Beginning sewing with Carolyn – Fleece Jacket
Fleece jackets are wonderful this time of year.  Carolyn will help you modify a pattern to fit just right.  When you call to sign up, make sure to get the suggested pattern numbers.  This is a 2-part class, beginning February 7 at 5:30 and continuing February 21 at 5:30.  Come and learn some new skills with a sewing machine.  If you don't own a machine, we have some classroom ones that you can use.   Cost is $20 plus supplies.

Aprons Aplenty – Sweetheart Apron
Come create this retro apron just in time for Valentine’s Day.  We will be using lots of fun sewing techniques; making our own piping (how nice not to be limited to what is on the store shelves), gathering ruffles, learning to insert godets.  Needless to say, this is a class for those who have a solid sewing foundation.  Be sure to ask for the supply list when you sign up.  Cost is $15 for class and $8 for the pattern.  The class will be held on February 11 from 11-2. 

Knit/Crochet class
Our talented teacher, Ann, can show you how to knit or crochet.  She can even help you read Grandma's old knit hat pattern.  Come give us a try for just $10 per class.  In February, we are meeting on February 20 (5:30-7:30).

Embroidery Club
Want some new ideas for machine embroidery or want to share what you have made?  Join us on February 15 for our Embroidery Club.  We love to see what you have been doing, so don’t forget your show & tell.  We have fun ideas in store for you too.  Anyone can attend - you don't even have to own an embroidery machine, but we want to warn you - after you see all of the fun things you can do, you will want one.  Check out of Facebook page to see what everyone brought in January.
