Fabrics& Fibers Center Opens!

Classes were introduced to the Weaving/Fabrics/fibers Center this week. A group weaving project has been started and several individual projects have been launched. One student learned to sew for the very first time so that he could construct a pillow. He learned about pinning the fabric in place and threading a needle. He learned two different stiches and chose the one he thoght would work the best. He asked to bring it home to continue work, and showed up the next day telling me it was all ready to be stuffed. He went off with a bag of pollyfil with a decision to make: turn the pillow shape inside out to hide the stiching, or leave it as is to show the stiching off.
