Fall schedules are filling up! Mark your calendars for two fun projects in October: a simple Lap Throw or Wall Hanging and a cute appliqued Halloween Treat Bag. Of course, there are a multitude of alternative projects to choose from! Perhaps you would prefer to create a handy tote bag with lots of pockets, a holiday apron, or a quilt block pillow. Select a day and time for your class and register online.
Don’t forget about the fourth Thursday of each month (except holidays) for the “Sewing 4 Others” session (6-9 pm). There will not be a fee. I have a range of projects in mind: blankets or knit gowns for NICU’s or the PIC in Kent, quilts, pillowcases for foster kids, or blessing bags ~ for starters. Suggestions are welcome, too! If there are requirements or restrictions for a specific project, I will have those available. You may bring your own fabrics and there will be a selection available here. As space is limited call, email or register online.
October 19th I will be presenting a class, “Change It Up Table Runner”, at the Pacific Fabrics Bellevue store. This table runner will make paper plates look dressed-up and show off even the most elegant of table decorations. The heirloom Madeira technique is used to create the frame and decorative stitching or embroidery accents the insert. Seasonal fabrics or colors to match your place settings may be selected for the insert. Visit Pacific Fabrics (Select Classes and Bellevue) to register. This is a 3 hour class, beginning at 12:30 pm; $24 class fee.
Reminder: The holidays will be here before we know it – order your special dresses now for the many parties and pictures!
NEXT MONTH . . .
November 9th I will be presenting a class, the “Mama Mia” bag, at the Pacific Fabrics Bellevue store.

This is a 6 hour class, beginning at 10:30 am; $48.
On November 10th, Don Jensen of “Affordable Sewing Machine Service” will be here. He will demonstrate proper procedures on maintenance and service of your sewing machine. Bring your machine for cleaning and bring a list any problems you may be experiencing. Don't forget the foot pedal or power cord! The class will be from 10-1 pm; fee of $10 each. As space is limited call, email or register online. An afternoon session will be added depending on interest.
