Day One

So really, I didn’t know anything about sewing when I took this picture of my very first attempt at some basic stitching. My wife, who is a phenomenal sewer, decided she would teach me some basics about the sewing machine. My first “lesson” went something like this:

Wife: “Taylor, let me show you how to wind the bobbin and thread the machine.”

Me: “Wind the what?” “You have to thread the machine?” Then I got distracted by the stitching diagram, “Oooh, it can do a zig zag, whoa that’s cool.”

Needless to say, she is a great teacher. Once I finally got the bobbin wound and the machine threaded, I played around a bit with some different types of stitches.

Next up, my first real project.
