A local youth group who provides a sewing and fiber arts program has been using our Education Page as a resource for their projects.  One of the groups young members suggested we add the following website as a resource to our Education page.  So we decided tot make her up on the offer.   This is a general site on sewing that provides ton of sites on sewing related content.  So thank you Bella!   http://www.homeadvisor.com/r/home-hobbies-sewing-resources/#.V_vvjjKZO_g

  5. Always thread your needle with the thread as it comes off the spool.  It feels right to thread your needle where you cut it, as it’s smoother but the thread has a direction.
  6. Don’t lick the thread to get it in the eye of the needle, lick the needle.
