Home Ec did not prepare me for this







I have not have many times in my life that I have needed to sew until my son entered the Scouts. And then after I spent hours sewing on his badges and threading needles and hating life wondering where all of those Home Economic skills went? I made a bad ass purple and pink felt banner, a gym bag made from material thinner than kite or windbreaker fooshy stuff that never was carried to gym or anywhere for that matter and a pillow not quite square and not quite circular. But I digress. Those were mostly made on heavy duty sewing machine, something I have been asking around for in the family for years. I don't want to buy one but if there is one floating around not being used I would like to try my hand at it. I tried crochet. Not my thing, I could do the first row great and that would be about it.

But in the last six months both my husband and daughter have approached me with "Can you sew this?" or "Can you fix this?" Then they would scowl at me pull the thing away and say. I will check with Nanny or Chelle, like I was chopped liver. How can I learn if I do not keep on practicing? And that is what I plan on doing, just not with they precious clothing, to their knowledge at least.

The Quick Stitch comes with 12 basic thread colors, thimble, scissors, a button, safety pin, straight pin, various sewing needles, a threader and a tape measure. A perfect emergency sewing kit, a college sewing kit or Scouting kit or incompetent mother's sewing kit and maybe link her to some appropriate YouTube sites on how to not make herself bleed and or cry during the process. I give this product my honest #hippiehappy review.

I received this product in return for my honest review of #hippiehappy or #nothippiehappy review.
