A Productive Weekend

What did you do this weekend?  I had a very productive three days, Saturday was spent in my official lounging gear creating this beauty for next Saturday's 2 Hour Tulip Bag

This is a standard size bag, we will be making the next size up which supposedly you can fit a volleyball into. I had great fun making it and guess what, it only took 2 hours!  We have 3 spaces left so give us a call or text me. The class is on Saturday from 12:00 to 3:00 or thereabouts.  You will need 1 yard of fabric for handles and outside of bag and 1 yard of fabric for the interior.  You will also need 2/3 of yard of pellon fusible fleece and 1/2 yard of pellon decor bond for interfacing.  The shop has fusible fleece and decor bond so don't panic if you don't have any.

We are running two workshops in November, you can either come for a half day or a full day and we will be creating some fun and quick gifts for family and friends.  Here is one of the items that I created for the craft day and it is made using 1/2 yard of christmas fabric and some Soft and Stable wadding.  This is really fun to make and super fast, what a great way to package some of your home baking as a gift for a neighbor or teacher!
Before the string is added to the top 

The bucket handle can be rotated backward and forward for easy filling and easy emptying!

Today we had great fun with our introductory Applique class, as always there were alot of laughs and some serious comsumption of chocolate chip cookies.  We are very lucky to have such a great group of customers and that they bring their joy of quilting to every session!
We are getting ready for the Knit n Stitch show at the RDS the first of November thru the fourth.  We will be located in Booth N11 which is ironic since that is the location of our home and shop!!
Happy Sewing!

  3. Hi Annemarie - a wonderful productive weekend for you but are you vying with Fiona for the title of best sweatshop last weekend? But maybe I should clarify that it is my sweat not hers - more wonderful ideas and things to tempt us all with. Mairéad
