A couple of weeks ago I had a sewing day with my niece. I had given her my old (but not that old) sewing machine for Christmas along with a sewing basket full of supplies and fabric. We finally go the chance to use it. I had given her 2 sewing books one of which was My First Sewing Machine Book by Ryland Peters & Small. She picked out what she wanted to create out of the book and choose Lavender bags which she wanted to sell to get donations for Relay for Life.
She picked out her fabrics. I cut the fabric for her with the rotary cutter and she did the sewing. She also cut the edges on her own after sewing them.
We also made a trip that day to one of your local quilt shops to meet Marianne Fons of Fon’s and Porter Love and Quilting. We had a great day.

Have a blessed day!
