July 2014 sewing week

Sure wish I could get a photo of all my students and their recent projects. But, sadly that seems impossible with all the comings and goings of the 32 students who participated in the ten sewing classes during July. The room was filled with upwards of 15 students at any given time and of course that doesn't include the kids that come along with  Mom, Grandma, Aunt, neighbor... you get the idea. The classes that precede the beginning of the new school year focus on creating backpacks, book bags, and pencil cases. One of my students shared how her son had requested a new bag this year, not because the one that she made FOUR YEARS AGO was no longer usable, but, because he wanted a new color. The bags just don't seem to wear out because we use upholstery fabric.
