.Welcome to Stitcher's Playhouse
----a place where sewing is fun!
The groundhog fooled us all into thinking we’d have an early spring! But that hasn’t kept us from thinking about those warm, sunny days that will soon be here.
We always enjoy coming up with fun projects to make for summer. You will find a variety of garments, several bags, and a quilt or two to get your creative juices flowing. Of course, there are those favorite “how to” classes if you want to learn to sew, quilt, or get friendly with your serger.
Each time a new shipment of fabric arrives in the shop, we can’t wait to find something to make! By far, the most popular fabric this spring has been the chevron print. Our first class in May, the Emmaline Halter Dress, is perfect for this geometric print. Or select two or three coordinating fabrics for Jeanne’s Dressed For Summer Fun play outfit.
Carey is back to teach several of her favorite projects. You’ll love the look of the Tie-Back Sundress and how easy it is to fit. Then there’s the versatile design of Macy Giggles. It’s a dress or you can make it as a top to wear with shorts, capris or ruffle pants. Want to learn all about pants? Be sure to sign up for Carey’s Ruffle Pants class.
Quilting continues to be a popular pastime for many of our customers. Jeanne selected nautical-themed fabrics for her Wave Quilt that is done in strips. Linda is making appliquéd circles again with her Frolicking Bubbles Quilt. Brightly-colored fabrics make this quilt a summer delight!
We have gotten excited about bags again since finding a new interfacing product by Bosal. Check out Linda’s Barbados Bag class. The “hands free” design makes it perfect for shopping or traveling. Jeanne will be teaching the Carole Ann Tote—a larger bag that can also be a great beach tote.
While making a dress for her newest granddaughter, Jeanne wanted a matching panty. That’s when she remembered the Double Seat Panty pattern by Ginger Snaps. The bias panel in the seat gives a great fit and is the perfect place for a monogram or embroidery.
You can never have too many burp cloths when there’s an infant in the family. Learn how to make Linda’s favorite Baby Burp Cloth. They also make great gifts! In another fun class Linda will show you how to make cute Tooth Fairy Pillows. Every child needs one.
We hope your summer is filled with fun activities with family and friends and that you find some time to come and sew at Stitcher’s Playhouse!
