Sewing Night - Feb 13, 2013

This week at sewing night we continued with the epic numbers.  With the addition of Dad, who joined us for a while last week, and Benita's mom, Irene, we had 8 people!

Dad has over 40 years of upholstery experience, so most of this sewing stuff makes perfect sense to him.  He was helping coach for most of the night.  I was disappointed that I didn't manage to get a picture of him holding up this ruffly red satin skirt he was helping Nadine with.  It was too cute.  :P
Dad, Benita (photo bombing, again!), and Nadine

 Emily and her mom made some stuffed hearts to give to her teachers for Valentine's Day.
 Dad was coaxed into breaking out his guitar and playing the songs he learned for his recent role as Pecos Bill in a local play.
Notice on the table: Nail polish, Sewing junk, Snacks.  We know how to have a good time!
 The camaraderie and mentoring and sharing and learning continued.  Benita sewed her very first elastic waist!
 I love these busy nights.  They are so much fun!  Sometimes we don't get a lot of sewing done, but I'm starting to notice that that's not the most important part of Sewing Night!
