Make N Take: MEC Edition, USA:  

This is a special Machine Embroidery Club in Edition to Verna’s monthly club.  Jenn found an awesome patriotic project and wants you to come make it with her! Make it using a stand as the instructions do or use your imagination and make them into a quilt, placemat or banner!  You will complete this in one class!  All machine types are welcome.  You just need a usb.  You do need a 6x10 hoop!  If your machine doesn’t have that hoop it’s a great time to get a new Brother!  Give me a week and you could have your new baby for the club! In just 3 hours you can have this awesome project made! It's on my list to make people for Christmas gifts! Come join me so I am motivated to keep doing MEC extra clubs!

When: 3) Saturday, August 25th @9am to noon.  

Cost:  $24.99 Includes Design and kit.  Stand not included.  Please sign up in advance so I have enough kits made!

Charity Project: Anti-Ouch Pillow:

We promised we would do this project again this summer!  Here is your chance to come help!  Please come to our special sewing Make N Takes to help sew the Anti-Ouch Pillow Pouch for Breast Cancer Patients.  Pauline found the pillow to be a great comfort after surgery last year.  We have fabric ready to be sewn.  If you have fabric you would like to donate, we need 3/8 or 13.5” of washed cotton.  We have the filling that you can use.  They do not take long to sew but give hours of comfort to those who need it.  You can visit the website at  The pillow/pouch will be distributed to local hospitals and treatment centers for our sisters! If one of these times do not work, let us know you are coming to one of the sewing circles to help out! Level 100.  

When: 3)Monday, August 20th @10:30am to 1:30pm, 4)Friday, August 31 @ 5:30 to 8:30pm.

 Hosted by: Pauline and staff!

Pillow Wrap:  

This is a project that lets you dress up your toss pillows with a bit of your personal creativity. A pillow wrap is a removable “belt” that is fastened around a pillow. It can feature a special event, a holiday, a seasonal accent, a special interest or just a focal point in your room. Joan has made samples using various techniques including chenille, applique and quilt block. Each wrap is finished to be reversible so that your project can be a two-in-one with a choice of closures. This makes a great gift and is readily supported by your stash! The base fabric is either ½ yard of one fabric or 2 fabrics measuring ¼ yard each. Small pieces of batting and backing give a quilted finished look. If you’d like to give chenille a try, Joan will show you how. Level: 200.  This is a 2 week class!

When: Wednesdays August 22nd and 29th.  Session 1: 1 to 4pm.  Session 2: 5:30 to 8:30pm. 

Cost: $25 + supplies.  Teacher: Joan Kugler

Machine Embroidery Club: Fringed Flowers.

 This month we will be doing a new technique.  We will be making fringed flowers in a vinyl covered mason jar. You will find that it’s easier than it looks.  All machine brands are welcome as long as the machine uses an USB and you know how to use it!  If you are a Kimberbell fan you will love this Club!

When: Session 1: Thursday, August 23rd @1 to 4pm. Session 2: Thursday, August 30th @6 to 9pm.

Cost: Free with purchase of CD   Hosted by: Verna Spargo
