Yesterday my sister and I attended the VIP blogger event at The Sewing Studio! Portia Makoma was kind enough to personally invite a few New York based bloggers to a private sewing lesson where we learned how to make a fashionable, cute clutch! I have been wanting to learn how to sew for so long and this gave me the opportunity to finally sit down and learn the basics of sewing. Portia made sure to have water, tea, and apple cider waiting for us and there were goodie bags at each of our sewing stations with our names on them. Charlene Washington was our instructor and led us through each step in learning how to sew our clutch. She did a wonderful job of guiding us through the process and made us feel confident we were doing a great job. I was a little uneasy at first since I'm not the best when it comes to DIY projects, but it was tons of fun nevertheless. We were all proud when our fun little project was completed and I am so happy I was able to be a part of this event! Sewing is a really great skill that everyone should learn. It comes in handy and can help you not only make but fix tons of different things! A big thanks to Portia, Charlene, and The Sewing Studio for having us! It was loads of fun and can't wait to do it again!
