I've been asked to teach a basic sewing class for the ladies in our church. I'd like to ask for some suggestions. Do you have favorite basic sewing books or blog posts out there? I will probably start with machine usage and maintenance, but am unsure how to go from there. Narrowing this down to an hour is a little overwhelming. I could talk for hours about sewing. If you were teaching someone new to sewing, what would be the most important things for them to learn?
(Edit: This is just a basic sewing class. Some of these women have never even used a sewing machine. Although, I would love to teach a basic quilting class to some of them down the road. Our church actually owns three 20-year-old machines that have barely been used. Members are able to use them for short amounts of time. I'll probably teach with those since that is what the women will have access to if they don't have their own machine.)
On a side note, my Color Wheel Quilt was featured on Modern Day Quilts yesterday. I love that site. Heather always posts such amazing projects. I'm thrilled she included mine. I have found so many great bloggers through her posts.
Finally, a post without pictures is boring so I thought I would share what I had to clean up yesterday. I like my Diet Coke COLD--like with little tiny ice chunks in it. I'm pretty good at this. If it's already cold, it just need a few extra minutes in the freezer. If it's not cold, it needs about 35 minutes in the back of the freezer. I'm super forgetful, so I just set the timer for when I need to pull it out. Yesterday I forgot to set the timer.
I'm sure I'll be finding Coke ice chunks for months.
The funny thing is that in the afternoon I heard a very loud noise, like a gunshot. I'm pretty sure that was the top of the can exploding.
