Even though Spring arrived yesterday so did the SNOW!  So another few days of soup for us.  And what do you need for your soup bowl…a bowl cozy.  Get rid of those hideous dish towels to hold your hot soup bowl.  We have these cute bowl cozies now.  Don’t you want to make one?  This class is coming soon at The Studio.  Join us Thursday, April 5th at 6 pm to make two cozies.  Click here to register.

One of the most FUN ways to learn to sew is to make a Rag Quilt….which is just what we did at The Studio yesterday afternoon.  Just sewing straight lines has never been so cool!!!  Look at what you can make even if you have NEVER used a machine before.  We can help you be so creative.  Why not give it a try?  We have another class coming up on Sunday, February 25th.  And the best part is you don’t have to bring anything…just show up and we’ll have it all ready to go for you.  Click here to register.

Sunflower Quilts

Yesterday we made Sunflower Rag Quilts at The Studio.  What a beautiful project.  Everyone’s looks different as they all selected their fabrics.  This is a little more advanced than our beginner Rag Quilt (you can register for the next beginning rag quilt here) so you need a little experience to sew the flower.  We’ll be doing it again at the first of the year.  We are thinking of a daisy…either white or a pink gerber!

Rag Quilts!

Rag Quilt 2.jpgWe had so much fun making Rag Quilts on Sunday at The Studio.  Where else can you learn to make a Rag Quilt and walk away with a finished product in just 3 hours???!!!!  Great job everyone.  And you asked for it so here it is….another one scheduled on January 8th.  And the best part….all the fabrics are flannel with Cats or Dogs motif.  You know I LOVE these.  Register early because we are very limited in space for these workshops.  Click here for more info and to register for the January 8th workshop.

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.

Beautiful Quilts

Rag Quilt 9th.jpgThese ladies had a great time making Rag Quilts yesterday at The Studio.  And yes, we all made and entire lap quilt in one afternoon.  All that’s left is to wash it several times to let the edges “rag” and soften it it.  Nice job!
