Seamstress's Apprentice

Seamstress's Apprentice



For Activity Days Mattey learned to sew.  She and all the other girls each made a skirt.  There was a lot of hand holding and explaining but somehow I, the impatient teacher, helped Mattey make the skirt.  There were times that she did the pedal and I did the "driving" and other times where we switched.  At one point she was a little nervous about the needle going too fast so I cranked the wheel instead of using the pedal.  Luckily that part was only a few inches long.  Time will tell if she really wants to learn more about sewing.  My older machine, that a friend was borrowing, came back home so Mattey could have a machine of her own to use.
