More Girly Classes with Marie and Denise

Denise and I went over to M. Avery Designs in Hoboken yesterday to take a bag-creating class.

We had a blast. Had a leisurely ride over via Light Rail, gobbled up some brunch in an outdoor cafe on a beautiful spring morning, and sauntered down to the sewing studio by noon.

An 11-year-old girl was there, creating an adult bib for her grandmother. A boy of about the same age fastidiously sewed a shirt for his mother.

"I've been sewing three years," he said in a matter-of-fact tone. Future clothing designer right there.

Denise and I are both experienced bag-makers now and this was an introductory class so it was pretty easy and over in two hours. We're going back on May 9th to make wraparound skirts.
