Summer Classes

 Since summer will soon be here and with it vacations and evening activities, we're offering several Tuesday morning classes to make quick, fun and easy projects to keep or give as gifts. Some will be two weeks in length but many will be one day events.  Classes will be $10 per day ($20 for two-day classes) plus the pattern (if needed), fabric and supplies. If we have enough participants, we will turn it into an Across the Street Retreat at the Inman Presbyterian Church Social Hall just across the street from the church. Bring your machine and basic sewing supplies and, if you'd like, a snack to share. We'll supply the beverages.  See the upper right sidebar for times and dates or drop by for a complete schedule printout.  Among the offerings will be the cute Prairie Point Bag shown above using the free pattern from All People Quilt ( Tuesday, June 21st and 28th.  Learn prairie points, patchwork piecing tips and covered buttons.

 We'll also have a class to make the Juliet Bag with changeable sash tie Tuesday, June 7th and 14th.  This has been quite a popular purse pattern by Me and My Sister Designs.
 At our UFO (unfinished objects) class Tuesday, July 19th (also a $10 session), bring that project you haven't finished, your machine and supplies, a snack and plan to get it completed. We'll also demonstrate how to make the Hotdog Pillowcase, with no raw seams. Make these as gifts for nieces, nephews or to give to various childrens charities and bust your fabric stash at the same time.
 We'll make the Four Corners Apron by Vanilla House Tuesday, July 26th. Several customers made quite a few of these last year as Christmas gifts for good friends and a few for themselves as well.
And for another fun class, we'll supply the 'orphan blocks' and quit them for you to make the Pollo Loco chicken pincushions Tuesday, August 2nd.  So, stop by, sign up and come have some fun learning a few new techniques and making some fun summer projects!
