We have three spots left for the Winner's Bouquet Quilt class on Friday, October 4! If you are able to sign up here, we have a spot and a pattern/templates for you. Just bring the supplies on the supply list (such as your sewing machine and cutting supplies), and we can even help you pick out fabric first thing in the morning.
Join us for an awesome trunk show and lecture/demo with Baby Lock Educator Karen Parker on Wednesday, October 16. Karen will bring her samples and show us all the new things happening at Baby Lock, including the Solaris and brand new machines! You'll be amazed by all the cool new features, and get inspired to create! This is a lecture/demo, so no need to bring a machine. See more info and sign up here.
Do you own one of Baby Lock's awesome sergers? Have you been wondering what a serger can do? Or do you have a different brand of serger that is hard to use? If you said yes to any of these questions, you'll love making this adorable clutch with Baby Lock Educator Karen Parker. The Dynamic Dorian Clutch class will show you new ways to use the cover stitch, pin tucks, flat lock and more. We'll strip piece the surface and then embellish to your heart's desire. Final steps take you to zipper insertion and gathering as you complete this cute accessory. This is a good class if you'd like to try out a Baby Lock self-threading tension-less serger because we will have a limited number of sergers available to borrow (at great sale prices!) See more info and sign up here.

They are so cute!
