- Please bring a sewing project that you’ve completed or want to complete representative of your sewing style to share with everyone.
- If you’ve completed July’s project, the sewing machine cover, bring yours….I’d love to see what everyone came up with. If you’d like to complete the machine cover but haven’t had a chance to (that would be me!) bring your machine and supplies and we’ll work on it together at the meeting.
- I’d like to start a lending library so if you have any patterns, sewing books, magazines, tutorials, etc that you would like to donate to the club please bring them.
- During the meeting Jenny Brooks will give us a little instruction on sewing patchwork blankets. Here is one of her completed projects......SO CUTESince this is a club to help everyone grow as a sewer, you may always bring any questions you have about a project you are working on. We will do our best to work through the problem area together and get you back on your sewing way.
I look forward to seeing everyone Saturday!

I don't have alot of storage in my home so I have to keep my sewing machine on an open shelf in my bedroom. The ugly plastic cover that houses my machine is just downright depressing to look at all day so when I came across the above photo I was literally giddy. I can't wait to pimp out my machine!
I thought this would be a fun and simple project for us to start with. If you decide to sew along with us I'd love to see your finished product so please email me photos.....I'll post them on our blog site. If you complete your cover in time to bring it to our first meeting please do so....I'd love to have a show and tell!
Following are a few links to some sewing machine cover tutorials that I thought were simple and well written. Martha Stewart Sewing Machine Cover Tutorial
Member's completed covers below.... now these make for pimpin' sewing machines.
