On Tuesday, July 20th at 5:30 PM and Wednesday, July 21st at 1:30 PM we will continue our monthly series “Swatter Sweaters”. These are really cute little projects that dress up the ordinary fly swatter. These Swatter Sweaters can also be made into a quilt, which many people are also doing. At the end of the year, you will have twenty-four 6.5” squares. This month features a sunny yellow star on one side and slice of watermelon on the other, perfect August afternoon fare. Sewing machine and basic tools required. Cost: $15.

On Tuesday, July 27th at 5:30 PM, as well as Wednesday, July 28th at 1:30 PM we’ll be making a Flipping Out pouch. It’s a zipper bag with a flat bottom you can put your sewing notions in, zip it up, and take it with you. It’ll stand next to your machine or wherever you want it. Great for class tools! You’ll need a sewing machine, basic sewing tools, and two (2) fat quarters. Class fee is $30 and includes pattern & notions (zippers, etc).

The last Saturday of the month, July 31st is Bag Day! If you’re unfamiliar with Bag Day you can come into the store with a pre-purchased canvas Fabric Nook bag, or purchase one in the store, and then receive 25% off your purchase for that day.

There are lots of new samples in the shop, so if you’re looking for something new be sure to come look them over.

I’m continuing to do a block a day of the very interesting That Town And Country Quilt by Susan-Claire Mayfield. I’m having so much fun with my block of the day, honestly, more than I thought I would. My quilt is growing all the time. I post a new block along with details and thoughts every day on my blog. I hope you visit my blog and check out my blocks and commentary.
