Organic Soul and stitchy goodness

We’ve got lots of fun planned at Stitch Cleveland this month, so there is no excuse for you to be dwelling on the fact that winter is right around the corner!

First off is our popular PJ  Sewing Party  which includes pizza and beverage! November’s event is  only $15 to give you all a chance to see how much fun it is to sew with us!  So, call a friend and dust off your machine!  Nov 4, 6-9pm.  Space is limited so call soon!

To keep the chill off in the coming months you will want to make the fabulous Window to the Soul quilt pictured above, in Amy Butler’s new Organic Soul fabric collection.  Your purchase of the fabric kit will include a punch card for 6 hours of studio time!!  So that means, you can join us at the shop to sew your gorgeous quilt and show it off as you do!  Contact us to order your kit by Oct 30th so you don’t miss out!

Tuesday evening group classes coming up include a super easy and super fashionable skirt in the length of your choice.  I like the longer ones, but it looks just as smashing in a shorter length with a pair of boots!  Using our challis fabric it has the most wonderful sweepy look!  A quilted wine carrier that you will need for all those holiday hostess gifts and don’t forget our monthly Alteration Clinic to keep you well tailored through all those upcoming holiday parties!  We also offer expert alterations and sewing service for those projects that get you all nervous just thinking about them.

If your machine is in need of some TLC, Dennis Myers, our fabulous sewing machine doctor, can get your machine sewing like the wind!  He picks up weekly on Wednesdays.

Private lessons are most popular once the weather gets chilly,  tackle that project you’ve always wanted to, whether it’s garment sewing, home dec projects or modern quilting.  These lessons are student guided and address what you want to learn in a comfortable, low stress  one on one setting.

And, don’t forget our Monthly Modern Sewing Social.  Scheduled the first Thursday of each month, pack up your machine for a fun night out with the girls!

 


Alterations Clinic

This coming Saturday, Jan 8th, 1:00-4pm.  $30.   Bring your garments-pants, skirts, jackets, etc. and learn how easy it is to alter them yourself.  We’ll walk you through each step and show you the techniques that professional tailors use.  With basic sewing skills you can do many alterations yourself.   Learn how to use the blindstitch machine and serger, too!  Please call to register by Thursday, this workshop size is limited to give  each student  individual attention on their garments.

I have a jacket that desperately needs a new lining, so I’ll be giving you an overview of replacing a lining in a jacket, too.  Next month we’ll be doing a workshop on just that.
