February 15,2014 Lakewood High Sew Day * PICTURE LOADED*

We had a LARGE group of JROTC students attend the workshop as well as other students and parents. It was a flurry of fabrics and blocks, borders, backs. Most of them laid out their blocks on the floor to find a pleasing arrangement:

Commander Bullock of the Lakewood ROTC helped her students. Once the blocks were laid our and pinned, it was time to start sewing…..Most had not sewn before, so were shown the basics.

Cabot Creamery of Vermont supplied us with bars of cheese individually wrapped to snack on. There were only 2 left at the end of day
The students learned teamwork. That floor can be a long way down!

We had volunteer ironers slaving away; some even had smiles for us. Some used the tables to lay out their blocks and pin together.

There always has to be some un-sewing—this fabric stained their hands…I worked them to the bone! It has to be done well
And a good time was had by all. We still have several more tops that were near completion, so those will be completed at our regular sew day on Thursday. They just need borders sewn on or backs made.
