It has been hard to watch as the new students (except one - she has a machine at home and does know a little bit about sewing on a treadle) try to get they 'rhythm' of 'treadling'! Today they were given papers with lines and shapes on them to follow with just the needle. By the 3rd and 4th papers they were doing okay.
|AM class sewing with paper.|
|It takes a lot of concentration, and coordination in using a treadle.|
|For half of each class, Theo started to teach them about measuring for a skirt.|
|This is the PM class learning after they did the paper sewing.|
|This little girl lives next door to the school, and is always peeking in - Today I got her picture!!!!|
