Mia loves to sew!

Last week was Spring Break for the grandkids and Mia went to our LQS for 3 days of sewing. On Wednesday there was 3 girls and they made pajama pants. Her fabric is really cute and she had a ball sewing from 9-2....with a salad lunch provided! Aren't these cute?


For Thursday and Friday the other 2 girls couldn't be there, so Mia had a one on one class with the 2 owners. One of them on Thursday and the other one on Friday. The class was to be a Mother's Day gift....I wish it was a Grandmother's Day gift. It is a gorgeous tabletopper! I am sure she had help, but she does follow directions well annnndddd she even got to use the longarm machine to quilt it. She has her name quilted in and the date! I am so proud of her! She is going to be surpassing me with her skills....I have never used a longarm! The binding is on and pinned and she is now doing the handwork at home. Mom knows about it....she couldn't wait!

She won't be 10 until June!! She started sewing on my lap when she was 6....great job, sweetie!

Wow, what a talented little girl. Would love to have had those opportunities at her age. Or even now, lol

Great table topper! How cool that she had one on one classes like that! :0)

Great work and I think all kids should know a little about sewing, even boys like Brian.

Gosh, what a good job Mia has done! I, too, wish I had had someone to direct me or give me lessons when I was that age. Luckily, I had an excellent basic sewing class offered in school when I was in junior high and I never looked back after that! What we can't do with a little direction and encouragement.

Mia is very talented and one lucky gal to have these opportunities. I wish my granddaughters would develop enough interest to "take off" with sewing the way Mia has done!
