Yes, at my age I am still taking classes. Learning more. Trying out new things. Not sure why sometimes we think that learning STOPS after formal education… but if you look, there are classes offered all around you in stores and community colleges and online!
Today’s challenge: Sewing 101.
Spotting a class schedule flyer at my local JoAnn Fabric store one day, I took it home with me. Hmmm… interesting.
Something CLICKED while reading the “Sewing 101” class summary. So I signed up. Bought the supplies, got to the store on an early Saturday morning and started the learning!
“Sewing 101” taught how to get started with a sewing machine – and I have to say that I feel pretty cool throwing down terms like “seam allowance” or “pedal foot” with confidence. What?… these are pretty common words, y’all.
My fabulous husband said these magic words; “Get what you need to start this FOR REAL…” so I loaded up my cart with the sewing essentials!
After spending HOURS (and HOURS!) at JoAnns for the class, then finding necessary materials… I finally arrived home and DOVE right into doing MORE sewing!
I couldn’t stop.
Pinterest = AMAZING site for patterns, tips and tricks. Yep, created a new board, “SEW Fabulous” and am loading it with inspiration!
What do you think of my first products? A finished scarf (with fringe!) for my supportive husband, a cute coin purse (to practice doing lining and fleece interfacing), a fabric tray and an infinity scarf for myself.
