on the road to being domestic

I know that our generation of women have lost a lot of the sport of being domestic, and with good reason. We work hard and we play hard. Life as a mom and wife is not the same as it use to be. But I think that for the everyday women we are at a disadvantage not knowing how to properly do some things. My example is sewing. I'm sure a lot of you know how to sew, but I do not. I remember in Junior High we could pick a sewing elective or a cooking elective, I chose cooking. Well now I am 28 years old and I have no idea how to sew. Even sewing a button isn't pretty to watch. So a few months back a group of girls and I took a machine sewing class, a 101 class. We had fun! This month is sewing 201 and we are making an apron. I never in my wildest dreams would have imagined I would be so excited, but here I am.

My point to the whole post is that Joann's has become a fav because they offer sewing classes (as well as knitting, crochet, scrap-booking, florals, jewelry, cake decorating and so much more). Go to their website, find your local store and they will have a place online to see the classes offered each month. It's so much fun to do with friends if you can find someone to go with you!

Good for you! I have no idea how to sew. My husband does all of that for me. Glad I have him around or my pants would always be falling off!
