Teach Your Kids to Sew This Spring Break

What tolearn how to sew a straight seam with a sewing machine? maybe learn how to thread a sewing machine? Take a class with the No Non-cents Nanna in Colorado Srpings

Learn to sew a straight seam with a sewing machine then you can sew so many easy projects. I got this old machine at the ARC.

Do your kids know how to sew on a button or mend a ripped hem on your skirt? Can they thread a needle?

Perhaps you always wanted to learn to embroider a gift?

Well, stop putting  off learning this basic skill. Plan to learn to sew this Spring Break.

This post is edited. No Non-cents Nanna is no longer teaching local crafts and sewing classes at local retail shop. Sorry!
