Summer is almost over and school is approaching quickly. With that in mind I have selected two fun projects for September: a darling multi-tiered Skirt and a cute Zipper 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.
I have been long wanting to include a session focused on sewing for those less fortunate. So, beginning in September, the third Thursday evening session (6-9 pm) of each month will be “Sewing 4 Others”. There will not be a fee for this session. I have a range of projects in mind: blankets for NICU’s or PIC in Kent, quilts for Project Linus or Quilts of Valor, 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 at old2newheirlooms.com.
For a second year, I will have a booth at the Quilt Show at the Enumclaw Expo September 28th and 29th, 10 am -4 pm. The majority of my inventory for that show will be fabrics: fat quarters, ½ and 1 yard cuts with a few “made” items mixed in. Presented by the Crystal Quilters of Enumclaw, this is a juried show with an abundance of superb quilts on display, plus an assortment of vendors. Admission is $6; bring a non-perishable food item & receive a fat quarter from Crystal Quilters. The featured Quilter will be Cathy Dormaier.
Holiday Gift Idea: a Memory Pillow created from a loved one’s shirt. The pillow itself is made of quality fabrics allowing it to be imminently huggable! Personalization on the back of the pillow includes the name and dates plus a saying or favorite verse. Contact me for further details.
