My 6th grade classes are starting to sew their pillows together using the running stitch and back stitch. The 7th grade classes are finishing up their rice bag. We will practice some hand stitching over the next 3 or 4 days days. The 8th grade class started working on sewing buttons today and they will continue through Wednesday. We will move onto other repair techniques after we have mastered the button. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me through my firstname.lastname@example.org or our school phone 276-624-3341. Thank you!
