Happy June and Welcome Summer!!!
Back in March, Tammy Lewis called me and said "remember how we always said we wanted to go somewhere and take a class from Sue Spargo"?? So we are leaving this Saturday to take a class from Sue, in the Mediterranean, on the Holland American cruise line, on a 12 day cruise! We fly to Rome and have a 3 day tour there before the cruise. We will go to Spain, France, Monte Carlo and then back to Italy. We have 9 excursions in various cities. Along with a class from Sue, we will take a class with Liza Prior Lucy and Jillian Travis from the UK. We fly back on the 25th. What a trip of a lifetime! Two of the classes are by hand (wool applique and English paper piecing) and the other is a fusible applique with painting so there are no sewing machines involved. It makes it easy to pack hand needles! The rest of the packing not so much! Clothes, shoes, swim wear, hats, etc... I hope my suitcase does not exceed the weight limit!! If I can figure out internet I will try to post some pictures on facebook. So while I am cruising, Happy Quilting to you! Pam

Foundation Piecing with Toni
June 11th, 15th and 25th
The Wrapsody is an ongoing class for those who started it last month. Toni will help anyone who would like to start to make one if you missed last month. This is a perfect bag to stay organized! Unique features include: 3 zippered-pocket dividers, 1 zippered exterior pocket, 3 or more loyalty - credit card holders & 4 separate and roomy interior compartments. It can be used as a cross body or shoulder style. We think it would be great for sewing supplies or as a make up bag also. It is 10" x 5.5" x 6.5" tall. Pattern is $12.99.
Toni is available on any of those days to help you with any of her foundation pieced patterns.
Stripes and Stars Pillow with LaRee
Celebrate Flag Day by coming in to make a quick patriotic pillow (or wall hanging). We will have kits for our version available to make the top for $15.00 which include the pattern by Moda.
Machine Quilting with Teresa
June 17th and 18th
Teresa is going to teach you the basics of quilting with your own machine! Dropping your feed dogs and going for it does not have to be a scary thing again! This class will give you all the confidence you need. Whether you want to learn to machine quilt or take a refresher, Teresa has some great techniques she will share. You can purchase a panel for $5.00 that will be perfect to practice on.
We find hand stitching to be very therapeutic for the soul, even more so with friends! Bring whatever hand work you are working on whether it is a wool project, embroidery or simply have a quilt to bind. No skill is required. We can all share ideas and techniques and learn from each other!
