This Week’s Classes

March Serger Club

This month’s project is the E-shrug from Linda Lee’s Sewing Workshop. It is a downloadable pattern for $6 on her website. Quick to sew and a wardrobe staple.

Debbie used a melon colored knit from Treadle Yard Goods.

Serger Club meets this Thursday, March 20, at 10:30, Hancock Fabrics, Southtown.

Bags For Kids Project

Several of you stopped by Hancock yesterday and picked up kits-thank you! We sewed a few together and realized that the directions were a bit confusing. The bottom line is a 24″ wide by 30″ tall bag with a drawstring at the top and a 12″ wide by 15″ tall pocket on the outside. Serged seams or french seams keeps it clean on the inside. If you use a 60″ wide fabric, the fold will be at the bottom and the selvages will be at the top so they can simply be turned over to the outside or inside and stitched down to form the drawstring casing. Very quick to put together. We can always add the drawstrings if you just want to sew the bags at home.
We will be at Hancock the next two Mondays if you’d like to come and sew. Finished bags can be dropped off at the First Sewing desk inside Hancock Fabrics at Southtown. Kits can also be picked up but please call us or email before you do so there will be a good supply for you. 952-201-3863 or
