Teaching at Farmhouse Fabrics

I always bring little garments I have made with me for show and tell.
I have been busy this spring with classes.

I enjoyed a nice Teaching Experience at Farmhouse Fabrics recently.

I was teaching a Construction/Technique class that featured a Daygown.

The Daygown had "under tucks" which is an old fashioned way to add fabric to a garment without bulk to the design.  I will be showing this technique again for the Saga Retreat in  PA next month.

We also made my Fancy St. Louis Snail Shirring Bonnet using matching fabric. This bonnet gave us the chance to learn and practice our embroidery.

I will be teaching this Bonnet for the Saga National Convention this fall in Frisco, Texas.

One student actually finished her bonnet!

I love three day classes.  It really gives you time to learn and stitch the techniques.

Happy Sewing Ladies!!
You would love to take a class at Sally's Farmhouse Fabrics.  The classroom is bright which makes sewing much more pleasant and easier to see your fine stitching too!

We were fed great meals at lunchtime.
A person needs to be nourished to find sewing energy!

More about my fun at Farmhouse next post....

until then....bye!

Oh, I am so glad that I have no grandbabies yet, as I need time to find the time and peace and quiet to make a lovely layette and Christening gown. (No hurry, my eldest is 21, and still in school.)
My dream would be to have the time and money to fly down your way to attend one of your classes. But in the meantime, I follow your blog and drink in every post.
Happy Easter!
