    Red face Gram's joy; teaching a GD to sew

    It's hot out, the AC is on and what better time but to teach an 8 yo GD to sew. 1. She's got the basics down--threading the machine, putting in the bobbin and sewing away. 2. Star sewing. 3. Christmas in July. 4. Then project hair scrunchie. Next we will move onto a little bag. After that she's going to serge a knit nightgown. She's all smiles!Name:  001rs.jpg

    How awesome! Never too early to get her started. She is on her way.

    Remember, people will see your quilts long after you are gone....NOT your housework!

    My grandmother helped me with my first sewing projects for 4-H. Sweet precious memories.
