Sewing 101…

Have you ever tried to teach 28 women how to sew?

It is a challenge….we were so thankful that Claudia and Lilian had sewn before…

We started off by each of us taking 7 women step by step…how to thread a needle,

how to fill a bobbin…how not to press your foot down like a race car driver….

Some of them caught on quickly…..

…at least they had fun learning…

..even the kids wanted to know what all the excitement was about…

…this was an “ouch” moment..

we thought we might have to call the blood donor clinic…

the gals did not realize how sharp the stick pins were!

…The Prense Libra became a great paper to cut out the patterns…

 …can you tell these 3 are sisters…

…some afternoons we just don’t know where to put everyone…

…Philip and Manuel came in to see how things were going….

…Manuel, this is how you pin your fabric….

…I need a rest, all this sewing is very tiring!…

 …too much talk about fabric…I am out of here…

…my mom wants me to have a better life…

that is why she is making handbags….

…we love the style of bag, the colour and the gal….

 The purpose of life is not to be happy – but to matter,

to be productive, to be useful,

 to have it make some difference that you have lived at all.  ~Leo Rosten
