Good Tuesday to you all! It may be overcast and a little drizzly but there's still fun to be had at Open Sew Day here. I personally have some binding to get done and a block I have been working on needs some finishing touches. I have been thinking about making a tote bag or two...I just love them and enjoy the satisfaction of instant gratification on small projects.

Here are the classes and workshops coming up!

If you are doing the Dear Diary Quilt Sew Along, consider the Tucker Trimmer I and the Wing Clipper I Workshop for skill building!


TUCKER TRIMMER 1 - THE BASICS
Trish Acreman, Leader
Saturday
February 22, 2020
10:00 a.m.

Whether you own it or not, it''s time to use it! It is a must have tool.
The Tucker Trimmer tool was designed to help quilter?s quickly and easily trim down units that are made with triangles: half square triangle squares, quarter square triangle squares (hourglass units), and combinations of half square and quarter square triangle squares (combination units). It has multiple diagonals which allow you to align ruler guide lines with unit seam lines to quickly locate the exact center of pieced units. This makes trim down easy,precise, and perfect every time. No more figuring, or guessing, or struggling to find a center point.

THIS IS A PACKAGE CLASS! Ruler, fabric kit and instructor fee
are bundled at $59.99

WING CLIPPER 1
Saturday
February 29, 2020 at 10:00 a.m.

The Wing Clipper is a must have tool if you are making Flying Geese units for your quilt. This tool, and the associated Fast Flying Geese construction technique, allow you to make four finished units from five squares. The best part is that each unit is constructed slightly oversized so each can be trimmed to a perfect size with perfect seam placement once the sewing and pressing are complete by using the Wing Clipper tool. You can see the tool in action on our free online video demonstration below. Every single unit will be exactly right every time. Now who ever thought that would happen with Flying Geese units?!?!

PRINTING ON FABRICS
SATURDAY
FEBRUARY 22, 2020 AT 10:00 AM
$25.00

Spend an morning with Sandi and learn about making quilt labels, photos and adding text for printing on to fabric using an inkjet printer. This technique can be helpful to those who do not want to write out quilt labels or if you want to add something special like a photo, etc. We will also cover making photos with text overlays for printing and using in stand alone projects or as a quilt block.

Skill Level:
Beginner

Skill Details:
This is a technical class and not a sewing class. We will be working with designing and printing, not sewing the label to the quilt (that's an entirely it's own subject matter).

Requirements:
Please bring a flash drive sometimes known as a usb driver or a thumb drive. You will receive a sheet of paper/fabric to print on but you may want to save your design for later use.

If you have a laptop, please bring it!
Many more classes, groups and events can
be found on the website!
