October is one of my favorite months.
It is the shop’s birthday month and I like to pack it full of events and specials.
This year will be our 29th birthday for Sew What Fabrics.
Celebrate with us all month with incredible classes, events, and sales.
Watch for announcements of our Birthday Sale!
Stepping Stones Class with Lucille Amos is
Friday, October 7, 9:30 am – 4:30 pm.
Lucille is a certified Judy Niemeyer instructor.
This quilt uses jelly rolls and you can start a quilt or place mats or a table runner.
I can’t decide which jelly roll to use.
Each day I pick a different one.
I’ve wanted to take one of Lucille’s Classes and keep getting bumped (my customers come first you know!).
Saturday, October 8 is the Meandering Stars class.
We will offer a kit for the quilt like Lucille’s with the multi colored black background.
Just let us know you want us to cut one for you.
The Saturday class is October 8, 9:30 am – 4:30 pm.
If you loved the Total Eclipse class and want a kit, we have one like the cover quilt.
We do have a waiting list for this class although we have offered it twice.
It would be scheduled in 2012.
Everyone loved the class and really enjoyed being with Lucille.
The Virginia Quilt Roadshow is happening on Thursday – Saturday, October 13 – 15.
It is a one day event and filling up fast.
Each day includes lecture/demo of four great designers presented by our capable and entertaining staff.
This year we will be presenting the designs of Laura Murray, Cindi Edgerton, Joan Hawley, and Judy Lilly.
You will get so many good ideas and learn so many tips and techniques.
Each designer has sent samples and tip sheets for us to share with you.
Lunch, door prizes, and a tote bag make the day even more special.
