July was packed!

July was a busy month at You’re Maker!  August has been quiet as we took a break to get ready for school.  Hope you all are having a smooth transition into schedules and homework!

Here are a few (many) pictures from July.  As always, email me if you have a project or technique you would like to learn.

We had our first Tiny Makers class!  We talked about hand sewing safety and straight stitches.  They made these cute heart pillows.

The donuts required hand sewing for the big girls too!

I taught the advanced sewers at Brookwood’s Sewing Camp! We made animal pencil cases.

May

Hi all,

IMG_0011May is a crazy month for most of us.  For this reason, the May schedule is light.  In June, we will be back to business as usual.

Don’t forget to check out the Sewing Camp at Brookwood if your child wants to be immersed in sewing goodness for 4 days straight May 23-26.  It is open to everyone!  There is also a sewing camp in July.

Throw back because I have been busy.

IMG_8093A few weeks ago I had a class filled with awesome young women who were so enthusiastic to sew it almost made me cry with joy!

I have a bunch of friends that run and who tell me that a runner’s high is the best.  I have tried running…. I have never felt so good as I do every time I make something.  I would describe it as a high.  Creative highs. I digress.  I’m just happy when young people get that

These girls were awesome. Such a fun class.  We made snap wallets. You know….wallets with snaps.

IMG_8091

The class was fantastic until we hit a snap with the snaps.  For whatever reason….the snaps did not want to be installed.  It took hard work, and determination…problem solving…and a few broken snaps….but we finished every wallet!  It was a great lesson in…figuring it out! Make it work..as Tim Gunn would say.
