I have started to have “sewing days” or classes for my friends who want to learn to sew. This is the project I chose for us. I had to make it ahead of time so I knew what I was doing. :) We had a great time and are planning one for next month already.

    i love this one!! and the colour is my all time favourite. i think your sewing days sound excellent. i am planning on having some for friends to learn the bear basics of quilting, but am a little nervous about getting it all started!

    your sewing days sound great. i have often thought of doing this but trying to get a suitable time for more than one person is rather difficult what with work and kids. love the gathered yoke. was is hard to do?

      I know what you mean – I just pick a day and time that works for me and make it a facebook event and invite everyone I know. Those who can make it come, and those who can’t try to make it the next time around. The yoke was time consuming, but it’s not hard. You basically have a flat yoke and the gathered yoke. You stitch the gathering stitches and then pin it to the flat yoke, pull up the threads and try to distribute the gathers evenly until it fits the flat yoke. :)
