Sewing Day

We had a sewing day Thursday!  It was a lot of fun!  We have our Facebook group for the Missouri TOGA (Treadle-O Gathering Academy).  The TOGA is the weekend after Father's Day every year, but I thought it would be nice for the Ozark Treadlers (our new name for the locals) to meet every other month for a sew day and to work on individual projects and things for the TOGA every year.
We had our first sew day on Thursday at the Ava Art Guild who graciously allowed us to use their building for free.

My machine, a Singer class 99 turned into a handcrank

Don's machine, a toy chain stitch machine that sews

See the perfect chainstitch it makes?
I love sewing days!  Once school starts we will have to start meeting on Fridays since my school has classes Monday through Thursday.  I don't think I have mentioned on here that I will be teaching at Whetstone Christian Academy this year.  I will be teaching kindergarten and first grade.

Do you prefer sewing with friends or by yourself?

I like sewing with friends but I get a lot more done by myself. HA! I like the name Ozark Treadlers.

I love to sew with friends- just hate dragging everything along. Our guild has a retreat twice a year and I plan projects and kit them out for it. It is amazing how much I can get done then.

Oh looks like fun. I like sewing with friends, but I don't get much done.
