Some of you know that I had to retire my mother, Ann, due to bad knees. Contrary to what she loves to tell people – she was retired, not fired! But I am going through major mom withdrawal, so we are bringing her and her cute little shih tzu, Teddy, in for open sewing twice a month. Pre-registration is required but it should be a fun day of sewing with a little puppy love thrown in to make the day extra special.

Many of you have been requesting a basic binding class, so here it is! We will cover straight grain and bias binding, single vs double binding and the different methods that can be used to finish the ends of your binding. Three different binding rulers will be shown and demonstrated.
