    Teaching DIY Sewing

    I wanted to share with y'all pictures of the tarp my students and I made this week in class. I teach a special needs class at Blythewood High School in Blythewood, SC. We have been working on transition and life skills in the classroom and I wanted to show the students that sewing is cross gender. Their work is is no where near perfect but a great start. Thanks for all guidance. I see many more projects in the future.

    Teaching DIY Sewing

    That is an awesome thing to give students.

    My kids use to have a class that would teach some construction basics, shop skills using hand and power tools. But due to funding in school district they eliminated this class.

    That's awesome. Looks good! I have no problems calling it a sewing machine and saying that I sew...then again I am a man in a female dominated profession (Registered Nurse).

    That is great! One of the things my mother taught me was to stitch a little with needle and thread so I could repair some of my clothes. I think she really taught me to do this so she didn't have to sew on patches and merit badges when I was in Boy Scouts! Ha ha!
    I haven't got the skill to sew on a machine yet but I fix dog beds and such the animals tear up. Saves money that's for sure!

    Thanks for doing what you do!
