The next Club meetings will be held on Tuesday May 2, at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m.; and Saturday, May 6 at 10 a.m. Jesse and Jamie will be your presenters. We will have sewn, serged and embroidered items to share. Club members are always encouraged to bring their show-and-tell items, whether it pertains to any theme we have going or not. We love to see what everyone is doing! Your reservation for your preferred time will help us with our planning.
This month we are featuring Creative Spring Sewing Retreat, by Jamie and Jesse. "Creative Spring Sewing Retreat" will meet Friday April 28 and Saturday April 29, and will include lunch both days. The premise of this class is to encourage members to stretch their imagination to create any number of items using "block options" from the booklet Table Settings with Charm, from Creek Side Stitches. Participants may sign up for one or both days.
"Sew Complete has the pattern for quality and service"
