Sharynn’s Stitching Friends. The next meeting will be Saturday, November 8, 2014 at 9:00 am. Be sure and bring Show and Tell.                                                                            

We have switched the date of the Stitching Friends meetings back to the second Saturday of each month.

The new “Sit and Sew” Club has been a big hit! Be sure and stop in and sign-up if you haven’t already.  It will meet the second Tuesday of each month from 1:30 – 3:30pm (please note this is a time change from evenings to afternoons) for 12 months. Club requires purchase of the book “Simply Charming Seasons” and $5 for each session you participate in. The book features a different wall quilt for each month of the year. You will have the opportunity to purchase a kit for each month containing the fabrics featured in the store sample OR you can choose to purchase fabrics of your choice at a 20% discount OR use fabrics from your stash. Simply sign up for the month’s session, bring your machine and “sit and sew”!

The next quilt will be Christmas Snowmen. It is on display in the shop so be sure and stop by and take a peek! If you want a kit like the store sample, let us know when you register for that month’s session and your kit will be ready at Sit and Sew.

NOTE: Pre-registration and signup will be required for each month’s session. You do not have to sign up for all 12 months.

SWEET SIXTEEN CLASS – In this class, we will start at the beginning with basting your tops and end with the binding. In the middle, we will learn how to achieve the perfect stitch/tension.

HELP make hospital stays as pleasant as possible for chronically ill children. Join ConKerr Cancer (Riley Hospital) in their mission to brighten the lives of sick children in hospitals through homemade pillowcases. Making a pillowcase is easy, rewarding and it can have a positive impact on a child in need. You can help by making a cheerful pillowcase, donate fabric or other sewing materials, or donate funds to help in the purchase of supplies. Sharynn’s Quilt Box is a designated drop off point for finished pillowcases. If you want to participate, drop by today for further details and a free pattern for the pillowcase along with directions on laundering and packaging. If you can’t make a pillowcase and want to help, stop by for information on donating materials and/or money for materials.
