Good morning, Monday! So many people think Monday is a horrible day or crack jokes about the beginning of the week. It's a new week and an opportunity to better than you were the week before.
We are about to get our first taste of cooler weather and it is going to be awesome! My husband has been joking he will be out running with the dogs around the yard in the morning. I know that Maggie and Max are ready for the long dog days of summer to be over.
I have some fun demos coming up on Friday open sew days. The reason for that is so that we can see a new technique and may you just head on in to the classroom and work on a WIP or even begin a new project. We also have tote making, table topper and minatures. T-Shirt quilting is coming up at the end of the month, we have all of the supplies and Rochelle is ready for a fun day of piecing a fabulous top. The Free Motion quilting workshop is full, however, I will take names for a waiting list in case we have any drops.
In order to keep bringing new and fun workshops, we need your participation!
Each scheduled date we will discuss a new technique, block and tool that can greatly improve your piecing accuracy and speed when cutting. Please bring something for show n' tell, no matter your experience level, no matter the size. Let's inspire one another.
There is no charge for this program, however, RSVP is mandatory. 10/11/2019 - Log Cabins, Half Log Cabins, Courthouse Steps 10/18/2019 - Half Square Triangles, Making perfect pinwheels. 1 0/25/2019 - Striopology, cutting faster, smarter and more accurately.
This will be the final meeting of the year! We will finish with a gorgeous strip set and pattern that I chose earlier in the year. Remember, you receive your strips and the pattern. What you do with the background and borders are up to you. That's where all the fun of strip club comes in because when we get back together it will blow you away at all of the differences between each quilt! Cost: $ 39.99 (I GAVE DEADLINES FOR PAYMENT AND RSVP SO THAT I COULD ORDER STRIPS.) If you would like to join, you are welcome, however, I will need you to pay at the door and your strips and pattern will be ordered. Patterns and strips are available up front for those who paid in advance.
No pattern? That's right.

You will also learn about making cushy straps and boxing the bottom. Pockets, inside, outside---whatever you want. a zipper? ok, let's do it. There is no pattern for this class, we will be freestylin' and that often makes the best bag.
