Happy Corduroy Appreciation Day! I had some grand plans for posting new craft tutorials this week (and sewing corduroy awesomeness), but then my baby ended up with his first-ever ear infection, and cuddling him has been about all I’m good for. So instead, here is a quick post about some fun events coming up…
On Sunday, November 13, Michelle and I are teaching back-to-back fall craft classes at the Pendleton Woolen Mill Store. My Wool Baby Quilt class is from 11-1:30 and includes all the materials you’ll need to finish your project for $40. Here are some of the quilt tops my students at the Northwest Quilt Expo made – Pendleton has put together tons of kits in different color and fabric combinations for students to choose from! Call 503-535-5786 to register, and if you sign up for either class, you get a 15% coupon off all your purchases at the Woolen Mill Store.
Then, from 2-4, Michelle is teaching a new Firewood Carrier class. This one is only $20! Plus, you can pick up the free pattern for her Christmas tree
skirt poncho project – I can’t wait to see that one in person at the shop…
Next week, Modern Domestic is hosting a lovely holiday party to celebrate their expansion on Friday, November 18 from 6-9 pm. They’re offering snacks and drinks, mini-classes, and giveaways all evening long!
And then on Sunday, November 20, Sarai Mitnick of Colette Patterns is having a book signing and fabric swap at Powell’s to celebrate her gorgeous new book, The Colette Sewing Handbook! The party is at 4 pm, and she suggests that you bring a small bag of fabric (usable-size pieces, not tiny scraps) to trade with other sewists. Sounds fabulous!
Hope to see you at one of them!
