Classes during a pandemic are surely interesting, to say the least. However, we have been having fun at Needle, Ink, and Thread! Students have been amazing following all the restrictions and guidelines that I have to follow to be open and keep everyone safe.
I have been busy teaching a new generation to sew! It seems that this pandemic has reenergized the sewing industry due to mask making and well having a lot of time to try new things. The strangest part is the sewing machine shortage!
I can’t believe how hard it is for people to find and purchase a new machine. All the sites seem to be sold out as well as the dealer sites! Great time to sell a machine if you are not planning on using it.
I wanted to share some photos of classes from August. My fantastic students have been creating the most amazing projects, and I have to brag on them a bit. Seriously, some are brand new to sewing, and man, can they pull a straight line! I plan on posting monthly with a gallery of photos from classes.
I want everyone to see how easy it is to sew if you invest a little time and energy! Practice makes better is what I always say.
The classes have been in full force with sewing and students, covid19 has renewed the way people look at those that sew, as a skill and something worthwhile. It seems like the pandemic has put sewing under the lens of a useful skill that people should be taught (even if just the basics) so they can be self-sufficient!
