June’s Tuesday Inspiration

Great meeting-thanks to all who attended!

Thursday and Saturday meetings are coming up tomorrow at 10:30. Go to “Fashion Sewing Club” on the website menu and register to receive the link to the Zoom meeting and the Club sheets.

Some info to pass on:

Craftsy/Bluprint is going out of business. Try this (allavsoft.com) for saving all of your classes before they go away.

SBCC (Skinny Bitch Curvy Chick) patterns are made for petites and more. Paulette made the Paloma Blouse right out of the package and it fit! They are sold on patternreview.com and you can choose the print option as it is a pdf only pattern. I found several I’d like to try because even though I am regular height, I often “petite” patterns to bring up the underarms and waist. I’ll have to lengthen the skirt 🙂 There are a few average height patterns also.

Treadle will honor its 10% off if you attend Fashion Sewing Club, good through June 20. Here’s a pic of their latest arrivals. There are also new rayon batiks.

New arrivals at Treadle!

SR Harris is offering to let us in at 9 am for Fashion Sewing Club next month so we can meet and shop and not keep other customers away-their current limit is 15 people. We’ll let you know if it can be done!

We’re meeting for Sew Social at First Sewing tomorrow! First time in a long time-looking forward to getting together. There will be a limit of 8 people. You can email/text/call if interested in coming.

Linda Lee of Sewing Workshop is hosting some great videos each Tuesday at 11 am but you can watch them anytime-check her website/Facebook/YouTube.

And now for the Sew and Tell-you can send your photos before the meeting and we can all see them on Zoom.

June Fashion Sewing Club starts tomorrow!

Covid isn’t going to let us gather this month either!! But we’ve been having fun via Zoom so we’ll meet on Zoom again this month-

Tuesday, June 9,

Thursday, June 11

Saturday, June 13

All meetings begin at 10:30 am

This month we are asking that you register and pay ($10) through our website. Then a Zoom meeting link will be sent to you along with the Club sheets. Just a debit or credit card is all you need. Here is the link or you can click on “Fashion Sewing Club” in the menu at the top of the website.

You may attend as many sessions of the month’s meetings as you want and still just pay for one meeting. Your first meeting is free.

Sewing up a storm!?!?

Making Covid19 Masks

Perhaps you saw the great Treadle Yard Goods/Sew Good Goods article on the 10 o’clock news and are already in production mode.


Here is a link to the Allina Health site that lists donation locations.https://www.allinahealth.org/about-us/newsroom/2020/allina-health-calls-on-public-for-donations-of-face-masks
Here is a link with printed instructions on how to sew the face mask:https://www.allinahealth.org/-/media/allina-health/files/mask-sewing-how-to.pdf

Sew Good Goods instructions are here.

But in case you haven’t jumped on the bandwagon, here are some sources and inspirational photos to inspire you:

And here is the YouTube link to an instructional video.https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=21&v=9tBg0Os5FWQ&feature=emb_logo
Also, Craftpassion.com has a pattern and a file for using a Cricut to cut fabric. That would be a great time/hand saver!

Test model who shall remain nameless-but thanks to Sew Socialites (our group that sews on Thursdays at First Sewing)

Sew forth and conquer and reach out to your sewing friends to keep spirits up!! Or send me photos and I will post here.

First entry-Loraine has finished 20 and says you can drop off at JoAnn Edina.

Tuesday’s Triumph’s and Trials

All sewing is a great adventure-a garment that you will wear is merely a lucky byproduct of that adventure 🙂

With that in mind, here are some November sewing adventures-there’s still more to come from Thursday’s (11/14) meetings- 10:30 am at SR Harris, Burnsville 6:30 pm at First Sewing, Bloomington

This was the triumph-Wiksten Harem pants-or is the smile because she’s going to be a grandma??
And this was her trial-maybe no interfacing in the neck?
Japanese apron and Light and Shadows/Cutting Line Designs in wool
Very much Honorable Mention for her unmentionables

Love the print on print!
Cutting Line blouse and Japanese scarf
She couldn’t go to class with just any old pincushion 🙂
