Can I just use a sewing machine?

Second graders have been learning how to sew and practicing the running stitch and backstitch for their logos. As we were reviewing at the start of class…

gr 2: Can I just use a sewing machine? It’s so much faster.
me: Do you know how to use a sewing machine?
gr 2: No.
me: If you bring one in, I’ll teach you.

Later in the class, he wanted to know if there were other types of stitches he could use.  I think I have a sewing enthusiast!

I wish we had home ec class, the kids would love it. It was one of my favourites along with CDT (craft design and technology) and art.
