"WE are sewing MACHINES"

Had a new crop of girls in this week and after watching their older sister sew with me all summer they went at their projects with gusto.
They even got to make a simple project on the sewing machine. By cutting a printed cloth napkin in half they only had to top stitch the top edge and sew the sides together. Add straps and viola! Tote bag!
Want a intro to sewing class for 6-8tr olds in Albany? Let me know!
