First Annual GPL Holiday Craftacular
Last Wednesday, a group of teens came to GPL for our first annual Holiday Craftacular. The goal of the afternoon was to make rocking paper snowflakes and sew t-shirt scarves. I could handle the paper snowflakes due to my run as an Arts and Craft Director at a summer camp. The t-shirt scarves were a completely different story!
Let’s just say that I have managed to go through entire life without once touching a sewing machine. When it came time to face my nemesis (which happened to be a purple craft/sewing machined called a Pixie), I managed to produce one epic fail after another. Several times, I thought that I was sewing like a professional only to look up and see that the thread had come completely loose from whatever contraption held it in the machine. Luckily, one of our teens knew how to use Pixie and saved the day!
