The second week of summer camp was as much fun as the first week. Several projects were made. Some very challenging. Shorts with fly zippers, pants and tops for sleepwear, pillows, skirts, dresses.

We had a couple of girls from the first week join us for another week. They have come so far in just a couple weeks of sewing. From not knowing how to use a machine at all to cutting and making clothing. I have to say, I was very impressed with these new sewers.

The passion has been created. There is nothing these girls couldn't make with a little help. In the years to come they will be making all kinds of things with the talent they have.

Today is another Open Sewing Friday. Tomorrow I still have seats available to the machine class. Next week is a little slow with July 4th being on Wednesday. I believe a lot of people are taking their vacations. AND a heads up. I'll be on vacation starting next weekend from July 7th to the 14th.

Enjoy your moments, make them "sew" much fun,

  3. Hi Mara,
    You did great sewing your shorts. It really wasn't an easy project.

    What kind of bag did you make for her? It's great fun making things for other people and giving them as gifts. I do it all the time. They love what you make them. It means more than a store bought gift.

    I so forgot to forward your addie to her so you can keep in touch. I'll do it now.
