L.I.F.T.S. 2007 is now behind us.  This year I taught a program called “Christmas in August”.   The class created hand sewn lapsize Christmas Quilts. The children in  this year’s session ranged in ages from 9-11. This is quite an accomplishment because the overall class time is only 20 hours long !

For those who are unfamiliar with it, the L.I.F.T.S. program offers young people a chance to learn a myriad of skills including hand sewing. The L.I.F.T.S. (“Learning Is Fun This Summer”) program is held at the Greenwich High School in Washington County each summer.
