Yeah I need to learn to sew... I think I'm going to swipe my mom's sewing machine and try it out. I thought of the perfect thing for an easy beginner's project...

Helmet (and chest box) bags!

good first step Jim....

gives you a feel for the machine....

I am still kinda waiting to see if the participants of the first sewing "class" actually make something before I schedule another...
and to be honest...right now is a really busy time with events and I am out doing restoration a LOT at this time of year.

well I made a santa bag for r2 to carry, and I did my tie flight suit and my ic coveralls. It wasnt without being a huge and daunting task and those were just simple pockets. I guess when it comes to the sewing machine I am just chicken. hehehehehe

Sewing is alot of trial and error. With a little bit of practice it gets easier. Just remember to keep your fingers out from under the needle.... Smile

u-bet-cha you will, cause Beth and I aren't doing all the sewing! Laughing

There will be plenty of straight seams that anyone who don't know how to sew can take a turn at working on. And I'm a master seam ripper, so any mistakes can fixed quickly. Laughing

oooooohhhh...
that sounds like an interesting project!

I think it might be time to host another
X-Wing extravaganza here in Illinois...

we have several MWG members interested in X-Wing and a little "get together" could help...
