Start Somewhere

I am a big fan of encouraging folks to learn to sew. Wouldn't you know I'd find some video instructions online. To those of you who don't sew, give it a try (you know someone you know has a machine in the closet sitting unused). You will amaze yourself and your friends. Besides what's the worst that could happen??

This vid may help.

Lynnelle and I are taking a jewelry making class at Detroit's iconic and historic Pewabic Pottery. We made a bunch of stuff last night Lynn made buttons and I made pendants. I'm hoping they turn out well. I'll post more later. In the meantime, I went to New York last week and got a slew of new knits. I'm getting them photographed now and they should be up on the store site by Monday.

That lady in the vid looks like she doesn't sew much. She will have to make a FBA on a commericial pattern, and she is using the wrong kind of scissors to cut a pattern. LOL

I know, it's a hilarious vid but I figure that sort of "devil-may-care" tactic is good too. I think people get too scared of sewing to sew and that lady sure isn't (although she does get a little bemused).

I'm looking forward to seeing what treasures you'll be posting! I've put a huge dent in my knit stash over the past month (including a bunch of things I haven't photographed or reviewed yet), so I have a good excuse to go shopping. ;)
