12 Weeks of Christmas

Beginning October 6th there will be 12 weeks until Christmas. To help our sewing friends get ready for holiday sewing we're hosting a 12-week gift making demo program. Some of the projects are great "stash busters", helping us to utilize those scraps that are just to good to give away. Some will have you dusting off your serger to utilize it to its fullest capacity.

Each session is $5.00 for the lecture-demo handouts. Would you like to "stay and play"? Awesome. Purchase materials for the project that day and stay to sew your project. Bonus-Each session will include a drawing for a $5 gift certificate. All sessions begin at 10am and last roughly up to 30 minutes.

October 20th- Cell Phone Stand- Our phones aren't just used for calling anymore. This project is a handy one to hold your phone while watching videos or reading. With some modifications it can be made to the size of a tablet. 

October 27th-The Pop Up- These are so cute! We stock the springs in 5 different sizes. Perfect for corralling all your small things on a desk or nightstand. Plus learn some techniques on sewing in circles.

November 3rd- Serger Blanket- We're bringing out the serger again! We are stitching up a blanket using some decorative thread to give a great finish on the edge of our blanket.

November 10th- Stitchin with Vinyl- Learn how to apply vinyl on to your fabric and make coasters in a jiffy. We'll also give you tips and techniques to make these even more personal with printing images onto fabric.

November 17th- Travelling Pillow- Here's a fun way to use some of those fat quarters. Plus get some pointers on perfect point connections when sewing. 

November 24th- Insulated Curling Iron/Flat Iron Case- How many times have you carried out your curling iron separately out of the hotel when traveling, waiting for it to cool? This case is great, slip it in and the inside lining is heat resistant allowing it to stow away safely while cooling off. 

December 1st- Fabric Oragami- Some times simply folding fabric gives your project a whole new look. The technique we will demo allows you to show case your fabrics in a fun way. You're not limited to a basic square! Come and see the fun things we've made with this technique.

December 15th- Spa Accessories- It starts with the rice bag, but what else can you do with this. Come see some great little "self care" projects. 

December 22nd- Sewing in the round- Learn how to make a water bottle holder and with a couple of modifications turn it into a wine bottle/ gift bag.
