Now that I have caught my breath, I am so ready to get back to some cool happenings here at the Stitch House. Next weekend is bustling with a number of workshops to get you moving on holiday projects and building more skills. First we have Debbie Kalenty back for a Quilting weekend. Saturday evening she will be hosting a lecture on speeding up your quilting, making sharper corners and sampling some of her tools that make the craft easier and more professional looking. Sunday morning she continues with a more, hands on workshop, teaching you how to use the V block tool. You’ll leave with a sample square made and the knowledge to go on and make a stunning quilt of your own! Some sewing experience required, fabric for sample provided, tool available for purchase.

Sunday afternoon, Lisa McFetridge is here to show you two wonderful finishing techniques. Buttons and braids!

I hope to see you –

Get to Know your SEWING MACHINE

is a 2 hour workshop to familiarize yourself with either your personal sewing machine, or ours. We’ll introduce you to the machine, including turning it on, threading it, learning the basic stitches and functions, and caring for it. You will leave this session feeling good about your beginner skills, a handy packet of information to use at home and a starter project for your first sewing class with us. Even if you aren’t taking a sewing class with us, this is a great opportunity to learn a few basics. If you are bringing your own sewing machine- bring all the pieces and the manual (if you can find it!). If you don’t own a machine, come get to know our machines. This workshop also includes taking your measurements, picking appropriate patterns and how to select fabrics and notions. $30 for one session.
