Sewing + International Delight Iced Coffee = Craft Night


When I made my 100 things to do in 2012 list, I knew right away that crafting parties would be on the list. Another item on my list was to teach others how to sew. Everything came together when Stephanie of Dial M for Minky asked me to teach her how to use her new sewing machine. Delora (in the above photo) wanted some advice about a valance she wanted to alter, so we had a crafting party!

Iced Coffee

Of course when there's crafting involved, we need tasty drinks. I brought over the new International Delight Iced Coffee for us to try out. We tested out three flavors: original, vanilla, and mocha.

I even wrangled her sister-in-law Kelly to try out some too. She was probably being nice since it was my first time meeting her. 


Both Stephanie and I drink a lot of coffee. A lot. Stephanie tried the vanilla and I hit the mocha. It tasted pretty good. The coffee was thick and creamy, but a little too sweet for me. I've become a hardcore drinker, so I can definitely see myself supplementing it with some of my leftover brewed coffee. Of course Stephanie and I didn't waste any coffee. We finished our glass!


After gabbing for an hour, we finally headed to the sewing machines. After teaching Stephanie how to thread a bobbin and her shiny new sewing machine, she practiced sewing a straight line. She did such a great job! After she got the hang of her machine, she upcycled a bed sheet into a pillowcase. She even made the ties herself! I'm very proud of her.

Delora fault valiantly against her machine. I'm afraid I wasn't as much help since I don't have very much experience with electronic sewing machine. I love my trusty 1970s Kenmore machine. Maybe one day I'll come over to the electronic side.

We had such a blast! I even made an upcycled headband while Stephanie and Delora sewed. (Photos later). After our brains were too tired to work heavy machinery, we ended up gabbing until almost 1AM. Yes, 1AM. It was a good thing I had an extra glass of iced coffee before I left. Not wise to stay so late on a snowy night, but a girls night was just what I needed after last week.

Guess it's time to plan the next craft night!
