New week

Well, we are all fresh as a daisy and ready to enjoy a new week. Well no, not really, we have decided we are all way too hot, totally over summer and wishing for some cooler much nicer for hand sewing.

It has been lovely having lots of visitors to the shop in the last week as classes and sewing days resume for 2013, and we have already had lots of new projects to sticky beak.
Our Tuesday and Friday sewing groups have both had their first gatherings for the year and at first glance it looks like we are going to have lots of really beautiful finished quilts to look at as the year progresses.

Tuesday sewing

All of our classes for first semester are filling quickly and there are only a few classes with places remaining. We have a few places in Margaret McDonald's Woven Burgoyne on May 12th, and several free spots for Harmony on June 23rd.

Woven Burgoyne May 12th.

Harmony June 23rd.
These classes are such a great way to spend a Sunday so if you would like to join us for a day of sewing, fun, yummy food & great company just give us a call at the shop and we can give you all the details.
3 titles by Jo Morton
Today we had a delivery of books from Jo Morton. These books are self published by Jo and wow...they are such nice books, beautifully printed with clear instructions for both appliqué and piecing.
They are a great price at $29.50 and best of all will be great as a gift idea for sewing friends because they have projects for all skill levels.

And most important of all...Kurt and Sammy say a big hi to all.
