Last year we sewed by hand. This year I introduced sewing on the machine. It is the favorite activity in the classroom. Last week Asher made a Batty Cat, which led his sister, Vega, to make her own Batty Cat at home along with her own design, a flower.
Asher also sewed a wizard cape for himself for Halloween and Brigit who is the sewing master sews at home constantly. Last year, after I taught Brigit how to sew, she helped me teach the rest of the class. This year, when I taught her to use the machine, she mastered it, no longer needs my help and spends her days sewing and teaching others how to use the machine.
I have even gotten the bug and we sew at my house as well.
