I love sewing
My granddaughter came to spend a few weeks with�me, and I decided to teach her to sew.� After I had gone through a lengthy explanation of how to thread the machine, she stepped back,�put her hands on her hips, and said in disbelief, "You�mean you can do all that, but you can't play my Game Boy?"�

~Author Unknown~


Thanksgiving is fast approching and the busy holiday season in almost here.� This month I have�a Pilgrim boys pattern availble, it's adorable and easy, with a hat, collar, and cuffs.� Any little Pilgrim�boy will be a hit at his�Thanksgiving feast.��If you missed the Pilgrim girls outfit in our last newsletter, you can check it out here >>>>>Fall Sewing Ideas

With the seasons changing it gives us a time to look back over�our year and reflect on the things that we are thankful for, as well as reminding us to begin making plans for the Christmas holidays.� So get out your machine, go through your patterns, and make a list!��

Have a great, sew-fun fall!��� ~ JoAnn��
