“…so you haven’t started driving yet, but there’s two things with sewing that are kinda like driving; there’s the gas pedal and there’s the steering wheel. The steering wheel’s your hands, and they’re guiding and steering the fabric the direction you want them to go underneath the needle, so it sews where you want it to.”

A modest pro at sewing with kids, she joined us in an attempt to capture the chaos of a back to school project with four kids under 10 and one sewing machine.

Stay tuned for some tips, tricks and some spots around Austin to tune up your stitching skills.
