The studio is always  a hive of creative energy.  Everyone choosing their own projects and bringing them to life!  For me, there is no better job to have or place to be!

Donation Workshop

Once a month Let's Go Crafting hosts a donation workshop.  Donation Workshop days are free and students join us to make something that benefits a charitable organization.  This month we made cat beds for the animal shelter in Palo Alto.

This month's team of fantastic students!! 

We used old towels (most of them were donated by our community) to make the beds.

 The kids cut the towels and sewed them and then stuffed the outside channel to make them more comfortable for the cats.

 We had soooo much fun!!


Some of our students even made two beds!! Thank you to everyone who donated and who came to sew!!!

Our week in review

This week has been great!  We worked on so many different projects and had so much fun!

We had lots of finishes!  Bean bags, pin cushions and a zippered heart pouch which actually has a zipper on the back as well!  Very creative!

There was knitting, weaving, cross stitch, sewing and crochet happening!  And…

something that really makes me happy.  These sewn projects were all made by one of my students all by herself at home!  How fantastic is that?!!

Third Week Camp Highlights

We are currently entering out 5th week of camp!! I am really behind on the blogging front, but we are having a fantastic time at camp!  Here are some of the highlights from sewing camp during week three:

There were lots of tote bags made.  Each one turned out so well!

Lots and lots of pillows were made.  Some were quilted and some had embroidery on them.

Stuffed animals, pillow cases, and freeform dolls with their own set of clothes!

This sewing camp decided they wanted to weave so we set up the looms for them!!  What a fun time we had!  Lots of scarves, table runners and even a pair of wrist warmers!

Head bands and scrunchies!

And so much more!!  Our sewing camps are so much more than just sewing.  They are about exploration, friendship and fun!

First week of camp!

Our first week of camp is off to fantastic start!  We are sewing this week and our group of students are sooo creative!

Finished projects from the first two days of camp.  A sundress and two fox stuffed animals!

We made pincushions to start – either to learn how to use the machines or to brush up on some skills that hadn’t been used in awhile.

Then it was on to other things!   Each student picked their own project and blazed away.
