I'm excited to share a bit of the sewing workshop that I held at West Elm, VA Beach last weekend. Earlier this year, I had heard that West Elm was looking for local crafters to feature. I sent an email introducing myself and telling a bit about what I do. The next thing I knew, we had a meeting and decided to schedule a Spring Sewing Workshop. Thrilled at the chance to collaborate, I went home and set to work designing a fun little project.
We set up shop at the West Elm, VB store for the workshop and exclusive DIY Bunny Kit. I brought machines, hand sewing needles, my favorite pompom tools and lots of felt. We divided the kids into groups and got to work.
I was so excited to have goodies from The Royal Chocolate. The candies were a hit! They were cut into fine little nuggets- just right for snacking.
Of course, the real joy of sewing with kids begins when the kids start to stuff their softies to bring them to life.
Thank you to the families who came to sew with us. It is such a joy to be able to share my passion for sewing (and making pompoms!). Thank you to the West Elm team for putting this together. We had a ball and look forward to popping-up again!
