Beginning 2010-2011

Crazy busy getting ready for classes to start!  Well, here's at least one class that is organized and ready to go!  6th grade pencil pouches.  First, we will be practicing stitches on scrap fabric, ie: running, whipstitch, blanket, and threading and knotting a needle, which seems like you shouldn't have to teach that, but believe me, if you spend some time on this at the beginning, you will be glad!
