    On January 29th I will be helping at the Historical Museum in Topeka for Kansas Day. I will have Handcrank machines ( Singer 99s) to let the kids sew on. The kids make a simple bookmark of two bits of cloth that they sew together. 1,400 kids may come through in 7 hours. ( whew).It is really fun and the kids love it. This year schedules don't work for previous helpers. I could use one or two people for the day. or maybe a half day. If you have an interest please pm me.

    Thanks for reading this.

    That sounds tiring but so much fun. Love working with children and watching their eyes light up as they accomplish a new skill.

    Sounds like the "Maker Faire" in St. Paul, MN. Lots of people brings in projects for children to work on. My son brings in a penny punch. It makes a penny look like a gear. They try to do it with the short handle and even the strongest man can't do it. He adds a stick about two feet long to the handle and then the smallest kid can do it.
