meet erika and livia...

it was a great afternoon in the house of fabric. we had two young helpers willing to give their saturday afternoon to make pillowcases in memory of kristen.

erika came directly from her basketball game. she has never been on a sewing machine before, so this was a new experience for her.

i loved seeing the girls interact as they worked. this is what sarah's sewcial lounge is all about.

livia learned that an iron can be as important as a sewing machine.
erika caught on quickly. notice her excellent hand placement as she is quiding the fabric along.

livia readies the facing by pinning it under for the final stitching. she likes how this will create a clean smooth finish to the pillowcase.

two beautiful cases completed with kate spain's verna. the machines are set up and ready for your use. if you can't make it on thursday feel free to drop in anytime this week. thank you marci and joellen for bringing your beautiful girls in today. see you again soon.

That is so fabulous!

The Sewcial Lounge is doing what it's clearly designed to do.

Well done Livia and Erika.

Yes, the iron is quite as important as the sewing machine.
