My favorite part of getting together is the inspiration I'm left with after seeing what everyone has made or is working on so please feel free to bring a sewing project that you've recently completed, want to start, or fabric, books, patterns, etc. to share with us.
Hope to see everyone soon.

My youngest son's room is monkeys and I've been searching for bedding to transition him to a big boy bed. I came across this adorable quilt and am contemplating making it. However, the thought of cutting all those little fabric pieces is daunting to me. I love to sew...the physical act of creating / stitching. I do not like the prep work of cutting pattern pieces. I have to mull it over a bit more before I commit. I'm so slow he will probably be in college before I could complete it and I don't think his fraternity brothers would appreciate my labor of love.

We were discussing our favorite places to buy fabric and supplies during the meeting. Since we don't have many options locally I buy most of my "ingredients" online so I thought I'd share my favorite sites with everyone. If you have a favorite fabric or notions supplier that isn't listed here please share it with us!
I hope you enjoy browsing my favorite fabric sites!

Hope this recent SUNNY weather is putting a spring in your step!
Just a reminder that our February Sew Southern Sewing Club meeting is this Saturday, February 20th from 1:30-3:30 at my house. If you would like to join us and need directions please email me. You can bring your machine to work on projects or just come and hang out with us. Please always feel free to bring patterns, tutorials, fabrics, books or ideas to share with the group.
I'd like to start a fabric swap box so if you have any fabric scraps or pieces that you are not going to use yourself and would like to donate please bring them for our swap box.
If you completed or are working on our February group sew along project please bring your creation....I'd love to see your aprons!
Here is a picture of the nursing apron I completed since I already mailed it off to its intended recipient. I made it reversible with coordination fabrics and a terry cloth corner on each side for easy wipe-ups.
Hope to see everyone this Saturday, Tonya
