R.I.P. Miss Skoglund ..... i loved your classes and appreciate your nonstop efforts and interest in "attempting" to teach me to sew .... the apron i accomplished to finish is the only thing i've completed since your class - i only wish i still had it .... condolences to the entire family and circle of friends.

Thank you, Mrs. Skoglund for your patience, guidance and unending encouragement that you gave to me.  Because of you, I went on to be a skilled seamstress and am currently making a beautiful Belle dress for my granddaughter to wear on Halloween.  I want you to know that you are the one teacher in my life that made the biggest impact on me.  I fondly think of you often, especially when I am creating a new project.  Sewing seems to be a lost art these days, but I have hung on to the skills that you so gracefully taught me.

Rest in peace, Mrs. Skoglund, thank you for gracing my world.
