Ok ladies...pull up a chair, warm up your machines, put your foot to the pedal!
Join in on the "Two Peas Sewing Bee"! We've been having some fun and I wanted to share a little of what we have been stitching away in our Sewing Bee...
My dear friend and neighbor, Barb, has this awesome craft room in her house. A separate entrance, loads of great lighting, plenty of space and tables - she typically teaches a stamp class there. She's a Stampin Up sales rep. I've been leasing her space from her to teach my sewing classes. Most everyone in the class is a beginner, some a bit more advanced than others, and our first class we made a whole bevy of projects for beginners.
A tissue pack cover. A lanyard. Val Wells petal pouches. And a little wallet, also by Val Wells.
Our second class, we tackled applique shirts and the twirl skirt by Chelsea Anderson of Pink Fig.
There is a designer in all of you! I loved the fabrics that everyone choose. So dang cute!
AND next, in November, I'll be offering an all day "Santa's Workshop" sewing bee. We will be tackling 3 projects in one day!
We will be making an apron, like the one seen here on me (this one is a take on one of the aprons from my husbands grandmother - you can see this apron on "jane" up at Harvest Moon. I gave it to her in honor of the awesome cinnamon rolls and bagels she whips up daily).
Project 2 will be a patchwork pillow.
And number 3, a quilted table runner.
All great projects for gifts at Christmas. The pillows and table runners can be made with all kinds of manly fabrics for a boys room or a brother or Dad might like a nice throw pillow for their couch. Or some frilly fancy fabrics for a sister.
Anyway, lunch will be provided as well as some of the materials. I'll have more details later so if you are interested in one of the seats - let me know asap!
Happy Sewing all!
