Upcoming Classes

Pillowcase Day
Pillow Case Day! :Are you looking for a fun way to use up some of your stash while helping others? We will be holding a free, one day pillowcase making session, where we will lead you through the steps of creating a fast and easy pillowcase. Since they are so quick to make there will be time to stitch several. We are hoping that you will want to stitch one or more to donate to a local charity and or Children’s Hospital.  We suggest that you use children’s prints or funky brights for the ones you will be donating. We will also be collecting pillowcases for Halloween or Christmas if you would like to drop off some pillowcases.  A supply list will be available.  A light lunch will be supplied, but if you like, bring along a potluck dish to share.
