I was delighted that 2 of my best friends, Sally and Carol, expressed an interest in learning to sew. We were able to get together last week and do our first lesson, a basic pillowcase. They chose 2 fabrics and learned many techniques: measuring and rotary cutting, seams and seam allowances, overcasting, and the basics of threading and using a sewing machine. I had fun, too! I made one that is the first item in my Christmas present stash (shhh- it's for hubby):
We all had fun sewing while the kids played together. Our next class will be a canvas tote bag. I am looking forward to it. If I can't find friends who sew, I'll have to teach them!!
