upSewn Beginnings

sew…i’m teaching!  (don’t get super annoyed at the spelling thing…promise not to over do it!)  the fifth class “first stitches” class was today and i am thru.the.moon with the positive response both from participants and parents! currently, i am holding classes downstairs at the Howard Miller Library. it’s a great spot for parents to drop off their kiddos and maybe, just maybe head to a quiet spot to read. or if it were me, scour every decor, style, and sewing mag like my life depended on it!

just look how much fun this beginner class has been…38 small bags have been sewn so far!
