What A Great Summer!
What a great summer we’ve had here – these past few months have been filled with wonderful classes and even MORE wonderful students! We had a ton of great summer camps going on this summer. However, the most popular was Emoji Camp – we had 14 participants for this camp alone! The kids had a great time sewing their own Emoji pillows and footy pajamas out of Emoji fabric. We even made Rice Krispy treats for snack, and decorated them with our favorite Emoji faces! Everyone had a blast, and I’m excited to be doing more of these camps moving forward.

I truly enjoyed all of my students this summer! However, there is one that stood out in particular. Cerra is 13 years old, and this her second year attending my camps. Each year, she flies to Oregon all the way from Hawaii in order to see her family and take my sewing classes! This year, she participated in Around The World Camp, where she had fun sewing her own french berét, french skirt, stuffed panda bear, and bag that says “Hello” in 13 different languages. It was a joy having her in class, and an honor to have her come all the way out here to see me. I’m looking forward to seeing you again!

What’s New With JoLene?
I was lucky enough to take a trip to Hawaii in April with my family! My husband, daughter, son-in-law, four grandkids and I all spent a week in Kauai. We went snorkeling, ziplining, swimming, and spent some time relaxing on Hanalei Beach. We also went to Turtle Cove, which is a small cove at the base of a cliff. There were tons of turtles swimming around! It was such a great trip, and an excellent way to spend time together as we got ready to head into summer. Here’s a few pictures from the trip:
I’m looking forward to seeing you all as we head into Fall! If you have any questions, please let me know.
