Some Tells on facemasks: From Lisa:On the Albany Sewing Machine Center facebook page, owner Kevin Frisenda did a video about adding a wire to shape around the nose area. From Lucy: We sewers can help as well as use our time for good. Instructions are in silhouette.com website. These were requested for Westchester County & other places. Video is on YouTube.
Trying something new-a video. Clipping those threads ya'll!
A work in progress, Block one from Amy Butler designs, Camper collection. Posted by Bonny D on 3/30/2020 2019 You may have heard that I am on a Sewing for Love kick. I picked up some NEW pantyhose to make head covers. These would be worn under a scarf for sensitive scalps. I cut them and sewed it with two seams to close. I've seen this done in videos or blogs, they suggest using control top hose in the smallest size. I think mine were the next size from smallest (they were out of stock) and found that even this size felt a bit tight. I've also seen on the internet tutorials doing weird folding and knotting of the legs then cutting. I did not find this necessary. I basically had the waist part closest to me and cut. I used a stretch stitch.
This picture is showing how you would use the top waistband part of the hose for the cap. No hemming!
I unfortunately did not take any pictures of the scarfs I made. I made black ones and burgundy colors in sheer like fabric each with a rolled edge using my 'on last legs' serger. I made these around 30 something square. I also had some other fabric that I made accidentally rectangular scarfs, these had a interesting print that I probably bought to make a blouse. It is much better as a scarf. I made two of these large rectangles using the serger again for the rolled edge and big enough to wrap around a head. I made a small scarf for myself.
Are you Sewing for Love? Please share!

President Kathy took time to pass these along.
They were taken at the December meeting. For some reason I can’t find my notes on who did what. I know Sue Bernandt made the snowflakes. Marilyn Kindle made the tree skirt as a gift. I think Mona made the moose wall hangings.
