Hey, Pretty People!
Good Morning! Days like today are just PERFECT for a day in the sewing room, don't you agree?
Ms. Stacey has named 2016 "The Year of the Finished Quilt". Apparently she has a few unfinished projects...DO YOU? Yea, I know, me, too! How about a little friendly competition for cleaning out the sewing room? You in? Here's how it's going to work...
Contest runs from today (May 1st) until November 1st, 2016
Goal: To get as many UFO's as possible done!
Cost: Just $5 to register as a participant in the contest
Prize: The Grand Prize Winner will receive ALL of the registration money from all contestants (10 people = $50, 20 people = $100, etc.)
30 (THIRTY!!!) beautifully coordinated Fat Quarters
The respect of all your quilting "Sistahs"
The Thrill of Having all of those UFO's DONE!
WANT TO PLAY? Stop by the shop for your registration form and a complete set of rules. Bring your "pieces parts" and $5 registration fee and let's GET STUFF DONE!
The Class Schedule is up!
Here's some awesome ways to get a leg up with some "mini" Classes for quick projects to bulk your points quickly!
Tuesday, May 10th, 5:30-7:30pm
Class Fee: $10.00
Oh, sooooo many uses! This key fob fits around your wrist and "zips" snuggly....hmmmmm, let's think about this. Free hands when you're shopping? Not feeling like you're going to lose your keys? Well, that's a good start, but how about adding a small bag to it? Wouldn't that be a wonderful thing for vacation, when you need the bare minimum of stuff and don't want to carry your purse? I'm thinking of making several of these to go with every outfit. This interesting "half a zipper" technique means that one zipper and an extra pull make TWO Fobio's (and yes, you'll get both done in class!)
Your $16.99 kit includes: Pattern, hardware, fabric, fusible fleece, coordinating fabric, zipper, extra zipper pull...enough for TWO Fobios!
Love the look of multiple colored pulls? We'll have extra pulls available to decorate up your Fobio, and enough hardware and zippers to make one for everyone you know!
And Speaking of Cute Little Bags to attach to your Fobio:
Tuesday, May 24th, 5:30-7:30pm
Class Fee: $10
This also uses the "half a zipper" technique. I'm holding it in my hand to give you an idea of size. How many uses could you think of for this? It could be attached to your Fobio, OR, how about holding sewing supplies (those Wonder Clips that end up in the bottom of your bag, for instance, or a pouch for needles).
Your $16.99 kit includes: Pattern, Coordinating fabric for outside and lining, fusible fleece, zipper and extra pull, enough for TWO peapods!
An "EXTRA ADDED BONUS" of taking either of these classes: Once you get the zipper technique down, you'll be able to fix broken zippers!
Locally Grown Placemat and Runner Class
Saturday, June 4, 10am-4pm
Class Fee: $25
What a great summertime project! Made with a panel, and with minimal quilting that can be done on your home machine, these placemats and runner will be a joy to use on your patio or in your home. Only the runner has actual "binding", the placemats are made using an "envelope technique" for ease and speed.
Friday, May 27th, 6pm-12midnight
No pictures here! Come in your most outrageous outfit to win a prize! Quilt until you Wilt!
