As many of you know, I've started working at a local sewing studio called Common Thread. After two years of blogging and stay-at-home-mothering, this has been a very cool addition to life. It's absolutely part of God's answer for what it means for me to do creative work. Here's a little peek into my time so far!
1. Re-entering the working world (especially such a stylish and cute slice of the working world) has meant carrying myself in a different way. When getting dressed for work, I channel my inner boutique owner. (Who knew I had one? I'm in a bathrobe as I type...)
pillows & curtains class if you want to make your own.
sign artist at each store to make their hand-lettered signs? I'm so not at that level yet.)
6. I went through our Tote Bag class as part of my training. So fun! It's amazing what satisfaction can come from making a simple bag. It makes you appreciate everything sewn so much more. And Jin (the owner) is a great teacher - she kept me on my toes!
blogging for the store!
Common Thread has been interacting with customers. People come to us to be creative and learn, and that makes them truly fun to work with.
