Happy Memorial Day

We hope you are having a wonderful Memorial Day weekend, sitting by the pool with your cold beverage in one had and a BBQ rib in the other.  Make sure you use a lot of napkins before you slip away from the party, unnoticed, and sneak down to your sewing room!  BBQ sauce and Bernina machines do not mix!  But if they do, remember that our Bernina Certified technician can get you going again very quickly. There's no waiting list! Bring it by if you have an issue, or if your trusty machine just needs a "day at the spa".

The Birmingham Quilter's Guild will host QuiltFest June 3-4 at the Bessemer Civic Center from 10:00am - 5:00pm each day. There will be a Judged Quilt Show, a Guild Boutique, an Opportunity Market, and of course a lot of vendors. Robin's will be there too, so be sure to drop by our table and say hi.

There will also be some special exhibits to see, as well as a silent auction that will benefit the Lakeshore Foundation. It's only $10 for a two-day admission ticket. Visit the QuiltFest website for more details.

Kimberbell June

Have you tried Kimberbell yet? We do a fun project each month on the 2nd Saturday. Come join us Saturday, June 11th at 10:30am. Call Trussville at (205) 655-3388 to register.


The Q24 Returns

We have recently installed a new 9-foot longarm frame in our Trussville store. That gives us more space in our classroom, and it also means you can finally come in to get certified on how to learn the longarm! Our teachers at both locations say that the hardest part is getting over the fear of starting. After that, it is much easier than you think. Call Trussville at (205) 655-3388 or Valleydale at (205) 848-2303 to pick a date that you want to come in. Certification is just $50, which then allows you to rent the machine at either location for only $15/hour.  


Embroidery 101 at Trussville Rescheduled

Were you in the Embroidery 101 class that was cancelled last month due to the threat of inclement weather? Your class has been rescheduled for June 13th at 10:30am.

Robin's Coaster Club

Have you seen the Robin's Coaster Club samples at our stores? We will embroider a fun holiday design each month. This month you can choose either Seaside Sweeties or Fabulous 4th Coasters.

Each monthly class will be $15, and will include fabric and two designs - a boy and a girl version. Go home with a completed gift as well as the designs to make more. This class will be on June18th! Call Trussville at (205) 655-3388 to sign up.  Let your fellow go play golf all day for Father's Day Weekend, and come spend the day with us.

Valleydale dates to come in late June. Watch our calendar for updates.


Do you have an idea for a class you want to take (or teach!), then give us a call and let us know. Also, check our online calendar for the latest updates. We've added Kimberbell and the Coaster Club because of the requests for quick and easy embroidery projects. The Microwave bowl cozys are super fast and fun sewing projects. We will be looking to expand our quilting selections next, with some fun patterns that will be good for those of you who have never tried quilting, or for those who want to learn some new techniques.

Do you want to learn to try some easy sewing patterns for your kids or grandkids? Or are you an expert, and you need to try that piping foot that's on sale? Do you need your scissors sharpened? Do you want to look at buttons, ribbon, batiste, or lace?  We have all of that and more.  Come visit us soon!

Happy Sewing,
