February – Chenille Heart Door Hanger
March – Fabric Bunny Basket
April – Oven Mitt

June – no club
July – Drawstring Travel Bag
August – no club
September – Lined Pencil Pouch

We meet the 2nd Saturday of every month from 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
Class fee is $15 plus supplies.  Snacks are included.

We prefer that you bring your own sewing machine in good working order.  Stitch N Quilt offers machine service, as do Sewing Doc and Ashby Sewing.

A limited number of sewing machines are available for student use. Please let the shop know when you register. I bring sewing machines with a speed controller.

Policies:

  • Students must be 8 years old/rising 3rd grader to attend classes.
  • Students must be good listeners and able to follow directions.
  • Parents/caregivers are welcome to stay; however, realize your child is going to want you to participate along side them!
  • Classes are limited to six students. Payment is required at time of sign-up.
  • Some sewing machine familiarity is helpful, but actual sewing experience not always required.  That said, the January and November club projects are more involved and best suited for kids who have attended at least 3 sessions with us.

Happy Turkey Day!

Mom asked me to remake my Grandmother’s vintage placemats that were literally worn out.  (She originally asked in 2017, but I am happy to report she got her placemats in time for Thanksgiving 2018.)  I decided to turn this into the November Kid’s Club project. I’m also happy to announce that thanks to numerous requests, an official pattern will be coming soon. 🙂

Look, Mom! I made a skirt!

20180811_131313

Yes, these young ladies made their very own skirts at the most recent Kid’s Club at Stitch N Quilt in Mableton.  The girls chose the Roxy Skirt Pattern from Simplicity. I dusted off garment sewing skills learned long, long ago to teach these eager stitchers how to read a pattern, the importance of grainline and how cut out pattern pieces. Fortunately, each girl had an adult (grandma or quilt guild volunteer) to assist her.  I’m so proud of them!

Let’s make some magic…

Travel pillowcase

Miss Teresa’s Magical Travel Pillowcase that is!

Join us on Saturday, January 13, 2018 from 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. at Stitch ‘N Quilt in Mableton to learn how to make a travel size pillowcase.

Cost:  $10.00 + supplies

The shop is offering kits (including a pillow) in either a pink or turquoise colorway. If you prefer to DIY, please bring your fabrics cut and ready to sew.

This is an EXCELLENT first class for those with no or minimal sewing experience.

Learn:
* Basic sewing vocabulary.
* How to maintain a consistent seam allowance.
* How to construct a French seam.
* Finishing details that make a difference.

We prefer that you bring your own sewing machine in good working order. If you need to borrow machine, please let the shop know when you register for the class. A limited number of machines are available for student use.

Not able to join us on 1/13/18? Here’s my magical pillowcase tutorial  with supply list and basic directions.
