We are getting our class calendar filled with some great classes and events. I am just overwhelmed with the talent and skill I have seen from our teachers. So let’s get started on this list....
On Tuesday, September 24, Fancy Filler and Shapes is an informative class using a sewing machine that has either IQ Design or My Design Center. This is the first in a series of 4, just for these machines. Cost is just $99 for a single class or $299 for the entire series, that makes the 4th class FREE! Cost includes a USB drive with all 6 designs, hands on, on your own machine and lunch. We still have a few seats left for this first class, so call or email soon.
Thursday, September 26, is Quilting with your Walking Foot with Mo. She has some great samples at the shop. This is a half day class and is a bargain at just $45.
During the afternoon of September 26, Mo will continue her quilting series with Free Motion quilting. Again, the samples are great. This class is also $45.
Just in time for Halloween, Mary Ellen has a cute Jack O’Lantern placemat with a Candy Corn coaster class. This is a fun project that will be completed during the class on Saturday, September 28, from a free pattern! Cost is just $35.
Patty McCoy with the Linen Cottage from Fort Myers is going to join our teaching staff. She has an amazing amount of knowledge on vintage linens and is a great resource.
Patty McCoy will be teaching a Heirloom Bag with a Modern Twist on Thursday, October 3 at 10:30. This is a twist on most heirloom projects since it is suggested that you use modern fabrics! You do not need a special machine for this class, just a sewing machine that will stitch a straight stitch and a zigzag. It is only $30.
On Thursday, October 10, Patty will be teaching Heirloom Pillowcase with a Modern Twist. You will learn how to sew a pin tuck, attach lace, gather and attach a ruffle and again you only need a machine that does a straight stitch as well as the zigzag stitch. This project will fit a travel or boudoir pillow 12x16. Cost is $45.
MaryEllen is offering another paper piecing project, Tranquility, from the book “Little Gems”. This is a beautiful little project that perfectly fits on a small hanger that will fit on any table in you home. This class is being held on Saturday, October 12 and is $35.
Tuesday, October 15, Mo will be teaching a fun project, using the AccuQuilt cutter. This class is called Hawaiian With a Little Help. You will cut out designers on the AccuQuilt machine and then raw edge appliqué and then quilting the design in Hawaiian style. Cost of this class is $50. Mo’s sample is just stunning, so stop by and see this project.
We have a sweet collection of sewing themed fabric coming in this week. Also, a fun gummy bear print fabric. Oh, the cute projects I can see coming up! We will be posted these on Facebook and Instagram as soon as they arrive.
I am working on a couple projects for future classes. Caryn, will be back in October and you know how much she loves to make bags, and does she have some really cute projects she wants to have classes on. So stay tuned!
Don’t forget that we have open sewing with our “Sew It’s Monday”. We welcome everyone to come join in the fun, so either pack a lunch or plan on stepping out to grab a bite. We meet every Monday.
