March classes @ Murray

We have lots of fun classes to choose from this month.  Description and details are listed below.  If you have ANY questions, please call us at 801-266-6942.  (Call the store for machine class dates and times.)

BLOCK PARTY -- We have been having a BLAST with our new Block of the Month this year.  This is a photo of the block we made for February.  Participants - do you have yours done?  Next classes will be held March 1 - 10 am or 10:30 am; March 2 - 9:30 am, 10 am or 10:30 am.  Haven't joined yet?  It's not too late.  Come join us in the fun!

SNAP BAG class -- Want a quick and easy project?  Try making a snap bag.  In fact, make two or three.  Didn't we say they were quick and easy?  Join us on March 6th at 6 pm to give it a try.  Call now to sign up!

SERGER CLUB -- Do you own a serger but don’t know how to use it?  Would you like to do more than just finish seams?  If you answered YES to either question, then come join us at the first ever Serger Club, where you will learn all about your serger by making a variety of different projects that will teach you the many techniques a serger can do.  Join us March 9th from 2 pm to 5:30 pm.

 At first, we will start with simple projects that can be completed the same day.  Each month you will work on a project in class, learning new techniques and ways to use your serger.  Taught by a Martha Pullen licensed teacher, projects will be taken from Martha Pullen curriculums and other sources so there will be a wide variety of projects for you to work on and learn from.
The first meeting will be “Getting to know your serger”.  You will learn about the features of your serger and stitches that it makes.  (ALL brands welcome.)  You will also make a sample reference workbook of stitches that you can refer back to for help.  You won’t want to miss this class!  It provides a sound foundation on which to build.  The next month, we will make 2 baby items that will be your go-to gifts any time you need a quick baby gift.  Later, we can tackle larger projects that will take 2 to 4 meetings to complete.

Kits will be available for many classes and some months you will use fabrics from your own stash.  Cost is $25 per month for the class.  The kit prices will vary depending on the project.  Kits for March will be $7. 
We are excited to open up a whole new world of sewing to you.  Sign up today and join us for the fun!

EMBROIDERY EXTRAVAGANZA -- Join us for a fun-filled day of embroidery sewing, even if you have never machine embroidered before.  Cost is just $99.99 which includes the projects, lunch, snacks and TONS of fun.  If you have an embroidery machine - sign up for the March 15 class (any brand).  If you aren't an owner, March 16 is the day for you.  Warning:  You just might become hooked! 

 SIMON'S FOLLEY --  Want to make a machine embroidery quilt but feeling intimidated?  Come and learn how to achieve your goal on Saturday, March 16 at 1 pm.  (Software pre-purchase is requited so contact the store for details.)

KNIT OR CROCHET class --  Do you want to learn how to make an aphgan or one those darling scarves that are all the rage?  Join us on March 21st at 5:30 pm to learn how to crochet or knit a project of your choice.  Beginners welcome!   

 EMBROIDERY CLUB --  Our Embroider Club will be on March 23 at 10 am this month (which is the fourth Saturday, instead of the third).  (Embroidery Extravaganza is scheduled for March 16th.)  Please help us CELEBRATE this entire year with your great ideas and time savings tips.  Remember to bring your show & tell items.  Who else can appreciate all of your hard work like a room full of  your peers?  See you there!!
