~Trunk Show at this month's Sewcial Guild Meeting~

This month's Sewcial Guild meeting, on Thursday, November 29th at 11am, will feature Jody Beck of Jody's Gems.  She will present 20-30 completed projects including quilts, table runners, toppers, placemats and tree ornaments.  Many of Jody's patterns feature the Stack and Slash technique which is a cousin to the Stack and Whack.  Stack and Whack is typically for precise quilters whereas Stack and Slash is a more random and much quicker technique.  It is great for quilters who want to relax and accomplish a lot in a short period of time.

Guests are always welcome to come to meetings to familiarize themselves with the guild's activities and make friends, so we hope to see you there!
Coming next Saturday:
~Small Business Saturday Sale 2018~

The shop will be closed on Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday (11/22 & 11/23).  However, be sure to stop in on Saturday, November 24th for the Small Business Saturday Sale and Shop Small!

We'll be offering 15% off of all Batiks that day!

~Sewing Basics for Beginners~
Instructor:  Elizabeth Campbell

Let local Palmerton resident Elizabeth Campbell teach you sewing machine basics while you create a standard-size pillowcase.

"Did you ever want to learn how to sew?  Do you own a sewing machine but need someone to show you how to operate it?

In this class, I'll review the basic functions of your machine and also teach you how to utilize it for various projects.  I will also show you how to cut fabric for a pillowcase pattern and sew it together.  I'm a firm believer you can do anything if you put your heart and soul into it, sometimes you just need someone to get you started!"

Class Fee:  $20

(Students will need to bring their own sewing machines and will be given a small Supply List after signing up for the class)
