I've taken sewing lessons before. I've sewn a few projects. But when Stitch started offering beginning sewing classes this month, I had to sign up. For one, my sister - who has never sewn before - signed up and I wanted to support her. And two - I just love the store, the friendly owners, and their merchandise.
Our project was a pillow case using the French seam method. When I first went in to sign up, Jack was with me, and he made a bee line for the fabric with cars on it. He kept pointing at it and saying "vroom! vroom!" and I knew what had to be done. That pillow case was to be his. It was decided.
Even though this fabric wouldn't have been MY first choice (the stuff Stitch has is amazing!), I couldn't be more pleased with the end product. And I know Jack is going to appreciate it when he comes home from majka & dido's house.
I met some lovely ladies and got to do something fun with my little sister, creating something for my baby boy. And I also learned something new. All in all, a wonderful event. I've already signed up for a couple more classes coming up.
