Ellen's Quilting Corner December Newsletter
Happy December, Friends!!!
It's so hard to believe that there are only 22 days until Christmas!!! Where has this year gone? There is still plenty of time to get the last of your Christmas gifts made up. If you are stumped on ideas stop in and let us inspire you with some of our new fabrics and patterns.
There are a few classes this month I would like to tell you about...
Our Block of the Month is only just starting its second month so there is still time if you want to join. We are doing a beautiful quilt from A Wing and a Prayer called Gemstone. Our next meeting is Sat. Dec. 5th at 10 a.m. in our classroom. Please come and join us, we would love to have you.
Farm Girl Vintage is also something fun we have been doing. We meet after block of the Month and make 3 different 6" blocks to go in our barn wall hanging. It's a fun group of ladies that gather for this none traditional class. Bring your own machine and supplies. This is a great way to use up some of your stash. You do need to purchase the Farm Girl Vintage Book.
In The Hoop Club on Dec. 10th
This month we will be making a cute little door hanger for your sewing room door.
Cost: $20.00 and this includes the kit. Call or e-mail us for the Supply List.
Bring your own embroidery machine
January In The Hoop Club
We will set the date for this at our Dec. class
January France Dress form pincushion
Bonjour and welcome to France!
On this tour we visit Paris, the Fashion capital of the world. What better way to celebrate the Parisian culture then to create a dress form pincushion. This beauty stands approximately 14" high with a French Shabby Chic aesthetic. She is made of burlap, Eifel tower print, adorned with soft twill tape, subtle Parisian embroidery, stands on a wooden spool of thread and is topped off with a beautiful creamy over sized pearl. She stitches up quickly all inside the hoop with a petit bit of hand stitching. This is a project you will amour for years to come!
