beginner sewing instruction for 5 saturdays from from 10 am to noon. $72. starting september 25. downtown lancaster. the nimble thimble.
pros: seems like a reasonable price. includes pattern and 1 hr of parking validation. is a skill i’ve been longing to have. would feel more deserving of the sewing machine on my Christmas wish list. could make quilts for the baby(ies) i want to have one day.
cons: is at least 5 saturdays in the fall that i can’t spend with my sister and her boys who are moving to bucks county next week. unless she comes to me and we start our fall outings after noon. (not that i think we’re going to see each other every single saturday, every single weekend.) also would probably mean i can’t take voice lessons. which is something else i’ve been longing to do. probably longer than i’ve been yearning for sewing skills. probably more expensive, too.
i’m sure i could dig deeper and find more pros and cons. but i’m not emotionally ready to go there.
so. do i take the sewing class or what?
