Quiz every week, lot of different samples. Turned in skirt, loved the technique for sewing the waist facing. Used the blind hemmer.

Sewed a t shirt, used the cover stitch machine.  Copied the sloper for the A- line skirt.

Last project is a camp shirt with techniques for matching stripes.  

Cut the shirt, thread marked (so efficient!) pocket and button placement

 

New technical term. Plaid refers to stripes that run at a 90 degree angle to the warp.

We dreamed of a time when yarn would feed smoothly so that we could knit row after row without tugging, pulling, or untangling. Then, we realized that we could just re-envision a classic yarn caddy / Lazy Susan concept and create a flat-packable device that can sit and rotate on any quarter-inch shaft, including our Lazy Kates and Simple Kates. Tensioned with our patent-pending TensiTamer gizmo, the yarn feed rate is controlled--or not, if that's your preference! We'd say more, but we've already returned to our knitting….
Akerworks: We like making things.
