Sewing Camp This Week

18 Jun

We are off to an amazing start to camp this week!!  Saying that we are a sewing camp is a little misleading as we have a few weavers and some jewelry makers thrown into the mix.  Everyone is having a great time as they get to choose exactly what the wish to make and what media they wish to use!!

We have stuffed toys…

We have jewelry making…

We have weaving…

We have pouches of all kinds.  Some with zippers (more than one!) and some with velcro…

We have headbands, scrunchies and bracelets…  AND  So much more!!

Our workspace is full of fun, collaboration and inspiration!!  Join us for a week of camp!

Fabulous Adult Classes

19 May

We have so much fun in our adult class!! This week we had a memory quilt finish!!

Yay!!! This student had not used a sewing machine before and in two months time she mastered the machine and made a fantastic quilt for her son!

Lots of other projects being worked on!

Cutting strips of fabric for another memory quilt. Using a rotary cutter is so much fun!

And hand sewing the hem on a dress. Many different things happening!! Join us for our next class! Contact us for availability.

Donation Workshop

12 May

Once a month Let’s Go Crafting hosts a donation workshop.  Donation Workshop days are free and students join us to make something that benefits a charitable organization.  This month we made cat beds for the animal shelter in Palo Alto.img_6153

This month’s team of fantastic students!!

 

We used old towels (most of them were donated by our community) to make the beds.

 

The kids cut the towels and sewed them and then stuffed the outside channel to make them more comfortable for the cats.

 

We had soooo much fun!!

 

Some of our students even made two beds!!  Thank you to everyone who donated and who came to sew!!!

Our week in review

1 Mar

This week has been great!  We worked on so many different projects and had so much fun!

We had lots of finishes!  Bean bags, pin cushions and a zippered heart pouch which actually has a zipper on the back as well!  Very creative!

There was knitting, weaving, cross stitch, sewing and crochet happening!  And…

something that really makes me happy.  These sewn projects were all made by one of my students all by herself at home!  How fantastic is that?!!
