His & Hers Class

Today saw the launch of my Sunday Sewing Classes at the Bank House Hotel in Uttoxeter. Two people came... well, I gotta start somewhere eh. This is Liz.. she got to use one of the Aurora babies.. and she loved it!
This is her partner, Ian. I gave him the Bernina 230... for today. I suggested that next week they could swap, but Liz doesn't want to, I'm not surprised... so I will take an Aurora for Ian too. He has never used a sewing machine before and I have to say... he's very good at it... very straight lines.
They both got a lot done.. of course we were doing my favourite beginner project.. a Rail Fence Table Runner.... Liz chose Autumn colours....
Ian chose the colours of his favourite Rugby team..... Leicester (I think) ... red green and white.... so his project matched his shirt!
They both finished the centre of their quilt tops today so next Sunday, we will add the borders, make sandwiches and, hopefully, quilt them using a walking foot.

It's still snowing and freezing here, very pretty!

A small class is better than a large class, in my opinion. Sounds like fun.
