School Sewing Class

Some members of our guild volunteered to assist Mrs. Chris Fuller, math teacher at the Eagle River Elementary School, in guiding 10 students through an introduction to sewing class. The school provided the sewing machines and the girls started by learning the parts of a sewing machine, then sewing without thread on paper and progressing to using fabric. As the pictures reflect, the girls created a variety of items, including a nine-patch pillow, a tote bag, pillowcases with french seams, a fleece scarf with a slip through hole and a fabric bowl. The girls did great and enjoyed the class so much they wanted it to continue after the 9 week program ended! We hope some of the girls will display their work at our quilt show in 2024. Thanks to all the members that helped with this program.
