This past Sunday night, my sister-in-law and pal Ruth hosted our first ever sewing party!
The night included 10 gals, 5 sewing machines, lots of wine, good food, and tons of crafty goodness.
It was unbelievably fun and inspiring to share a few hours creating together. It was especially fun because this was the first time many of the gals had touched a sewing machine in years!
Kudos to Di for sticking it out during the bobbin threading frustration with her Singer. In the end, she walked away with a completed project. In fact, we had multiple tote bags and great progress on the baby’s nursery decorations!
The tote bags turned out amazing! The bags are reversible and have a professional looking finish. It’s a great first-time project. You can find the tutorial we used on the Skip to my Lou blog.
We are hosting another sewing party in March 2012 in Reno. Please comment on this blog or send me a message if you’d like to join us!
