I've been teaching sewing classes offered through our community college for a year. I decided to teach the classes from my home studio because that way, students who didn't have any equipment could try out sewing using my sewing machines.
For the first year, we used the packing area from SewBaby as the classroom, so it was filled with all kinds of boxes, and mailing stuff. Before class, Shirley and I would clear the table tops of packing supplies, and move the sewing machines in place. Here are the BEFORE shots:
A few sheets of drywall, a few gallons of paint, some new tables and chairs, and voila! Well, not really that easy. The whole process took about a month, my husband and my assistant, Shirley, deserve a lot of the credit for making my vision come true. Here are the AFTER shots:

I have a crush on Hot Patterns. I don't know why it has taken me so long to try them! They are celebrating their 7th anniversary. I've tried three of their patterns now, and each one has fit me perfectly with ZERO ALTERATIONS!
It's like we were made for each other. Love...
