Students learned a smidge of pattern-making, a basic running stitch, how to hide your seams, a whipstitch, tufting, and tying lots and lots of knots. Most importantly, how to do it "all by yoursnelf," as my toddler would say.
And frankly, I am a little bit jealous! It's been a long time since I have had the chance to hang out with twenty friends and sew.

Moving on, here are some of the beauties they created.
So much pillowy love, coming your way, EES families!
With so much love to you this Valentine's Day,
