Those Design & Technology Classes At School Could Be Paying Off Today


To many families in the 1980s and 1990s the sewing machine was a strange item that they seem to recall one of their grandparents having sat on a table in the back room all the time.  Something that has been held in family folklore but never actually featured as a working item that could possibly bring joy and home economies in their time.

There are so many wonderful books in the library and programmes on TV these days on how to make toys, household linen accessories and knitting materials like cashmere and angora.  There has certainly been a tremendous take up of the few places available at adult learning classes – what we used to call ‘night school’.  There is a waiting list for the sewing classes in some areas.   This new found enthusiasm has really encouraged some of the younger generation to see what they can do too.  Those DT lessons at school may not have been a complete waste of time after all.

Sewing Machines

Sew this long length of knitting to the tea cosy to form four loops, a bit like a flower. These loops make the hen\'s nest. Ideal for keeping the teapot and boiled eggs warm too, children really enjoy them. Taking less than an hour to make they do make a lovely surprise on Good Friday and Easter Sunday when you present someone a hard boiled egg for their breakfast that still has a hen sitting on top of it.
