A piece a Week – The library workshop and a sock cat!

This week was totally taken over by the preparation of the workshop for the Mountain View Library. We had 15 people show up for the event and 4 machines and a serger & 2 volunteers and myself to teach the workshop. The workshop was a patchwork tote using FabMo fabric interior design 8″ and 12″ squares. Everyone was really enthusiastic about the project and wanted to completed their tote! For a challenge to the sewers in the class I added make a french seam on either side seam as a featured technique. I made a couple of videos for those who had to finish the project at home – part 1 https://vimeo.com/134362917 & part 2 https://vimeo.com/134363222. I did have a student who was super keen to finish so here is the completed bag by one happy maker!

Time out on the weekend was spent heading to San Francisco to finally see the Circus Bella show. Missy did a circus camp at the beginning of the summer and the teachers were from Circus Bella and she really loved it. The show was part of a series of free shows and is perfect for a day out to the city. This was at Mission Bay just across from the Caltrain being super easy to get to!

Post show the music was a bit loud so Missy hid somewhere for a while to get some peace and quiet!

This easy craft was created this week with the kids orphan socks and we found this craft in an old magazine and it is a fabulous idea for any old socks. This is Stripey the sock kitty!
