successfullanguagele writes: Would really appreciate a copy as I work (voluntarily) with a group of migrant and refugee women and we are always looking for ways of using small amounts of fabric to make things we can sell.
Of course we spend a lot of time making children's special party or traditional clothes, make alterations to clothing, and one lady even brought vinyl so she could make floor cushions for her home. Luckily one of the machines was sturdy enough to sew it, but this was a useful learning situation for everyone in the class too.
I find that sewing in this community is very rewarding, but then any kind of sewing is, isn't it?

wingsgrammy writes: I used to think of paper, fabric flowers as "fake." I started making some "pop up" cards with flower themes. Then looked at paper and fabric, thinking I'm not trying to make a living flower but capturing the essence "flower" using media instead of seeds.
