Kids know how to have fun

Fabric + sewing machines + kids = let the good times roll.

Ironing tubes for bag straps

There is really little that ismore fun that a studio full of kids working on a sewing project. The energy and comraderie is just amazing, and being around these young girls definitely makes you feel all is right with the world. They like to help each other. They want to share their knowledge.

Happy kids sewing

They are much more interested in the process than the outcome. They work hard, but don’t obsess over minor problems.

Did I mention they also giggle? A lot!

Turning tubes for bag straps

Do yourself a big favor, and pass along one of your gifts to a group of kids. You will gain much more in the process than they will. I guarantee it!

Happy sewing!

Tutorial: How to Create Perfect Edgestitching

Some things are just slower than molasses in February to accomplish.

Like learning to edit videos, for example. You would think that someone who is very technically astute would be able to pick up learning a new software program rather quickly, but it sure did not happen that way around here.

But enough griping, and on to the video! I hope you learn a thing or two about how to create beautiful edgestitching on your garments, and I would LOVE to hear from you soon. About anything at all.

Happy sewing!
