Sew Easy Sewing Class Schedule Details

**This post is pinned to the top, scroll down for new information** 

The classes may not be listed in the correct order below. I try to list them with the dates from current moving into the future but it doesn’t always work out that way. Unfortunately I have yet to figure out how to make them re-order themselves once the date for that event has passed, lol. There is probably “an app for that” but I haven’t found it.

Visit the link labeled “Classes and Events Calendar” at the top of the page to see the classes on a calendar complete with pictures and links to the descriptions.

Should you see a class that you really want to take but the date has passed, it is OK. Just get in touch with me and we can set up either a private class or if enough people are interested, I can put it back on the calendar. :) The cost is the same whether there is one student or multiple students.

If you have questions about supplies, dates, times, cost, or anything else related to the classes, please call 575.623.3774 and speak with Krisann (me). I’ll do my best to answer them.

Embroidery Club 2nd Qtr

We are using the Anita Goodesign 2nd quarter workshop for embroidery club. There are 13 projects plus the block of the month project which has 8 blocks. To accommodate for more projects we have added “bonus” embroidery club sessions.

The pricing will be the same as last quarter. The packet is $20 and each class is $5 which covers water, snacks, and electricity. Remember you can earn up to $10 in embroidery bucks* during each class so it “pays” to come to class. :)

If you don’t want “baby” items, please consider taking the classes and donating the items. We will be giving the unwanted or extra items to the Chaves County CASA or the Roswell Police Department for children in crisis.

Please pick up your packet in advance so that you will know what supplies to bring for each project.

**CORRECTION** for the Soft Book blocks – if you choose size AA (Destiny or Dream Machine only) instead of 4 – 9″ x 2.5″ strips, you need 2 – 9″ x 2.5″ strips for the top/bottom and 2 – 10″ x 2.5″ strips for the sides. 10″ will BARELY fit so don’t skimp but you can use layer cake squares and make them work.

Serger Notions Bagsergernotions

Traveling lighter these days? The serger pouch is the perfect accessory to use when you don’t want to be weighed down by a purse. And, it’s so easy to make, you can whip one up on the Baby Lock Evolution the night before you need it. The saying really is true: good things come in little packages. Techniques such zipper installation are easily achieved with a 4-thread seam and cording foot. Contrast binding along the top edge of the pockets is a breeze with the double fold bias binder. Insert strips of fabric in the wide belt loop binder, set the Evolution for a wide coverstitch, and just like magic the purse straps are constructed. Now that the components are complete, serge it together using a 4-thread stitch. It doesn’t get much better than this!

Date: Friday April, 24
Time: 10 AM – 4 PM (Everyone loves Emily so much we usually run over, so it could be 5 PM)
Lunch break 11:30 – 1 PM (approximate)

We do not have kits in this color but once you learn to make it, you can pick your own fabrics!

Are you looking for a way to update your existing décor and still stay within your budget? The most cost effective way to accomplish this is by adding a few decorative pillows to the mix.  If you want instant gratification, then stitching them on a Baby Lock serger will transform the look of a room in just a few hours.  This Ruffle and Tuck Pillow will add new life as well as showcasing some beautiful texture too.  Begin the project by adding a rolled hem decorative edge to narrow strips of fabric.  Gathering down the center of the strips is easily accomplished on the Ovation  by simply adjusting a few stitch settings. The center panel showcases the Baby Lock exclusive wave stitch and yields beautiful dimensional tucks. Combine these techniques to create the front of the pillow. Attach the cording foot and easily install a zipper to the pillow back allowing you launder it or change it out for the seasons. Sound easy?  Let’s get started!

Embroidery Club – 1st Qtr 2015

Embroidery Club is changing just a bit in 2015. We will be doing Anita Goodesign workshops but instead of sending the packets monthly they will send them quarterly. All designs for the quarter will be included in the packet along with all the instructions. For the first quarter these are the projects/designs included in the packet:

First quarter Anita Goodesign

Click the image to see the sizes and requirements.

 

We will be doing the regular “Embroidery Club” (EC) but we will also be doing a “Block of the Month” (BOM) twice per month for the first quarter because there are so many block designs. :) The cost will be the same if you only do EC but it will be divided up differently; for the first month the cost is $20 and you receive the entire packet, then in month two and three the cost is only $5 per month. If you choose to do the BOM instead of the EC the cost is $20 for the first class and $5 for each additional class. If you do both EC and BOM the first class you take is $20 and each additional class for either BOM or EC is $5.

Over the course of the first quarter if you come to every class it would work out this way:

EC: $20 + $5 x 2 more classes = $30 for three months (same total as last year just divided differently)
BOM: $20 + $5 x 5 more classes = $45 for three months
EC and BOM: $20 + $5 x 7 more classes = $55 for three months
