Sit n Sew Oct 14

Another well attended Sit n Sew was held October 14 with 19 participants and a visitor who brought more three quilt tops.  An industrious group enjoyed  socializing, sewing and nibblies.  The following items were done:
3 fleece blankets
9 tops
3 completed quilts of comfort
13 Christmas stockings
Assorted personal projects
The next Sit n Sew will be in the Spring of 2018. We will post the date once it has been confirmed.
Thanks to everyone for their participation, and help with set up and clean up.

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.
