Get ‘er Done Workshop: Pat Clark, Shirley Swenson and Connie Brewer have offered to act as mentors for members who have some UFOs lurking in the closet. If you keep stumbling over a Hunter Star, a New York Beauty, a Judy Niemeyer Seasonal Table Runner or a Kim Diehl Invisible Applique wall hanging, and you need a nudge to get back at it, here is your opportunity to pick the brain of someone’s who’s been there, done that. Bring ANY UFO that needs work, your sewing supplies, and you will get support and friendly camaraderie.
Denim Vests: This has been moved to March.
Free Motion Thread Painting: Te Pabon and Erika Assimus have something new up their sleeves and guess what! They’re willing to share it with us. Have no idea what thread painting is? Well, just maybe Te and Erika will bring some samples to our December Get Together. If you are interested in this, or any of the other workshops, sign up with Marie.
- Instructors suggest batiks, but any cotton fabric is fine:
- One 14” x 14” background fabric
- One 8” x 8” green fabric for stem and leaves
- Two 9” x 9” squares ~ a main and an accent color for flower
- One 14” x 14” iron-on stabilizer of choice
- One 18” x 12” piece of freezer paper
Iron stabilizer onto background fabric before class
You will also need to bring your sewing machine, matching threads, 80/12 needle, scissors, fabric glue, pencil/pen, darning foot or stitch regulator, bobbins.
Have questions? Please contact Te or Erika directly. Ready to register? Please contact Kim Warren.
Charm Squares: Ideas and Demonstrations: Sue Stepp
Okay so Pat Clark has us all cutting fabrics into squares and they are beginning to pile up. Want to get some ideas on how to transform those 6-1/2” darlings into actual somethings? Well, Sue Steep understands your pain and is here to show you the way.
Purses: Anna Wang is willing to guide us in our quest for getting back to our “girly girl” days. There are times for our L.L.Bean totes, and there are times for our sweet little purses. Here’s our opportunity to make one of those glamour bags just for us. Maybe Anna can have one available in December to make us drool. Call or email Marie to sign up.
