Before I tell you about my new class, a wee update on Dad’s Civil War Quilt.
My gorilla arms recovered enough today to get the quilting finished & the binding made.
The binding has been sewn onto the front, and I can now enjoy my favourite stage – hand sewing the binding down onto the back!
Tonight we are looking around my youngest daughter’s prospective new school for September, so not sure if I’ll get much more sewing done.  But hopefully I’ll have a finished quilt to reveal by the end of the week.
And now some news for my local readers!
Due to increasing interest from folks wanting to learn how to sew, I’m starting a new class after Easter.
‘Machine Sewing For Beginners’  
This a 6 week introductory course, aimed at anyone who wants to learn how to understand and use a sewing machine, or become reaquainted with some long lost sewing skills!  
Here are the sorts of topics we’ll be looking at:
* How to thread your machine & fill the bobbin
* Understanding the buttons and dials
* Understanding, measuring and cutting fabric
* Sewing & ironing 1/4″ seams
* Essential equipment
* Making a simple cushion

If you know of anyone who might be interested in this course please pass on these details, or email me to put your name down (places are limited).
Have a great Wednesday everyone!
