spring into sewing

knit top from sew camp

Last spring I took an online sewing class called the Backwoods Mama Spring Sew Camp. It is Spring again and for Spring and I am recommending it to all of you! Our sewing teacher Kathy interviewed me recently on her blog about the class, if you’d like to know more.

It is a totally self-paced class, so even home-bound mamas can participate! (Or those who don’t have time for a regular class for any other reason) My favorite part was learning to sew with knits on a regular sewing machine. All the patterns are easy to understand and there are videos and posts to explain everything. Then you can upload photos of your creations to the group flickr set. It’s fun to see what everyone else did.

The community feeling of doing something in common with others interested in the same thing is almost as good as if it were real life. And it sort of is real life, because although every participant was from some far corner of the globe, they are all real people. I highly recommend Backwoods Mama Spring Sew Camp, even if you live in town, like us!
