Tiny Sewer Sews Spectacularly!
This is the tiniest sewer to join our Sew Camps!
Our Sew Camp teacher, Barbara Beccio cleverly crafted a booster seat of sewing books so that she could reach her machine and and customized her foot pedal by propping it up on an empty iron box. Too cute!
Focus and fun pays off - she made this adorable skirt with a fun mushroom print! Don't you just love the yellow border? Very hip!

High Compliments For Crash Course Sewing Class
Dear Stonemountain Folks,
I attended a "crash course" last night and just wanted to pay the highest compliments to Nicole -- please pass along to her my comments.
The class was exceptionally well organized, went along at a good clip, covered the basics effectively. Among several students in the class of six or seven who had never even "touched" a sewing machine before, I was the one who had sewed all my own clothes -- 40 years ago! But Nicole addressed us all inclusively, introduced the basics, and broke down the intimidation factor quickly. Within the first half hour, she had already brought me to a new level; her clear explanations, demonstrations, and graphic illustrations were all excellent. Her explanations helped me understand problems I was having that I had never overcome way back when, and her approach to trouble-shooting was exceptionally helpful.
Pay attention to threading the machine, as well as to threading the bobbin! This will be my new mantra, and she has prepared me to take up sewing again, and to overcome my reticence with renewed interest and understanding.
Thank you! This class was the perfect re-introduction and Nicole was terrific in re-familiarizing me with the sewing machine! My only disappointment was having to leave "early," and feeling rushed at the very end. Again, thanks!
