School of Sewing Provides Holiday Instruction

jill here...What a pleasure to sew a holiday gift from a quilter friend's new book School of Sewing.  Shea Henderson has authored a great resource of 12 beginner projects: "Learn It, Teach It, Sew Together".  Not only projects, the book is filled with sewing instructions for those who are beginners to the sewing world. And a good review for those who have sewn a long time!  It's skill builder lessons with the final project sewing a half square triangle quilt.  I will be gifting a couple of the books for a grandmother/granddaughter team and one for my daughter-in-law.

The rufflled wristlet key fob, designed by Alex Ledgerwood, had just the right attributes of challenge and panche for our annual get together. This little key ring is bright enough to be spied inside the purse... without settling to the bottom!

Here's a visual of the  book displayed with all the different fabric versions  Each guest chose their own combinations.

Marianne was our chef, serving another wonderful meal.

Marny and Jane created laughter while they gathered.

Laura proudly displayed her finished key ring.

Sue and Gale had time for conversation while they sewed.

Seven little rings all in a row.

Life gets busy so it's really fun to share an annual holiday project.  We made a space to gather and celebrate friendship.

'till next Tuesday...
