Look what Robin made! A queen size "Colorsplash" quilt! We have kitted this beauty without borders. The kit is $135.
Showing optional borders.
I had to try my hand at "Colorsplashing" This is a very interesting process. Here is my wall hanging quilt top. I will add a few borders too. I like this cool colorway. Ofcourse all the fabrics in Robin's quilt and my wall hanging are Kaffe Fassett.
We will be vending at the Bennington Quilt Fest this weekend, September 13th and 14th. We will be offering our kits and fabric bundles as well as our Bernina sewing machines. If you are in the area, stop by and say hi! The shop will be open regular hours with Judith and Faith at the helm.
Our schedule of classes is shaping up! On Friday, September 19th and Saturday, September 20th we will be offering a free Beginner class. You may use one of our sewing machines and all of our quilting tools. The project is a simple "Easy Peasy" Table Runner.
Here is a happy beginner showing off her first quilting project! The class will cover all the techniques and methods needed to complete a whole quilted project. This is a 2 day class from 10am-1 pm each day. Do you know someone who is new to quilting and would like to try it? Just have them call the store 802-824-5700.
For our experienced quilters, I will be teaching "Shimmer".
This is a terrific process and does not have a published pattern yet so I will be teaching the technique in 2 classes for each session. The first session will be held on Thursday, October 16th and Thursday, October 23rd from 10:30am-3pm . The second session will be held on Thursday, November 6th and Thursday, November 13th. Same times. The cost of the workshops is $50 plus the cost of materials. Call the shop for more details and to register. There is a maximum of 6 students per session.
Scheduled for Fridays, September 26th and running for 6 weeks until Friday, October 31st we will be offering a "Sew Gifts and Accessories" series. These will be 4 hour classes with a break for lunch each day. Participants will learn how to make a "Lilly Apron", a tote with coordinating zippered pouches and more clever sewing projects perfect for gifting. The cost of this 6 week series is $75 for the 6 class sessions. Call the shop for more info and to register. 802-824-5700. This class is for advanced beginners and up. ( You must know how to sew on your own sewing machine.)
Here are some happy sewist's with their first tote bag! During these classes many new tools and techniques will be demonstrated to enhance your sewing experience. We hope you will join us for one of our classes!
That's all for now!
