The Muse-Letter

- Our Three Muses -
It's time for  
some inspiration...
Once again, it's time to look to our 3 Muses: The Crafter, the Quilter and the Garment Maker, to see what they're up to. Perhaps you are in the middle of a sewing whirlwind, or maybe you're itching to start something new. Either way, we have just what you need.  

This week we want to give you the inspiration you need to get going, keep going or finish up your projects. 

Always Creatively Yours,

Robots and stars and moons!
Oh my!
Come by and check out these adorable new organic cottons. Great for baby blankets.
A fun and easy introduction to quilting. Make a small quilt while learning the "quilt as you go" method. You will quilt small sections of your quilt and then sew them together. Some sewing will be required outside of class. This process of quilting is great for beginner and advanced quilters alike. Machine skills necessary. 

When: November 2, 9* & 16, 4:30 - 7:30 pm 
*November 9th class is from
5 - 8pm.

Trims can dress up a plain item and give it a whole new personality! Use ribbon to create your own trims to embellish clothing, accessories and home décor. Trims and flowers can save a garment or hide imperfections. Different sewing techniques and stitches are employed to make innovative flat and dimensional trims as well as a wide variety of flowers.

This week on the blog...
There are a lot of us who haven't sewn a single stitch for a long, long time, much less make an entire garment.  Even if you sew a lot, there are bound to be times when you put the machine away for a period, moving on to other creative ventures. Or perhaps you have an extended break from your sewing routine when life got in the way. Or maybe you've had a more pleasant interruption, like a nice long vacation...
