Wool Club   Tammy/ Wendy   3rd Tuesdays at 10:30 and Second Fridays at 5:45   Feb19, Mar 8,19, Apr 12,16, May 10, 21     $5 per session
Do you enjoy the look of wool?  So you like hand stitching and or machine applique?  Have you ever tried applique? WOOL applique? It is a dream!  No need to turn edges, needles easily, no hoop required.  Compared to cotton needle turn applique, it is soooo forgiving.  It can be done in less than perfect conditions without perfect light, without perfect stillness (as in, you CAN do it in a moving car, as long as you are not driving). In this class we’ll take a look at a couple of ways to attach your wool applique to the background and we’ll explore a few of the more common stitches and some of their relatives. Sew Much More is carrying more wool and hand embroidery threads so we want to share a small project with you each month and have a place for you to show and share.

We are so excited to announce our quilting event with Kay Capps Cross, who is a renowned author, quilt artist & long arm professional as well as our WonderFil Event Instructor. She is all about making the quilting process easier. She gives quilters a lot of reasons to quilt projects on your own. Above all, simplify your life! Empty your closets by finishing your stack of quilt tops. Listen to each quilt to determine what style and the story it needs to complete it. It is critical that you closely follow the quilting instructions to make her great designs, whether it is quilted with a simple or a more complex design. The quilting is the frosting on the cake. You will have complete creative control when you quilt your own projects. You're adding another layer to the quilt by highlighting the design and adding texture. She demonstrates that the idea is to keep quilting by finding paths to stitch continuously. In the morning she will teach basic machine quilting principles that apply to long arm or conventional quilting. In the afternoon session, Kay will take you through the wonder and capabilities of computerized quilting.
