Date set:
March 21st....
time still open...but probably around 10:00 AM..
If you have a sewing machine...plan on bringing it....
but in advance....set up the machine...and see if it works....lol..
no sense hauling a machine that does not work...

Let me preface this by saying that I am no rocket scientist when it comes to sewing either...I am self taught and still make my share of mistakes...
so this "class" will be for the person who has never sewn...

I am limiting the size of this first workshop to only 4
2 Rebel
2 Imperial

because too many people just provides too many distractions....

Things I intend to cover are the basics of:

Patterns and selection/adaptation
fabrics and fibers
terminology
basic tools and needs
working with a machine

Time permitting we can also head to Joanne's Fabrics to take a look at some of the vast array of fabrics and "things"....

I'm not happy about it but I'm going to have to cancel, I'm going to have to work all weekend as we're upgrading our file management system and server which will very likely take all weekend and this is the only weekend we can do it. Mad

Hopefully you can get that sewing machine to work ....that would help a lot...

and...
if you need a pattern....chances are I got one you can borrow...

and if you run into trouble with a project...I am always there to help....

Where I don't like sewing...I find an odd satisfaction in at least knowing how to do it....
it is liberating to know that if you really want to do something...
and are prepared to fail a few times...
eventually you can do just about anything...
