|before teaching my first class!|
so sure enough the night before my first class i was exhausted from traveling but buzzing with excitement on the unknown.
i got up put on my cute skirt made out of my fabric and went on my merry way...
nervous but excited...
so how did it go??
|first day of classes showing off their ruffles|
|second day of classes waving to the camera working on their ruffles|
I FREAKING LOVED IT!!!!! i had women who had been sewing since before i was even a thought in my mother's mind, i had a 13 year old who had been sewing for a few years. (yup super impressed by the looks of that young one!) and i had ages all in between that. it was fun getting to teach and laugh and help these women for the day.
as i write this i've received a couple of pictures from a student of all three finished projects:
man i kind of miss all you ladies :). i loved teaching to such a large spectrum of ages, and experiences. so so fun!
okay i'll go to H-E double hockey sticks if i lie like that...
actually there was a crowd on the second day and they were chomping at the bit (don't mess with texan quilters man!) there was a line and the rush of women rushing in was pretty insane and exciting and they were all there to see:
BERNINA (yup as in THE owner of the company) this man is Mr. Ueltschi and he is fourth generation owner of the BERNINA company.
he was there to also congratulate the three winners of the University of Texas fashion design school winners and their designs. (you can see behind me the motorcycle outfit)
i didn't have a sewing machine to have him sign but i did get one of my patterns for his autograph.
so first set of sewing classes taught.
meeting the owner of BERNINA
such an eventful and exciting weekend!
but the most exciting thing that happened this weekend was the phone call i got at the end of the first day of teaching:
Apparently while I was in Austin, my eldest noisemaker upon trying to make fart noises with his armpit, discovered he grew his first armpit hair. He called me and said "I'm becoming a man mom."
what a weekend.
