Useful Skills and Gifts from NJ

Our recent visitors, a skilled seamstress among them, held a sewing and tailoring workshop for a group of the children. The older girls especially impressed them with how much they already knew. Above, Mikerlange sews on a button (I think)

Here Immaculata, one of our tailor shop workers, helps with the lesson.

Linda, our visitor and an accomplished seamstress (background of the above picture) brought along plenty of materials and an instructional book so we could continue with the classes and even expand into embroidery. What a great idea for the kids.

Also, middle school science teacher Laura brought over elastic band bracelets and messages of greeting from her classes in NY; here's Evenson displaying his. They were a big hit.
