Fresh Sewing Day - June

Blogging late in the day again!

I had another all day workshop today - Getting to know your sewing machine!

10 lovely ladies with 10 completely different sewing machines. There were 3 Frister-Rossman, but all from different decades so all different. The oldest machine was 18 years old and the newest was 2 months!

Everyone left having made a small zippered purse and a button hole clutch, plus gained an insight into how their machine works and how to deal with problems that might arise!

Great fun and incredibly satisfying to help people overcome their fears and understand how to use their sewing machines!

May dashed by in a whirlwind of teaching - workshops, evening classes and open days - and sewing quilts!

There has been Triangle Madness!

Some present making and free motion fun!

A bit of baby sitting that resulted in a new FMQ pattern!

Oh and dress making for Outstanding Tutor Awards!

So May was pretty busy... wonder what June will hold!

Linking up with Lily's Quilts and Fresh Sewing Day:
