Sew Easy Sewing Class Schedule Details

**UPDATE 12/27/14** – The Classes and Events Calendar is updated for the first quarter! I am creating posts with class details as fast as I can so keep checking back if you don’t yet see the details for the class you want.


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 – 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

January 

EC: Free Standing Lace Jan 16 @ 1 PM or 5:30 PM, Jan 17 @ 10 AM
BOM 1: Applique with the Basic Quilt block and Folded Fabric Block Jan 14 @ 1 PM or 5:30 PM, Jan 24 @10 AM

If you are making the cover for the machine you are bringing to class, you can just measure during the class.

Also measure around the main body of the machine from under the handwheel around the front back around to under the handwheel like so:

Cutting Edge Jacket

Cutting-Edge-Jacket-sewing-pattern-Indygo-Junction-IJ977CR-frontThe Cutting Edge Jacket reveals a rough refinement with raw edged denim accented with contrasting linear stitching detail on facings. Facings are featured in cotton or cut from the wrong side of denim. Jacket can also be constructed from repurposed denim jeans. Two lengths include a cropped mid hip length and a lower hip length. Included is an optional single raw edged pocket embellished with decorative stitching. Closure is provided by a single, oversized snap at neck.

Sizes: S – XXL (Recycled version: Due to the constraints of the denim jeans only sizes S – L can be made from recycled materials unless jeans are pieced).
