We have several fun sewing projects coming up at The Studio soon. We love using the Shoe Bag when traveling to protect our shoes and our clothes in the suitcase. And what about this super cute Bucket Hat?! Make it in a variety of colors and make one for every member of the family! And how about these cute little zipper bags that are great for so many uses. Make one to hold your crochet hooks…or to put your loose items in your purse….or for a variety of items. You can make them in almost any size. These are terrific projects to use yourself and they make great gifts. Watch for these classes to be scheduled soon at The Studio.

Wow! What fun we had yesterday as we held our first Block of the Month session. We had so much interest in this project that we had to hold two sessions! A Block of the Month series offers a chance for quilters to learn new skills and techniques. It’s typically structured in a way that teaches a new block each month, for a total of 12 blocks. At the end of the year, these blocks can be sewn into a sampler quilt! Each month we will explore a different block pattern getting hands-on instruction for each block. We will be using some traditional block patterns as well as some modern ones. I can’t wait to see these beautiful quilts come together! Great work ladies. See you next month!

The Studio is introducing a new ongoing workshop. Join us on the 4th Sunday each month for our “Quilt Block of the Month” (BOM) series. This will offer a chance for beginning quilters to learn new skills and techniques and for those who have experience quilting will discover new patterns while enjoying fellowship with like-minded crafters. We will create a new block each month for a total of 12 designs. During the sessions we will also use the “Quilt As You Go” method so that at the end of the year you will have a beautiful sampler quilt! This is a great way to discover new patterns and new methods that you can apply to other projects throughout the year. Be warned though: THIS IS A FUN AND ADDICTING HOBBY!!!! LOL! (Can you tell that we are excited about this project?!)
The first block we will be making is the “String” Block. String quilts originated as a technique created by budget-conscious quilters as a perfect use for leftover scraps of fabric. It is a great way to use quilting scraps but it is also suited to purchasing fabrics that coordinate and cutting them into “strings” or using jelly rolls. We will learn to use the easy sew-and-flip technique with this block.
For this first block you can come and use “scrap” fabric that we have available. That way you can decide if you like quilting before making an investment in fabric. Then if you want to continue to join in the year long Sampler Quilt project you can pick up your own fabric featuring colors and patterns you love. Or if you are sure you are going to LOVE this (and I know you will) you can go ahead and select some fabrics to use for the project that will make a beautiful end result.
First Session Fee: $ 25 includes written instructions as well as in person instruction for the Block of the Month as well as ideas for other projects for the block. (Space is limited for our sewing sessions so register early.) Click here to register.
