Summer Fun

First, just a reminder:

We will be closed 
Tuesday, July 2 through Sunday, July 7 
for Independence Day. 
Enjoy your holiday!

We are using our time off to stitch up some new fun projects for you!  This is what I made over the weekend:

A knitted bodice and a fabric skirt!!  This pattern is Two-Summer Sundress, a free Ravelry pattern.  You can see the details here.  

I really had fun making this!  I tweaked the skirt construction slightly, adding the tucked hem and of course, using french seams!  

I am teaching this as a class starting next Thursday, July 11, if you'd like to make one.  The pattern is sized from 6 months to 8 years.  You can see the class details here.

Make sure you check out the other wonderful classes we have scheduled for July:  Knitted Christmas Stockings, and beautiful quilts by Kathleen Baden, Theresa Johnston-Crews, and our newest teacher, Jonnie Miller!  Her Double Dutch looks like a lot of fun!

Okay, I'm off to join Susann, Jandell and Shirley for some sewing time.  I'll take some pictures of their projects to show you later this week.

Don't forget to take time to stitch over the 4th!  For me that is truly the "pursuit of happiness!"

All the best,
