Lots of busy times at Stitches... these days. Saturday was a class for purse makers and they revelled in the Grids & Grommets Bag; so awesome and such a different look. Ginny Young led 10 enthusiasts through the directions and instructions to a new purse.
Last Wednesday was our first session of Block of the Month and 25 quilters came out on a much warmer evening than the original night of -25 degrees. We were wise to postpone. The quilt is called "Everything's Coming Up Roses". This is a great way to start the year.
The knitters have been busy, too. The sock class is progressing nicely and you are welcome to join any time because someone is alway starting a new sock. We are all at different stages of sock making after 15 minutes. Some of the class members have started on the second pair and some are still making the first sock. It really isn't as difficult as I first thought it would be. If you have not been in lately, stop in and see our cupcake wallhangings, pictured above (kits available) and the duvet will be on display this week for the first time. This is a class offering at the end of the month. On February 14th, Stitches... is offering a beginning quilting class taught by Deb Steere. It is a small quilt that can be expanded from a wall hanging size if desired and has 3 different blocks. The class participants will have a completed quilt top ready for quilting at the end of the day. Class will be from 10am to 3pm.
