Summer Sewing Days

alto sewing machine

I have my last sewing class with my younger students tomorrow.  It is so exciting to see new young people being creative and their interest in sewing.  We have great discussions, I think they all relax when their hands are busy and the thoughts and words just flow.  We have talked a lot about sewing machines and how they work, in my research I found this unique machine. I love when design is always a part of function.

The Alto machne is made for non/beginner sewers.  Easy threading, and the speed is controlled by your hands moving on the fabrics-no foot pedal.  This could be great for students.

Seeing Spots

Seeing spots-painting dots, many silk scarf orders around here, this design has been a favorite this this spring/summer.  I can see the end coming with this last 5 months of orders.  Looking forward to new ideas and designs and I hope to have some samples and orders available for family and friends this summer.
