Flower Dance Quilt:  An Embroidery Machine Block of the Month Program
Informational meeting Wednesday Oct 18th or Saturday Oct 21st      10:00am

We are excited to introduce this new block of the month quilt from Smith Street Designs, that combines traditional piecing as well hoop embroidery.  The finished size of the quilt is 84" x 96". Two lap quilt layouts are also included. 

Each step of this 6 part program includes 1 set of embroidery designs, piecing instructions  plus a separate bonus project! The recommended hoop size for this project is 200mmxx300mm, however, the designs are divided for multi-hooping and will fit a 150mm x 240mm hoop.  

Once you have signed up, you will receive one step each month. We have scheduled one Wednesday and Saturday morning each month to demonstrate the new step. On the Wednesday class dates we will have a 30 minute demo to go over the new step and the option to bring your machines and work on your blocks in class with Sue.

Twist and Turn Napkins
These napkins make great gifts! Be bold and pair up two large scale prints, or put together two holiday themed prints. These double sided napkins are pieced and then twisted and turned, giving you a variety of looks when folded different ways. The construction of the napkins anchor the two layers of fabric so they don’t lose their shape.

Cover Hem T-shirt
In this class we will make a T-shirt on the serger and finish the hems and neckline with the cover hem. The pattern we will be using is fitted at the shoulders and falls into a more relaxed fit below the bust. You are welcome to come down and try the sample on. I can help with any pattern adjustments needed, just please call and make an appointment before the class date as the T-shirt needs to be cut out before you come to class. The pattern, Scout Tee, sizes 2-18 is included in the class fee.
