Summer Has Flown By


How does that even happen? Summer is almost gone. Although the temperature here are still very much like summer. Schools in our area starts next week. Both the local public schools and the university. I have now graduated to college level schedules as the last of my children is on that schedule.

All of my schedules are changing. My private and small group sewing students are preparing for their new school year to begin and I am in a bit of a lull waiting to begin my Fall sewing classes. It’s nice to have some time for planning and to have time to finish up projects and begin some new.


I do already have some classes that are already scheduled and registration has begun through the Charlottesville City Parks & Recreation Program. (Click the for the link.) I will be offering 7 classes this Fall. Classes begin September 6 and some fill up very quickly so don’t delay.

Here is a brief rundown of the classes I will be offering:

Monday:  Beginner Kids Sewing – ages 8 -12 AND Beginner 2 Kids Sewing – ages 8 -12

Tuesday: Beginner Adult Sewing AND Mend It Sewing

Wednesday: Beginner Teen Sewing – ages 13 -17 AND Basic Quilting AND Adult Advanced Sewing

Thursday: 60+ Classes – Senior Sewing

Our monthly American Sewing Guild Neighborhood Group for Kids Sew Too will resume the week. We meet the third Saturday of the month from August thru December. Membership is open to the public. Come join this great bunch of kids as I guide them through a different project every month that builds skill and confidence.

I am very excited about these offerings and if you have any questions please leave me a comment. And tell all your friends.

Happy end of Summer!

    Phew, Robyn, you ARE gonna be busy this Autumn! Ali’s right, it looks like a great array of classes & ages. Noticed a felting class, too. Are you also doing that? Sounds very different. **Where** is that button collection??? It looks amazing!

    • Haha! If all my classes hold, I will be busy. I am not the instructor for the felting class. I would love to take it though. I took a needle felting class recently. It was a lot of fun. All those buttons are in the fabric store, Les Fabriques. The store owners lets us hold our meetings there.

  3. Wow! You have something for everyone, how marvelous! And who wouldn’t want to play in all those buttons. I think it would be great fun (and beneficial) to take some sewing classes.
