a bit of show and tell

Last week on Friday I was invited to Sonja’s class to show what my “career” was… I had seen pics online of other parents and asked if I could come too and show my quilts.

Sonja’s kindergarten teacher also taught Bjorn and Solveig so of course she knew I quilted and I’ve given her little things over the years too Winking smile

Sonja was a great helper and Anja had fun throwing a fabric ball around to the other kids.

as a little teacher appreciation gift I gave them (Mrs McKee and her T.A) a set of potholders and an eyeglass case Smile

it was short and sweet and I think the kids liked it.

I think it is always good for kids to see that you can actually make things instead of buying them. Many kids today don't have family that makes quilts.

How fun for you and them to see your quilts. Always good to introduce it to them young:)

I cherish those memories - it is so much fun to be able to do this with your kids and their classmates.

What I see as so nice is that the children were able to see that creativity can become a career, just as fixing things, working in an office, etc. Good for you.

What a great idea... on so many levels. The way to make sure crafts and craftsmanship survives is to inspire the kids. :)

Such a great idea! We need to get them interested in quilting at an early age!
