Sew Fun Day Two

This is the calm before the chaos on morning number two. And ten in the morning stitchers start sewing, and they don’t stop until we turn the power off some time between nine and ten at night.

The second day had fewer students and the students present were mostly already moving in the directions they wanted to go. This made for a much calmer day of stitching.

Mark is on to his next project--taking his plaid shirts from the last thirty years and making them into a quilt masterpiece. You will have to wait until the next post to see this amazing creation.

Sewers of all skill levels produced all kinds of beautiful and functional items.

Here is a close up of the front of the tote. We used an other tote to create the pattern. Kristin did all the surface design.

    Maria–so telling that you labeled that slightly untidy workspace as “massive chaos.” I shall have to give you a tour of my sewing space someday…

  2. Loved visiting your blog today. I am here from the Off the wall gang. I’ve often wished I could buy an old building in a downtown area and turn it into a massive studio and store combination. Your posting reminded me of that. Old store fronts had lots of glass to let the light shine in!
    I hope to make it back to see what the fella makes with his shirts. 🙂
