Summer Sew and Go Series at ETC begins!

Our Summer Sew and Go Series at ETC begins next week!  Tuesday is the day we kick off our series of Seasonal banners!  We are going to hit up 6 different holidays thru the summer making a banner about this size, maybe a bit shorter, maybe a bit skinnier, but all will be somewhat this size.  You can hang them up, put them on a table for a runner, I want to put mine out by my front door, take one down stick the next up!  $20 gets you your kit and you can enjoy making our first one for SUMMER !  We are hoping to take orders for anyone that might like this great metal hanger.  A coworker at ETC, her Dad is building them so we'll be taking special orders on tuesday if you'd like one that fits perfect!  He'll have them done and ready for you to pick up at the next Sew and Go.
 1st and 3rd tuesdays each month, we have a really good time!  And "summer" will be officially ready to hang!

Something sweet!

So I've been "missing" amongst the blogging world again......Life!......but I"m gonna post a few and work backwards for my own sanity!  So today I'll start with something sweet!  Last day of school Sweetness!  We tried a new fix it frozen yogurt place with Amy and the boys, quite near their house....WE WILL BE BACK!  It was great, they had smaller cups so no matter what, the boys could have fun making their creation without filling a 2 lb cup!  So thanks Kiwi Loco for having smaller cups than anyplace else!  Here is Aiden's delight!
 But actually this was the sweetest part of the day!  Celebrating the last day of school with these 3!  We now have Aiden who is officially a 4th grader, next is Ethan who officially will go to 2 different preschools next year filling his days with fun!  And Garrett, who's tooth is coming in just in time to be a 1st grader!  Can you believe it!

Sew and Go

Here's our Sew and Go project for this next week at ETC! Something new and fun!  It's a great little take along sewing kit.  Little pin cushion in the center, 4 pockets for thread and necessities, a ribbon to hold scissors in a pocket...
 A little needle case and the best part is...
 It all folds up!  Tight and cute to take along in your bag or suitcase!  Now you will be set to do that handwork in style!  This is actually the bottom with the button....
 And here is the top part all folded up.  We'll have several color choices to choose from...May 21st at 11:00.   It's our last Sew and Go before our SUMMER SERIES BEGINS....June, July, August, we've got a great fun series planned for the summer!  What better place to hang out 2 Tuesdays a month in the cool air conditioning at ETC!

Chevron Trivet at Sew and Go

So here's a sneak peek at our Sew and Go project for this next week at ETC.  We are going to learn this great chevron block and turn it into a wonderful trivet!  Complete with batting and insulbrite!  It's nice and big so you can plop that casserole right on top with no worries!  The chevrons are so fun and easy you'll definitely want to do more...in fact I'm thinking quilt blocks would be so fun! I can see a whole quilt done out of this block with sashing.......see what my brain does!   All those itty bitty pieces....come see how easy they go together!  It really is a perfect charm pack project too...hmmmm do you have any of those sitting around waiting for a project!  $20 includes your entire kit with thread...and all the fun people that come to Sew and Go.....oh and Barb and I too! Lots of color ways to choose from in the kits!  Lisa has them all cut for us and ready to go!  May 7 11:00, ETC's "cool" lab is the place! 
And it's May....when we start talking about our SUMMER SERIES!  Come hear all about it! June, July, August.... Sew and Go Summer Series ....  It's right around the corner.... All 6 Sew and Go classes this summer that coordinate!!!! 30 is our number of spots these days so you don't want to miss out!
