The classes in our new schedule begin with winter and end with the promise of warm weather as we look forward to Easter and spring.
Bonnie starts off the month of January with her Snowman Lucy jumper complete with skiing snowman appliqué. Nothing says “keep me warm” like a plush minkee blanket. Jeanne shows you how you cut strips--then sew them down in a “stitch and flip” method to make this favorite project. You just might have to make more than one if your family won’t share!
We are happy to have Maryanna teaching the Treasure Pocket Skirt and Carey the Abigail dress from Kwik Sew that is perfect for older girls. Other dresses you’ll love making are “Penny”, a knit dress from ModKids, Olive Ann Designs’ “Urban Princess Dress”, and the Bow Collar Peasant Dress.
Jeanne will be repeating her Yoke Dress Class for those who are ready to learn about collars, sleeves, and skirt plackets. You can also use this dress for Beginning Smocking, Picture Smocking, or the Madeira Applique Hem Class.
Our schedule would be incomplete without our standards—Jeanne’s Beginning Sewing Class and Linda’s Serger Class. Linda will also be repeating her Hourglass Burp Pad and Barbados Bag classes that were sell-outs the last time around.
Quilts continue to be popular with our customers. If you want to learn how, be sure to sign up for Jeanne’s Basics of Quilting Class. Then there’s her Chopsticks Quilt that features triangles and beautiful batik fabrics. Completing our quilt series will be Linda’s T-Shirt Quilt Class. We have had many requests for this class and are happy to finally have it on the schedule!
We are excited to announce another Block-of-the-Month Program beginning in February. Be sure to see the details on the back of the Newsletter.
For those of you who are Downton Abbey fans, you’ll want to make one of the beautiful tote bags that will be the envy of all your friends. A limited number of kits are available for the class, so be sure to sign up early.
We are continuing our Aurifil Thread Color of the Month special. You’ll receive 25% off the designated color. So check our Aurifil display each month to see which color is discounted!
There are several Fridays each month where you can come and “Sit and Sew” with Bonnie. Finish an old project or get help starting a new one. Check the enclosed schedule for dates and times.
Stitcher’s Playhouse opened in February 2005 by best friends, Ann Barnett and Jeanne Sanders Phipps. It is located less than a mile from downtown Smyrna in a yellow house that was Ann’s childhood home. Once inside the shop, customers see the love of fabric in all the projects on display. Children’s garments that once were the primary focus of the Stitcher’s Playhouse have been joined by a large selection of quilting fabrics, books and patterns. In addition, the shop offers a wide range of classes for all skill levels—from beginner to advanced. Class size is limited to six people so everyone is assured of receiving personal instruction. Visit the shop and be inspired to create something beautiful!
