.Welcome to Stitcher's Playhouse
----a place where sewing is fun!
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.
For both our new and experienced quilters, we are repeating several popular classes. If you want to learn to quilt, be sre to check out Jeanne’s Basics of Quilting Class. And Linda is back with her sold-out T-shirt Quilt Class. Later in the summer, Jeanne will have a class on a new contemporary quilt designed by Art Gallery’s Pat Bravo called Pattern Play.
There’s also a fun Placemat Class with your choice of shapes. It’s nice to know you don’t have to settle for a boring rectangle!
We enjoy doing bag classes and always look for those unique projects to share. Jeanne found the Perillo Bag by Sara Lawson that is perfect to carry all those summer necessities. Mary is back to teach her popular Duffle Bag. We also want to welcome Kathy Wilkins who will be teaching the fun “On the Go” Wallet.
We are happy to announce that Kid’s Camp returns this year, thanks to Carey Haney. She will be teaching girls ages 10 to 13 how to sew while making a fun reversible tote bag. Be sure to call right away because these June and July camps are sure to fill quickly.
It’s not often you can get a head start on Christmas. We are doing our best to help you with our “Christmas in August” classes. Jeanne’s Quilted Christmas Stockings and Tree Skirt, Kathy’s Christmas Tree Table Runner, and Linda’s “Quillo” will have you in the Christmas spirit before you know it!
If you know someone who wants to learn to sew, don’t forget to tell them about our always popular Beginning Sewing Class. There’s one in June and another one in August.
Now that the lazy days of summer are almost here, I hope you find time to attend several classes and keep your sewing machine humming!
