Marty's Randon Sewing
Friday's at work it dress code was relaxed. I decide to wear a strange
shirt on Fridays. I had cut out a shirt from material I found at the
local fabric shop. It was all covered with Light House. (# 1 below)
Given it to Mom to sew before me. After 5-6 weeks it wasn't complete.
Mom, who was still sewing up a storm making all kinds of craft items.
Mom loved doing these things. When we were kids Mom made most of our
I agreed and pickup the Alden. I found out hat the sewing machine had not been used for a while so it was stiff. After using it a while and a little oil it started to loosen up. There were a few things that did not work as I thought. I thought I must wait and see.
Well, I went to the fabric shop and got some material I thought I could make a shirt from. I got a pattern and cut out the shirt. Then I set down and start sewing. I had to take some thing s apart 2 maybe 3 times. After a week or so I had a shirt. It wasn't great though it was a shirt. My first. I wrote down the date as March 17th, 2002. The shirt I gave Mom was finished on the 22nd.
At this point I decided to make a shirt for each Friday. Below you will see the things I have sewed. Is sewed a word? Below is the item I have sewed.
I signed up for a sewing class after making 6 shirts. I thought I could learn something. The local sewing store gave class through the locale community college. I was the only guy in the class. The rest were ladies. In the class we made a vest. I have since out grown it. After the beginning class Lynda the teacher and owner of the sewing shop told us there was an on going class once a week where you could sew almost anything and she would help. I joined. This was a fun. I stayed in the class for more than a year. In one class we learned to make a scarf, we did embroidery, made Christmas cards, and there was one lady who brought in a chair to recover. I made a coat and a lot of shirts.
