20170523_053913We had the second part of our Quilted Table Runner class last night.  They are looking great!  Everyone promised to send a photo of their finished products. (They took them home for binding.)  I can’t wait to see them but you can get a good idea here with Amber’s.  It looks beautiful and we all had a really good time working together.  Great work ladies!

20170103_052651.jpgI made an agreement with myself to get The Studio straightened up on my final couple of days off.  Since the space is small we really have to keep it organized in order to be able to find the things we need to work.  And that is hard to do when there are so many people there creating cool things each week.  But we can do it!  So yesterday I took everything out of storage areas and decided what goes and what stays.  What a mess.  But it’s coming along.  I don’t know about you but I am more creative when my studio space is organized.

Look at my new toy!  Thanks Sandra for telling me about this little jewel and for riding out with me to pick it up  yesterday.  Did  I need another sewing machine….well, probably not as I have four plus two embroidery machines…but really, can you ever have enough of these old Singers if they are operational?  And this one is but she’s going over to an expert machine maintainer to get a little cleaning and tune up.

I did some research on her last night and think I’ve learned that it’s a 1950’s model that is about 3/4 of the size of the average machine at that time.  My only confusion on this one is that it says “Made in Great Britain” on the top of the machine but the serial plate says “Made in Canada”.  What???  Got to learn more about that.  I wonder if the plate has been replace??  We’ll see what the expert says.  Anyway, it will come in real handy for the upcoming sewing classes that we have scheduled at The Studio.  Check out the quilt class here and the Simple Poncho class here.

Tulip Stitch

Now that the weather is cooling off it’s time to think about picking up some needlework.  I love to crochet when it gets cold outside.  So I have been working on some ideas for crochet classes for The Studio.


Crochet Infinity

Beginner’s Class Infinity Scarf

We will have a Beginning Crochet Class on October 25th.  You can get  more information on that here.  The great thing about this class is that you will not only learn to crochet but you will actually make a beautiful infinity scarf.  Just ask some of the ladies who took this class last year.  I created a few “monsters” as they made dozens of scarves that all of their friends are now enjoying.


We will announce a few other crochet classes soon – one that will include how to work more advanced stitches and joining them like this Tulip Stitch afghan.  Watch for it.
