Once upon a time, many, many years ago my Mom taught me to sew.
I learned sitting upon her knee on a Singer 401. It's one of the best machines ever made.
I sewed for fun , I sew for 4-H, I sewed for college, I sewed for cleaners, customers, costumers and kids!

I recently was asked to teach sewing.
It was the right time and for the right person, so I said, "Yes".
I envisioned class to be like this.
Little hands busily and NEATLY stitching away.
A place for everything and everything in its place.
Here's what it was like!
Crazy wild designing going on!
We made fabric necklaces, purses, aprons, dolls and brooches.
The place was a mess. We had to dig through fabric piles to find the scissors at the end of each class. Lots of fun, lots on energy and now a nap!
So here we are...Easter week with 15, 6 to 12 year olds for "Fashion Camp"
