Last Wednesday, Lucy and I went to a sewing 101 class taught by one of my favorite clothing designers, Random Nicole. When I found out that she was having a workshop in The Road Less Traveled in Santa Ana (a cool environmentally & human conscious store that we both have always wanted to go check out), I just had to get Lucy a gift card for the class for her belated birthday present. It turned out to be quite the fun alternative to spending a Wednesday night. We met a group of really fun gals who were all eager to learn how to sew and make their pillows. Nicole was also very patient with us, no matter what level we're at with our sewing skills. And she was so encouraging even when our zig-zag stitch was a little wacky. Haha! Her mom was also so very helpful and encouraging. We had tons of fun. Thank you for the class, Nicole! Definitely a much needed break in the middle of the week.
