1) ~ FEATHERWEIGHT CLUB
Sew many of our customers have one or more of these little darlings ~
Singer Featherweight 221 machines from the 1930's to the 1960's.
I look sew forward to those gatherings! We have quite a few mini patterns and kits available now for anyone interested in working on one of them from home. Our next gathering will be Saturday, October 15, from 10-5. We'll be making an autumn table runner. I've designed it and hope to have it made in time to put a picture and price in next week's email. No special ruler needed. Bring your 'Whacker' if you have one, and some Best Press.
Saturday, October 15 10-5 Kit Fee $29.95 $5
2) HOT TIN ROOF Sue Nichols loves to play with weird fabrics! She gets her hands on things that no one else knows what to do with and makes something fun! She designed the quilt Hot Tin Roof from the striped fabrics we ordered and Meg and I are busy writing and illustrating the pattern. Sue has a class scheduled for this that will be FUN and EASY!! Hope you can join her!!! Your choice of our striped fabrics!
