UPCOMING CLASSES
and EVENTS!!!!!
Open Sew Saturday
Dates: Saturday,
September 7
Time: 10am-5pm

Join us on the 1st Saturday each month for OPEN SEW SATURDAY! A day for you to come in with your own sewing or embroidery machine, and whatever project you may be working on. We chat and give a little help if you need it. Bring your own lunch, or go out somewhere nearby, just sort of free-wheeling it. We'll leave that up to you.

We hope to see you there!
Quilts of Valor
Date: Thursday, September 12
Time: 11am-5pm

A Quilt of Valor is our award to those who have been touched by war. It says "thank you for your service, sacrifice and valor" in serving our nation. If you would like to participate in this local sewing group, please join us on any or all dates to work on your own Quilt of Valor or to assist others with their quilts.
 
Simple Whatnots Club The last meeting for this group is Saturday, 10am-11am, September 14.
National Sew A Jelly Roll Day
Dates: Saturday,  September 21
Time: 10am-5pm

National Sew A Jelly Roll Day celebrates quilters of every generation and skill level with this annual event.
 
If you're a quilter, you collect fabric.  You may also collect "pre-cuts", those tempting packages of many pieces of fabric already cut for you into charming sizes.  They're so popular, there is even a special lingo associated with them - layer cakes and dessert rolls, honey buns and jelly rolls.
 
Come in any time between 10 AM and 5 PM. We will have door prizes and snacks! There will be jelly rolls and patterns for you to purchase (with your bag a bargain discount) or bring your own with you. Moda also has lots of free downloads in the  bake shop. Please register so we will have a space for you. Bring a friend or three! You will need to bring your own machines and sewing supplies.

We will have "SEW MUCH FUN!"         
Software Sampler
Teacher: Jane McMurray
Dates:
Saturday, September 28
Time: 10am-11:30am

Kim Diehl has announced the next series of Simple Whatnots 9 , and I just couldn't wait to share the projects and new fabric line Esther's Heirloom Shirtings. Fabrics won't arrive until December and club will not be able to start before January.
