January 8, 2018
I hope everyone has had a great "Creative" start to 2018. No matter what your projects are - this colder weather keeps you inside and hopefully is giving you time to check some things off your list. I've been in Florida, but before you boo-hoo me I want you to know that I'm here without a coat and it's been as low as 29 degrees. Admittingly, it's not the same as 5 below zero - but without a coat - there is not much outside time here either. So a tan is not in my near future. Thus giving me time to reflect on my own projects and quilting bucket list.
We have so many classes planned for you this year. Block Party is this Friday and we are making Postcards - After all it is coming up on Valentines Day and there just might be a "special someone" that needs a special card. Later this month is a Valentine Table Runner, A new Monogram Pillow session is coming up on the 18th, a Beginner Ruler Work class, Nancy is sharing her great technique for Machine Binding your quilts quickly and Lois is making the Modern Attic Window. For those that enjoy hand work, we have added a new Hand Applique Class for Beginners - this is a multi-session class that Begins tomorrow so sign-up quick!
FYI- Be on the look out for Tuesday Morning Open Sews begins in February and on-going. Each Tuesday at 10am - Join us and enjoy the company of like minded sewists and quilters. Get advice on projects you are working on or maybe your block of the months. In addition, We are adding Tuesday Evening Classes - so if you know someone that wants to take classes after work - have them join a class on Tuesday Evenings.
