so today i finally unraveled the mystery of the sewing machine. i tinkered with the old singer one i found in the basement, but all i did was damage.
the class was at the workroom, taught by karyn, who was really patient! the workroom is toronto's first sewing space by the hour. it's kinda like an internet cafe except with sewing machines.
the class i took today was the sewing essential course. we basically learned the parts of the machine, how to thread it, how to thread the bobbin, and of course how to work it. today's project was a throw pillow...and i am so proud of mine:
i signed up for another session on sunday, on how to make a simple doll, something that i could do as a christmas present. another one i'll be taking is easy alterations. i can't wait...i don't have to spend so much money on getting my pants hemmed!
