This Week at the Sewing Centers

We really have some wonderful things planned at the Sewing Centers this week as we continue our Christmas in July sewing festivities. Here's what you can look forward to:

In Merrillville:

Christmas Town Quilt
There's another Picnic Quilt class on Wednesday. I can't tell you enough about how wonderfully these blocks stitch out and how fun they are to sew. Just coming up with the fabric for the bottle caps is at once a challenge and such great fun. I also wanted some nice strawberry swirl ice cream for my ice cream cones. We are nearing the end of the embroidery portion and will be learning to sew the squares and blocks together. I can't wait to see how everyone's quilt looks!

Then on Thursday there is a Peppermint Table Runner Class---a quicker project, but so beautiful and simple. And while we're on the subject of Christmas, we have a wonderful Christmas quilting class coming up in the future; the Christmas Town Quilt by Anita Goodesigns. We'll be having a sample on display at the Sewing Center soon, as well as posting pictures here and on our Facebook sites. If you'd like to do this really great holiday quilt, call the Merrillville Sewing Center at 219-736-7748 to reserve one of the limited spots in this class.  

In Highland:

In case you missed last season's Redwork Quilt or didn't have time to finish, we are revisiting this quick and easy quilt. I can verify to the ease and beauty of this quilt; I finished one under Joan's tutelage. They are so fun to make-- a bit of embroidery---the blocks go fast and then you can learn new skills---just a bit of flying geese on the edges, put it all together and have something really special on display in your home or as a gift for the holidays.

On Thursday we are making in the hoop Gift Card Holders. This is a fantastic idea to make a gift card more personal---they can even hang on your tree! Then on Friday we've got the second class for the Snowman applique quilt class. It's certainly not too late to start your quilt. Call Joan at 219-838-5433 and reserve your spot today! 

We've got a lot planned to help you through the holidays. So be sure to check back here and on our website so you don't miss out!
