We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give. Winston Churchill

Statue of Liberty

Hello A-Team:

It is at the end of a perfect day, that we all get a chance to look up into the sky and see gorgeous fireworks.  It is also a chance for us to reflect how lucky we all are, to live in this country.

Thank U Vets

Yes, there IS class this Wednesday.  By July 6th, we should all have our shirts cut and be ready to fuse and mark our fabric. Bring your samples in.  I will be grading them.  Remember to bring in your Press Cloths.  It would also help to bring a clear ruler that is 2 inches by 18 inches.  We need to cut off some…but not all… our seam allowances from our interfacing.  This will help to eliminate bulk at the edges.  I know this will NOT take us the entire class period, so we can begin to sew up our shirts.  WHAT FUN !!!!!
