Upcoming Sit ‘n Sew and Days for Girls

As there was so much interest in the serged liners for the Days for Girls kits, Senora has tested out the pattern and prepared a demo for Sit ‘n Sew – August 19th at Living Faith Presbyterian Church, Baxter.

If you’re interested in sewing up some liners, please bring your serger along to Sit ‘n Sew. If you have any appropriate flannel you are willing to donate, please bring that along, too. The flannel CANNOT have animals, people, bugs, snakes, camo, military, flags or words and cannot be yellow. It should be a medium or dark colour or print to help disguise stains and should be pre-washed.

There are a few steps in the construction process that require a regular sewing machine, so even if you don’t own a serger, you will be able to help out.

As always, bag kits will be available also.

Days for Girls Sewists!

Attention Days for Girls bag sewists ! We’ve been advised that there is a bit of a change to the construction of the bags. In future, the bags will be cut a bit larger, but we’ve gotten the OK to use the kits we have cut.

 For now, there is a change to how the side seams are to be sewn. If you view the pattern information below, the side seams are to begin 1″ below the bottom of the casing and are to be reinforced when the casing side hems are sewn. The casings are sewn down  separately on each side (not in a continuous circle).

Donna will have revised patterns available for the June meeting, or contact her if you have any questions.

 Thanks for you continued support !
