sewing class

Today Joellen & I taught our first official teen sewing class! We had 2 brand new seamstresses & Joellen's daughter, who had sewn before. They all did a terrific job!

First, we spent some time getting familiar with the sewing machines & stitching shapes on paper. The girls got the hang of it very quickly & were anxious to make their pajama pants! So we helped them lay out their patterns....& then they all sat down to sew....We took a break for lunch & the girls finished up more than an hour early! All of them are anxious to try another project, perhaps a pillowcase? Of course we ended our day with a fashion show. We had Hot Air Balloons..... Music notes.....
and Turtles....

I think they did a wonderful job! Yay! Three more converts to the greatest hobby on earth!
