Well it looks like I am leaving a lil' later folks

If anyone knows what a serger is raise your right arm.. then your left arm.. then join it together to do the wave... yay!
Well if you don't know it is a lovely little device that sews and cuts at the same time! whoa. to get the students to learn to work one we shall sew these lovely banners together and put them all around the sewing room making it festive and cheery. I think we shall use crazy african fabric prints though because they are way cooler than our own.
Later when we make them I will post a pic for your viewing pleasure
