Wow, after several years ive decided to try and resurrect this little blog of mine. I recently told a friend I missed having a place to write. Then out of nowhere a blog "challenge" if you will came about on a public group im in. So here I am and I'm going to try and keep this thing going. Bare with me as I make changes and update content. Feel free to sift through my old posts, you just might learn something new about me....

Fabric Tuesday: Singer Party

I hosted a Singer sewing party this weekend, it was through Houseparty, and was a blast.  I was supposed to do these little roll up bags, like for makeup brushes, but that wasn't something that I found practical for myself or my guests, so we made dishtowels, which will be much more useful!

 I had little gift bags for everyone with patterns, threads, a little sewing pouch, a couple towels and fabric and coupons good for Martha Stewart craft supplies and Joanne's.

 The little sewing machine setup area.

 Here I was playing "instructor" and showing some of the features of the machine.  I showed off some of the stiches, explained how to use the self threader on the machine, the drop in bobbin feature and all of the wonderful feet and accesories the machine came with.

 I taught everyone how to make ruffles and how to make yo yo's - which everyone thought was easy and LOVED.

 Tiffany's completed towel.  She used not only the ruffle but the yo yo too!

This was my quick little sample towel.  Everyone had fun being crafty, we spent 3 hours sewing and chatting.  We also all enjoyed some of my mom's homemade angel food cake and fresh strawberry sauce.  Yum!  What a neat little girls day, and a perfect way to spend time on a Saturday.

Legal stuff:  Houseparty and Singer supplied me with a sample sewing machine for the party and a free box of goodies from Joanne's and Singer to share with my guests.  My opnions are my own and I will be purchasing the machine because I loved it soo very much!
