Handstitchers Club 

The only rule with this group is that you cannot bring your sewing machine.   We can and will help you with just about anything made with a needle.    We sometimes do projects together as we explore a new technique or really cute pattern.  

Second Tuesdays,  10-12,   $10.00 per session. Meetings on February 8, March 8, APRIL 5, May 10, June 14

**** Note that the April Meeting is a week early*****

IN JULY WE WILL START A LONG TERM HAND PIECED AND QUILTED QUILT. MORE INFORMATION AND SUPPLY LISTS AVAIABLE IN PERSON AT THE SHOPPE.

If you are working on Healing Garden you may bring that to work on, otherwise we will be learning about Sashiko and Boro for the next few months.

In April we will do a small project for a needle case using either sashiko or boro – your choice. It appeared in Quilting Arts Magazine, Spring 2021. The materials list is :

4 1/2 x 12 1/2 lining fabric,
4 1/2 x 12 1/2 outer fabric for sashiko or scraps for boro
2 x 3 felt or firm batting to hold needles
Button
6 inches of ribbon
Perle cotton or sashiko thread or Razzle
sashiko needle
scissors and pins
can be assembled by hand or machine.

If you don’t have a nice button, we do, and we also have a selection
of ribbons as well as the threads, needles and any other supplies you
might be missing.   As I mentioned at the last meeting this is a great
way to use that last bit of a special or significant fabric.   Due to
the scale of this project, scraps as small as an inch can even be used
for the boro technique.  Typical sashiko will give a more formal look
and require the larger piece listed as the outer piece, and a marking tool that shows on dark fabric.
Final assembly will be at home so no need to carry a machine if you
want to use that finishing option.

    • Dale, Begin by checking out the offerings on the skillbuilders page, and the showcase page to see if any of them are right for you. If you have your heart set on something that is not there then come in to the shoppe and we can talk about it and arrange for private instruction. –Diana
