Sewing marathon in the barn

Again the barn is transformed. This time into a sewing room.
Several women of the church wanted to learn how to sew the eight gore skirts that Deborah had been making so on Saturday Feb. 17 ten women came armed with their sewing machines, surgers, irons and ironing boards. It was a profitable day of learning, fellowship and having lunch and afternoon tea together. They stayed until the skirts were finished.

Sunday, most of the women wore their skirts.

The swinging sewing team.

Claudia and I made out skirts a week before the women came to learn and sew.

Claudia even made her doll has a new skirt.

Love using the surger. Surely does solve many sewing problems.

Claudia was a few steps ahead of me in the sewing sequence so she taught me how to put the skirt together and best of all how to put in a very professional looking zipper. She is a really good teacher.
