How was your summer?
I hope you found yourself in the sewing room with the AC pumping on those hot days. The new space is awesome. I absolutely love seeing everyone sewing, working on projects and spending time with friends just enjoying the day. The Education Center has 3 LARGE design walls, multiple ironing stations, 2 large cutting tables, GO! Fabric Cutter station complete with a large variety of dies for you to choose from. There’s lots of room for your Sew EZ Tables if you’d like to bring them to class. Come in for a visit and see the new shop.
There are so many exciting events, classes and workshops scheduled for this fall at SQSC. Shari and Lois from Kindred Quilters will be teaching their latest pattern the Take it ALL with You Bag – Join them in making this amazing bag in a 2-part workshop Saturday September 7th and Saturday 28th.
So many have requested Longarm Classes and now that I have the 2 computerized longarm machines in the Education Center we’re going to kick-off our Longarm Education Series on Sunday September 15th at 10:00 – 12 noon. I’ll begin with a “Back to Basics” refresher that will answer questions like “How should I load this quilt?” , “How do I start my quilting plan?”, TNT – Threads, Needles and Tensions – It’s easier than you think….REALLY! We’ll finish up with a Question and Answer session. This is the first in our monthly series of longarm classes. Imediately following each longarm workshop is our Computerized Quilting class. If you own an HQ Pro-Stitcher computerized system or want to learn more about them stay for the second half. SQSC is your longarm education resource center!
As you know, with every class you take at SCSQ you will receive a certificate for a *FREE Open Quilt or Sew class. Open Quilt or Sew Sessions are on Wednesday afternoon 1:00 – 3:30 PM and Thursday evening 6:00 – 8:30 PM each week. And now you can use your FREE Open Quilt or Sew certificate at our monthly Saturday Open Quilt or Sew! Woohoo! Check the schedule for the Saturday Open Quilt or Sew sessions. You must call ahead to register for class. Some restrictions apply.
It’s a “Sew-cation” No travel required. Join us Friday October 25th at 4:00PM for our first Sew-cation and don’t stop sewing until Sunday October 27th at 5:00PM. Well you may want to get a few hours sleep but the Education Center will be open with extended hours. Friday 4:00PM – midnight, Saturday 8:00AM – midnight and Sunday 8:00AM – 5:00PM That’s over 30 Hours of Sewing! Cost is $75. Sturbridge has a bunch of hotels. Make it a great weekend by staying in town or drive in each day. Leave all your stuff so you can get sewing as soon as you get to the Ed Center.
