October/November News

Tina is having shoulder surgery on Oct. 21 so our schedule is a little different for October and November.

We have Christmas fabric out and it’s beautiful. We also have some terrific new flannel quilt kits and samples.

On Tuesday, October 5th at 5:30 PM and Wednesday, October 6th at 1:30 PM we’ll have [UFO], or Unfinished Objects OR Zip-Up Pouch (We will offer this again next week). This is a great time to bring in a stray project or something from class and complete it. For the Zip-Up Pouch, you will need a sewing machine with a zipper foot if you have one, and 3 coordinating fat quarters. We will provide the stiff interfacing and zipper. Cost for Zip-Up Pouch class is $20.

On Tuesday, October 12th at 5:30 PM, as well as Wednesday, October 13th at 1:30 PM We have the Zip-Up Pouch. This is really a fun project. It zips into a 3-D rectangular box, and when you unzip it pops open into a tray. You will need a sewing machine with a zipper foot if you have one, and 3 coordinating fat quarters. We will provide the stiff interfacing and zipper. Cost for Zip-Up Pouch class is $20.

On Tuesday, October 19th at 5:30 PM, as well as Wednesday, October 20th at 1:30 PM we’ll have another [UFO], or Unfinished Objects OR 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 doing instead. At the end of the year, you will have twenty-four 6.5” squares. For October, we’re raking leaves and chasing the turkey for Thanksgiving. Sewing machine and basic tools required. Cost: $15.

On Tuesday, October 12th at 10:30 AM there will be a Wool Appliqué class.

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.
