I can’t believe that January is already over! But it is amazing what we accomplished in January. We got back in the swing of things after the holidays with a super club. It was full of great prizes, fun games, a ton of opportunities to sharpen your sewing skills, and of course an outstanding show and tell! But we were just getting started!
We rolled right into our first lock-in of the year. Several took the opportunity to create a Simply Chic Carry-All to help organize our sewing equipment or to use when traveling. It was exciting to see the different fabrics and embellishments that were chosen. I can’t wait to see these at the next club.
Then we kicked off our new group, Serge Ahead! Many of you showed up to learn more about your sergers. We started out by making cord covers to help organize our sewing areas. As was presented in club, we will work our way through the projects in Georgie Melot’s Book, Ready, Set, Serge. But don’t feel bad if you couldn’t make the first session, in March we will complete a new project. So check the classes section to sign up.
Several got wrapped up in making fabric wrapped bowls with Pat F. I was fortunate to see some of the completed projects at the shop. Some were even motivated to create other items!
Then we were excited to have a great group for the Meandering Method of Quilting class. I was excited to see how quickly the students were replicating fun machine quilting patterns on their class samples. I can’t wait to see how they use this skill on their projects in the future!
In the mean time, we kept busy with a wide variety of guide classes. Many got to know their new Bernina Artista Software under the guidance of Joanne, and their BabyLock machines better with the help of Jane and Linda T.
Of course Rocci kept our next generation of students busy, and those of you that participated in Embellisher Enthusiasts know what fun Pat and Jane had planned for you.
It seems like there is always something happening at Zede’s Sewing Studio. If you haven’t checked us out lately, please feel welcome to come in and see what is happening. Or better yet, why not join us for club this week, or sign up for the Jelly Rolls into Coins class and find out what you have been missing!
Always on the look out for sewing fun, Linda B.
