Greetings from Sew-into-Quilts & Sew-Fix-it!
We hope that you are all well and enjoying Spring thus far. We started "Kids Can Sew Camp" this morning. It is so exciting to see these young ones interested in sewing and quilting. I hope it kindles fun. Joy and wonderment in them as they are learning from the very beginning what a little imagination, fabric a pattern and some time invested can become.
Last month we went to Trends in Portland and came back with over 84 bolts of new fabric, 100's of new notions and then had deliveries from Moda. a very busy month it was in deed.
We now have Elna machines in our store as well as the Handi-Quilter's.
We have many several classes coming up and hope you can join us for some of them.
April 9, 1-4:30 "Moda Love" made with a 5" Charm pack. $45.00 pattern included. Instructor is Susan Smith. *Changed to JUNE 11*
April 15, 10-12 "Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star" $20.00 with Judy Lugone This is a fun class and "pre" class for the Sewing Machine Apron class 2 weeks later, but can be taken alone.
April 21, 9:30-12:30 T-Shirt Quilt Class $35.00 with Teresa Owens. Take those souvenir T-shirts and make them into a fun Quilt.
April 23 & 30, 9:30-12:30 Paper Pieced Double Wedding Ring $50.00 with Naomi Hall. This classic beauty is great for new paper piecers.
April 25, 9:30-12:30 Hedge Hog Hot Pad and Clock class. Fun and useful Mother's Day gift idea. Taught by Kay Sargent.
April 23 & 30, 1-3:30 Beginning quilting $40 with Twila. We will use the "Falling Star" pattern.
April 25, 11:00-12:30 Antique Sewing Machine clock class. Prepare your appliqued block (12 max center design with 15" overall unfinished block size) at home, then come in to make it into a clock with Kay showing the way. Yes, this does go at the same time as part of the Hedge Hog class because assembling the cock is the same for both.
April 25 Handi-Quilter "Rental License" training begins. This $45, 2 1/2 hour 1 on 1 training will teach or re-aquaint you with the Handi-Quilter machines we have and help you learn to use the "Pro-Stitcher" computer program on our Infinity machine or Tru-Stitch on the Sweet Sixteen. These MUST be booked in advance so that I can have someone else to work the shop. You will get on average 1 hour of "hands on" time and when completed, showing understanding and knowledge of the use you will receive your "License" to rent our machines (these re so that Miss Jan, Jim or when someone else works with us they will know for sure that you have completed the training with me and can rent the machine). There will be a maximum of 2 trainings a day 2 days a week since I run the store on my own 4 days a week. Trainings that have not already been booked will be booked for Tuesdays and Fridays unless other special arrangements are made.
