Dying trade revived

Dying trade revived

This is amazing! I remember when sewing was part of Home Economics in school – but that was more for home use than production use.  My grandmother was a professional seamstress before she got an education and became a photojournalist.  I used to love her basement — sewing table set up right next to the expensive and hard to find adjustable mannequin – right next to the dark room.  And the library with all its reference books and office with the typewriter. 

I have an antique sewing machine from the late 40’s that belonged to my husband’s grandmother.  It is all cast iron and will sew leather (if I were brave enough to try, that is). It needs another servicing, but I’m pretty sure it will outlive my 3 year old grand daughter.

I would love to find a class like this here in my part of the country!
