Linen Looks

New ways with antique linens. vestvest backDoilyvest patternI used this Butterick Pattern to create the delightul vest above and added my own touches for fun in the way of recycled linen napkins and table runner. The table topper is a mix of lace and crocheted doilies.

March is fun month to sew up just about anything you can think of.

Valentine’s Day

Huggleby bearHuggleby B. Bear is wishing everyone a Happy Valentine’s Day. Hug a loved one, tell those around you how much they mean to you and since Family Day falls a day after, then connect with them and share you feelings.

Machine Embroidery takes up much of my time lately and yet the Serging and Sewing classes continue. The pant fitting classes are filling up the end of the month. The Serger Workshop Feb 25 & 26 still has available spaces. Cloning a Pattern will be postponed until March as I am taking a little mini vacation.

Saturday Feb 27 will be a fun day of sewing for charity so please call and set up a time to sew with me. What child wouldn’t want their hospital stay brightened up with one of these cute pillow cases?

Come sew any item you wish or complete those UFO’s

Enjoy your weekend and see you soon.
