sewing groups


We’re bringing Sewing back!

AFTER SCHOOL LESSONS FOR KIDS  will start up again on October 3.  Classes will be Fridays, 3:45-4:45. Cost is $40 per week, (includes all supplies)  payable monthly before the first lesson.  Payment holds a seat in the class. Machines are provided, however if your child has one, it’s a good idea to bring it along so they become more familiar with it.  Registration closes on Sept 19, class size is limited so we can give individual attention.

We’ll be working on all kinds of fun stuff this year!  Kids will be sewing projects geared to their skill level.  We do suggest they take a beginner lesson before starting in a group setting – they’ll feel more confident if they do-and that makes for a better experience!

SUMMER CAMPS were sold out this year – and were tons of fun for the kids – and us, too!  We’re planning HOLIDAY CAMPS, too!!  Call if you’re interested and get added to the wait list so you’re not left out!

We’ll be offering beginner KNITTING AND CROCHET classes again this year, too!  For kids & adults. Cowls, daisy chains & cute animal caps are among the beginner projects.

SUNDAY HOURS will be starting September 21.  We’ll be open 12-4pm !!

HALLOWEEN COSTUME PARTY is scheduled for OCT 25 – we’ll be sewing in our costumes and making a plushie candy corn pillow!  We’ve also scheduled another OWLIE workshop,which is always fun! We have lots of Halloween colors chosen so these Owlies will be ready for trick or treating!

Check the Class Calendar for additional classes, and as always-private lessons can be scheduled to fit your busy day!

Follow us on Instagram for the latest!!  And stop in to see whats new! (fabrics, patterns & notions)

Inventory your sewing room 1

For years I’ve been wanting to inventory my sewing room. Patterns, fabric, notions… Everything. It would be great to have a file at my fingertips that I can look through when choosing my next project instead of having to dig through my closets and bins. Also, for those of you who own businesses where you need to purchase fabric and notions, it is necessary to know what purchases you’ve made for the year to appropriately claim them on your taxes at the end of the year.

I figure there are two ways to go about this: physical or digital.

I like the idea of having samples of my fabrics clipped to inventory cards in a physical file that I can look through. I came across one at crafty staci. She even has a free printable for the inventory card available for you to download and some great suggestions on how to put them into action!

If you’re looking for a more ‘at your fingertips’ solution you can try one of the many apps available. I’ve been using one for my iPhone called Sewing Room. It allows you to scan the barcode on all patterns from major pattern companies to enter them into your inventory. A picture pops up along with all the details! You can even enter your own notes. This app also lets you take pictures of each of your fabrics and enter lots of identifying information to accompany it in your digital inventory. You can also make lists of people you’d like to sew for and projects you’re working on! I really like that I can enter in where I bought my items and how much I paid. Don’t worry – even if your pattern collection includes lesser known designers and companies, you can enter them manually and take your own picture! Can you tell I’m excited about this?

I’m really going to work on this project this week… I’ll let you know how it goes! Has anyone else been working on becoming more organized with their sewing?
