For all intents and purposes, Summer is here! Sandy’s has a busy summer planned, so don’t miss out! Some of the fun includes:
It’s also a great time to have your machine serviced if you are going to be gone on vacation! Holiday Sewing is just around the corner! Sandy’s Holiday Inspiration Open House will be in August—we just couldn’t quite manage Christmas in July with the Kids Can Sew Day Camps going on in June and July.
June will start out with a fabulous large quilted tote, embellished with embroidery, applique, decorative stitching or just featuring the quilted fabric. Also scheduled, a Zip It Up! Class, and a 10am-2pm Summer/Patriotic Red, White, and Blue Stitch N Fold Wreath class, and Survival Sewing.
There will be an evening class for Free Motion Quilting with Westalee rulers and templates. If you haven’t heard about these templates, stop in to see just how much fun they are! For those of us with a little less artistic confidence, the templates are quick and easy to learn to use. And once you get started with them, you are soon inspired to create your own motifs!
For Beginning Sewists or those who are looking for some quick and easy projects, look for the classes starting with “Beginner Friendly”. There will be a scattering of those single session classes throughout the summer.
Two new quilt classes start in June. The first is an embroidered wall hanging “Dashing Through the Snow”. This is the most enjoyable embroidery project I have completed in a while! The blocks stitch quickly and quilting may be either quilt-as-you-go or simple topstitch. This is a very attractive wallhanging which can be displayed all Winter, not just at Christmas. The kit we put together contains everything you need— fabric, batting, bobbin thread, and 24 1100yd cones of Robison-Anton embroidery thread! Plus simplified color stitchout instructions—no sense in you having to spend as long as I did putting the colors together!
For a totally different quilting experience, try the Color Wheel Quilt, from Quilt in a Day. This is a strip quilted Bargello design. While any colors certainly may be used, this design really pops with our new Serendipity Color Wheel fabrics! Each bolt shades through several different colors, allowing a maximum number of colors with a minimum amount of fabric! Available as a kit.
If it has been a while since you came to classes at Sandy’s, let me fill you in on the regular ongoing events for each month. Owner Classes are offered free to Sandy’s machine and software purchasers. As always, these are unlimited—you can come as often as you wish, and there is no time limit. Check the calendar for the Owner Classes, but we urge you to make an appointment for the time that is most convenient for you, especially if you need an evening class. We want you to get the most from your fantastic Husqvarna Viking machine or Embroidery Software! There are also additional classes for Premier+ and the Epic/TOL (top of line) machines.
Every Monday afternoon (unless not shown on the calendar) Sandy’s encourages you to bring a project (and maybe a friend) to work on during the Sew Fun Open Sewing. It’s a great time to meet others who share your interests! Every Wednesday morning we offer a Software Help Sit-in—not a class, but a chance to ask questions, install software, or just get a little moral support while learning to use your embroidery software.
Sandy’s is now carrying a nice selection of Arrow and Kangaroo cabinets and chairs. Also Sew Steady tables and Westalee Free Motion Templates. If you like to make bags, purses, and travel accessories, we have samples made up of several By Annie Patterns and her Soft and Stable foam—the absolute best for shaping! We also carry many other lines of bag and organizer patterns, as well as different colors of mesh screening for fun Summery totes.
Always check the website and Facebook for Husqvarna Viking’s monthly specials—in June all machines and software will be 25% Off MSRP!
