Sewing with friends!

I'm slowly getting back into my groove sewing! This has been helped along by some awesome friends. 

Last week Sara invited Emily and I over to sew. Lucky for me her schedule is the same as mine (sewing after putting her kids to bed!) - so it was super easy to clear time to go sew!

I'm pretty lucky to have local sewing friends like this. It was a refreshing night - a chance to hang out and socialize and sew a little bit too! 

Vintage singer 301a

I brought my vintage Singer 301a machine with me - I'd really never sewn with this machine for any length of time, so it was a real treat to get to know her a bit better! It was pretty amusing since I'm so set in my ways with my Juki (I especially missed the knee lift bar). I didn't have any real problems, but I'm fairly sure that I wound the bobbin wrong when I started a new thread color. No big deal I'm sure I'll figure that out, but I'll have to look at the manual next time.

I worked on a cute little bunting for a friend of mine, Emily sewed the lining into a fabulous dress, and Sara worked on some crazy awesome quilt blocks. Keep your eye out for those on her blog, they're pretty great! 

In all it was a really great night. We stayed up a bit late, and had some yummy Thai food. We Chatted about all sorts of things (and maybe realized that Emily and I are overwhelmingly chatty?). And of course we did sew too.

Sadly I didn't get any good pictures of our sewing time. Just the one good one of my machine (if you look closely Sara is in the background lol).


  1. Wait. What??? You have out OUT of your sewing groove?

  2. I'm so happy you are sewing again.
