Art of Making with Our Hands

Since I was a little person, I’ve loved making things with my hands.  And if I didn’t know how to make it, I’d go to our local library and find a book to help me figure out how to do it.  There was magic in the search to figure it out and then in the making it!  . My Mom and Dad were makers and they helped in many of the adventures.

I hope to give that sense of "loving the making" to my students at Ridgeway Community School.  This autumn, I held a Stitching Club to teach children how to tie a knot, sew on a button and learn some simple stitches.  We made some fun projects.

The Kindergarten through 2nd Graders made a stitching card with a butterfly, a giraffe and a little pocket to store treasures.  A big thank you to all the volunteers who helped these little ones have such great success.

They were very happy with their stitching projects!
