Hemming Knits - can be a bit 'challenging'. Below is just a hint of all the info (including video clips from my 3 Disc DVD) that you'll find at my blog post for today, May 2, Click the Button below to read everything I know about hemming knits!

Knit hems can turn out wavy AND bulky, so you must stabilize the hem allowance, and clip to 'balance the bulk'.  Just think about it: if you press seams one direction, then turn up a hem, that is SIX layers on one side vs TWO layers on the other side of the seam.  NOT Good!  Clip at the fold line and throw the seam allowance the opposite direction to 'balance the bulk'.

Passions Taking Over
Girls, Girls and More Girls
There's no NO DOUBT... my heart has been won over - by GIRLS!  
On top of teaching young girls in my classes here at the Sunroom Sewing Studio, at my last sewing 'Expo' (Novi American Sewing Expo)  in September,  God put in front of me the causes/programs for
WHAT is Days for Girls?

Creating KITS to manage monthly hygiene needs...
Using our sewing skills and sewing supplies (too often stashed and un-used), Kits are stitched and assembled that change lives.  Each Kit lasts an average of 3 years and a value of $12-$15 plus the loving labor to create them.  Two Shields that snap onto the 2 panties hold trifold double layer flannel Liners (8 included), a washcloth, soap, a gallon freezer quality ziploc bag for storage until laundering, and instructions for use are all discreetly packaged in a colorful drawstring bag along with education.  
 
 
 I'm also focused also on involving women in local shelters and rehab centers in this project as I and other local sewists share our love of sewing with them to enrich their lives and skills.

FAIRY GODMOTHER

Never Fear..... I'm still regularly Sewing and Creating and BLOGGING as I design and sew.  Be sure to subscribe to my BLOG, either directly for a stand-alone email each time I post, or through BlogLovin.  I'm blogging several times each and every week!  On my Design table right now are some EASY EASY sweatshirt interpretations and some LONGER Tunic options with my Terrific T pattern.   
In fact, I'm still taking a few presenting engagements in locations here around the south, but the 'show' days are OVER!!!  And, I now know more about Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram than I ever wanted to..but I'm finding the Social Media marketing to be a bit of fun as well. Follow me through the links found below at the very very bottom of this email.  
Have fun SHOPPING and SAVING and I'll have even more fun playing FAIRY GODMOTHER as I tuck in EXTRA free gifts!
