Sewing is not just material and thread. It is lace and hemming tape and rick rack. It is machine embroidery designs downloaded from one’s favorite sites. And, in the case of specialty items one might sew, it is cord and rulers and cases and, oh, so much more. And, sewing can be expensive.
“Rock Around the Clock”, sung by Bill Haley and the Comets, inspired many Third Graders (and others) to really swing! The music set a fast pace, and any eight-year old found it impossible to keep those feet still when listening to it, much less his/her little body!
My mother was a whiz with the sewing machine. Although she owned and used her share of Simplicity and McCalls patterns, she also employed a keen eye for designs. When called upon, she could be a copycat designer.
