Summer is here, the heat is intense, but it is a great time for an indoor sewing escape....

This Sunday, we are holding a class called "All About Stabilizers" for the beginning to advanced embroidery enthusiast.  We will show what stabilizers to use, and when, from knits to working on wovens, and even cover toppers and how you can use stabilizers in your regular sewing as well.  Sunday afternoon, June 11th, Noon to 3pm.  All only $5.

Florida Row by Row, 2017, starts on Wednesday, June 21st.  We think our row is 'out of this world' this year, with an easy to assemble rocket and vinyl pocket to insert your favorite space man / woman.

On Thursday, June 22nd (day after RxR starts), we will hold a workshop for any Row By Rower to help with construction of any of the rows you have already collected.
Starting Saturday, July 8th - 15th, the local Brevard County Quilt Shops will host a Get To Know Us Shop Hop.  This will be a fun way to learn the special features of each local shop.   Click here to learn more.

Just to keep everyone 'hopping', Sew Central will be also participating in the Star Shop Hop starting July 22nd - a hop that will include stores throughout Orlando and the neighboring communities .  More details to come.
