|Savannah H., with her Wall Pocket, one of the projects in Sewing School 2|
Our hearts melted, and we each sent individual responses to Savannah, who discussed the creative process of book writing, her plans to sew the eHold project from Sewing School 2, and more. This is why, after teaching kids how to sew during summer camp, we submitted our book proposal to Storey in the first place — so that kids around the world could learn, too. Here’s a look at Savannah’s letter and her latest sewing projects.

Dear Amie and Andria,
I got your book Sewing School 2, and I would just like to say thanks! I love all the different projects, and I am sure it took a lot of writing, planning, and creative thinking. I love your ideas, and that book really helped give me confidence in sewing. I have my own sewing machine now, and I sew on it almost every day! I have been planning and saving up money to buy a mini Kindle, and I was flipping through your book, and then I’m like, “Oh look, there’s an eHold in here!” and I want to make that for when I get it! I love the little pocket and how it’s padded, and your instructions are super detailed, making it much easier to understand than most instructions. I have already made a couple things, and they are really cute and useful! I also like how you have answers in the back of the book explaining what to do when you are stuck or have a problem.

P.S. I love the patterns in the back of the book! Super useful!!
