Sewing Classes

13 Jan

We are having a great time in sewing!  Each week our students work on their different projects – either starting something new, working on an ongoing project, or finishing up something.  What we have now added is weaving for those that are interested!

This student is a very accomplished sewer.  He has been sewing with Let’s Go Crafting for quite awhile now – he also sews at home.  What he really wanted to learn was weaving – so we brought out one of our student looms and got him set up to make a scarf.  Now he is weaving like a champ!  I can’t wait to show you the finished scarf – he has chosen such bright, fun yarn that I know this scarf is going to be lovely.

This student came to class this week with the idea to make an infinity scarf.  She thought it out, designed it and made it all in one class!  Beautiful!

One of the things that I LOVE about our classes is that they foster friendship and camaraderie.  The kids are all very supportive and helpful to each other – they share their thoughts, their ups and their downs.  The atmosphere created here is wonderful for their social and emotional growth.

Please also note the hat she is wearing.  She knit that hat in the round.  The fit is perfect and keeps her warm on these chilly mornings.

    Hi Lyric… I just ordered your DVD and am hoping I can get an ATC as well. I took a class from you at Quilt U. earlier this year, but didn’t get through it all. Looking forward to this DVD to refer to again and again.
