The Girly-girls in Fitjar

By spotogspindel | September 22, 2015

I´ve had the best day! Visiting Fitjar High School and the 9 students in the senior year in Arts and crafts. We spent the whole day together, sewing and chatting. I brought my girly-girls with me, and they all made their own bags, Almost everyone nearly finished… If we´d had another half an hour and some more bias-tape, I think we would have gotten it all done.


It was a bit hectic towards the end, so I only have one close-up photo. I think this might be the girl who was closest to finishing, with only the bottom of her bag left. Two of them made this big bag, the rest made passport-purses. But never mind not completely finishing! The important thing was learning new techniques with the sewing machine (freestyle machine embroidery) and many of them met the serger/overlock for the first time too! And the really fun thing is how personalized everyones girls became. Some of them had a truly unique style.


Such lovely students! I really hope to see them again 🙂

I just have to express how happy I am to meet young people who choose to study arts, crafts and textiles! It truly warms my heart!
