First Lesson

I took my first official sewing lesson last night. The two other women who were supposed to take the class with me weren't able to make it so I had lesson one by myself.

We went over everything about the machine and the items in the tool kit such as the seam ripper, fabric pencil, and seam gauge. Then I did some lines on paper sans thread. Straight lines, boxes, slow curves, sharper curves and some circles. Keeping my machine going evenly will come in time but I did great on the lines, if I do say so myself.

Because the other women were out last night, they're going to do a make-up class next Monday and I'll take the week off then we'll get back together for week two the following Monday. In the mean time, I have some more lines to pierce here at home.

I'm on the road to quilting!
