Fall 2016 Roundup


Last week was the last of our fall classes and workshops! I scheduled a much shorter fall session than typical this year since Baby Stitch should be making his or her appearance any day now! One of my teen students asked if I was sad that the sessions were over and I could so truthfully answer: Yes! and No! Obviously I'm so excited to welcome another little one but I had such a great time working with all of my students over the past few months and I'm already missing seeing everyone each week!

Here's a little roundup of what we worked on over September and October...

KIDS...

My Tuesday kids started off with cinched backpacks to store their projects and quickly moved on to some Stitch Softies. These are a favorite among my students! Each student designs their own animal and we work together to figure out how to bring those animals to life. It takes a few weeks to complete but the end results are always amazing!

My Wednesday ladies started September with their own cinched backpacks, an excellent project for practicing straight stitching. Next up were pillowcases with custom machine applique motifs. Lastly they tackled zippers with these adorable cupcake pouches. There was lots of handsewing and embroidery this fall!

When I asked what they wanted to make in October there was an overwhelming request for stuffed ice cream cones with pompoms. They practiced tracing patterns, sewing curves and clipping corners while bringing these sweets to life! Lastly they finished up with modified Purl Soho Gathered Skirts with POCKETS!

All students get their choice of fabric from our shelves and I love seeing their personality and eye for design come out in projects like this.

Kids Classes will be offered on Tuesday and Wednesday next year. Winter and spring sessions are now open for registration. They sold out quickly this fall, so be sure to save your spot! REGISTER NOW
