Newsletter April, 2017
Well the calendar says it is, but this weather is something else. It has been for us with the Spring Fling Retreat and Kids can sew camp. Both went well, fun was had and there was a lot learned. We had 5 young ladies ages 8-13 in Kids Can Sew Camp who each made a 3 piece pillow case and a twin sized Irish Chain quilt. Way to go girls!
Have you seen or tried out the new HQ Stitch machines? The sweet little 210 is so light and portable whiole still giving you the great quality stitches you want and need to do your projects at home, at quilt group or on retreat. The 510 is a single stitch work horse! This machine is fast, true and capable of those larger heavier projects and then there is the 710.
