New Product

We're now stocking Kraft-Tex. It’s heavy paper that looks, feels, and wears like leather. It sews, cuts, and washes like fabric. The book shown here has 27 great projects using this new product. Cindy will teach the tri-color tote bag class on Saturday, July 2. Come by to check out Kraft-Tex!

Sewing and Quilting Classes

Professional Tote
Friday and Saturday, May 20 & 21, 2016

10:00 a.m. – 5 p.m. both days
$39, pattern required

This tote features so many pockets, compartments, and zippers that you’ll be the best organized person on your block when you carry it. Big enough to hold a laptop computer, tablet, or good old-fashioned books. Outside pockets on each end are great for a water bottle, umbrella, or phone. This is a two-day class for intermediate and above sewists. In order to complete your tote during the class you will need to do your cutting and fusing ahead of time. LouAnn Burkett – who has now made at least four of these – will be your teacher. Sign up today!

Evening Make & Take
Vinyl Mesh Market Bag
Friday, May 27, 2016
6 - 9 p.m.
$18, plus pattern ($3.99)

We've had requests for LouAnn to teach the Vinyl Mesh Market Bag class again, and this time it's an Evening Make & Take. Join us for a fun end-of-the-week sewing night where you'll learn a number of tips, tricks, and modifications that LouAnn has made to this handy tote bag. The vinyl mesh is easy to work with and all the rage at the moment. Sign up today as the class is limited to eight students.
