Mother/Child Workshop

7 May

We are now hosting mother/child workshops at Let’s Go Crafting’s studio.  The most recent one was so much fun!  They chose the Lined Book Bag for their project.

All fabrics cut and placed on our worktable.

We always prepare carefully for our workshops.  All tools and necessary items are placed within easy reach on our work table.

The students first pick their fabrics and then we get right down to pinning and sewing.  “Tux the distractor” usually gets into the mix asking for attention.

Sewing, sewing, sewing.

There are more than enough sewing machines for everyone to work at the same time.

WOW!

WOW!

Check out these bags!  I had some very fun designer fabrics on hand and decided to offer these for this project.  Don’t they look fabulous?!

They all turned out great!

Knitting Class

I’m always saying this, but I can’t believe how much fun we have in knitting class!  For class this week, this student brought an embroidery kit that she had at home and asked for help.  Well…of course!!  All forms of fiber arts are supported here in class.
