Sashiko and Butterflies with Gail

This class explores the world of Sashiko: Japanese handwork and applique. Gail will teach you all the various techniques you will need for this project. We'll use the time together to listen to soothing music, relax, and enjoy creating a masterpiece using this ancient artform. A kit will be ordered for you which will include the pattern, fabrics for the butterflies, Japanese thread, and enough fabric for backing and borders. Please bring a personal sewing lamp if you need extra light, sharp scissors, and a soft thimble. No hoop is needed. Please don't wait until the last minute to sign up, so we can try to get an accurate number of kits ordered in time.

Pillowcases for Ryan's Case for Smiles

Bring your sewing machine, scissors, and thread and join ladies making pillowcases for Ryan's Case for Smiles. They make around 1000 cases per month for Phoenix Children's Hospital and other hospitals. FABRIC WILL BE PROVIDED. Please register here as we have limited spacing as well as send email to: to let them know you will be coming! Can't make it that day? Make pillowcases and drop them off at the store. What a great cause!!! They are always looking for volunteers to help.

FIX IT! with Susan

Do you have a quilt project that you're struggling with? Are you stuck on a technique issue like making flying geese, or half square triangles that don't line up? Are your blocks coming out wonky and you don't know why? Perhaps you're having trouble understanding steps in a pattern? We can fix it! Bring in your quilting project and we'll help you get it done! Bring your questions, your project, and your sewing supplies (machine, rulers, thread, etc.) You'll have the whole class period to figure out the problem, and then work on your project with our guidance, so you'll have the confidence you need to finish that quilt! You may come any time within the 4 hour window, just be sure you allow enough time to troubleshoot your problem!
