June 8, 2013, class thinned out a little bit - less people showed up. I really don't blame them. All we are doing is drill and kill assignments. If are super new to sewing I could see how this could be a turn off. I thankfully know a little something about sewing, so these drill and kill assignments are more like tests of my ability to be accurate. It tests my patience too, and I have re-named the class "The Zen of Sewing." The teacher Rucht is getting more strict. Even though it is a noncredit class, she checks the homework and expects that you give it your all.
Last week was about sewing hems. This week I thought was about seams.. which is what I really wanted to learn, but she changed it to pleats. Yes, pleats!!! So we did one inch side pleats and box pleats.. and the homework is to practice. I just might rebel and show up with my first made from scratch skirt instead, because that is really what I want to do this week.
