Sew Along

Kinship 100 Blocks Sew Along

We will be having a guild sew-along with the Kinship: 100 Blocks Sampler. For those of you familiar with the #100Days100Blocks project that has been hosted by Angie Wilson of Gnome Angel on Instagram with the Tula Pink book the past couple of years, the Kinship pattern is this year’s project. You are able can sew at your own pace or join in with the sew along that is taking place. There are 50 – 8″ blocks and 50- 4″ x 8″ blocks in this pattern. It’s a great skill builder pattern.

As we will be hosting this as a guild sew along, you are free to sew the blocks at your own pace or to follow along with the block a day time frame.

We are currently taking orders for hard copies of the books, which provide machine (or hand) piecing instructions. The books are $25 and come with a 2.5″ HST template (and free shipping!). The book sales will also be part of a guild charity fundraiser, as the books will cost us $15/book and the remainder will go to help fund our charity efforts.

We will be accepting orders until Monday, June 10th. This way, we can submit our book order and then have the books by the end of the month sew-in for those that want to participate in the sew along. Arrangements can also be made by emailing the board if you would like to receive your book before the July meeting.

If you are interested, please fill out this form with your name and email. Payment information will be provided after your form has been submitted.

There are also foundation paper pieced and English paper piecing options for this pattern.

Here’s the class description from Sandy:

In this class you will learn how to make Selvage Foundations, which are the base for all selvage projects. You will see how much fun it is to make projects with these foundations.

I will be giving you three patterns: Luggage Tag, Chicken Pincushion and Sewing Machine Mat. The Luggage Tag and the Chicken Pincushion are a great way to learn how to build foundations with your selvages. I will have the supplies for these for these two projects in class.

You may purchase my book “Save the Selvages” in class for $20. If you wish to make one of the sixteen projects in the book, I suggest you purchase the book before class. The supply lists for these projects are in the book.

North Central County Sew Ins

We have secured space at the North University Community Library (805 & Nobel) on three upcoming Saturdays for sew-ins!

The sew-ins will take place from 9:30am – 1:30pm. We have the space booked for the following Saturdays:

  • March 23rd
  • April 20th
  • May 18th

Tables, chairs, and power outlets are provided by the library, but we will need to bring extension cords along with any other sewing equipment that each person wants to bring to the sew-in. There is also a refrigerator available for our use to keep food or drinks cold while we are there.

Parking: It was recommended to us by the library to park behind the building while we are there for the sew-in, as the parking in the front of the building has a 2-hour time limit.

All members and non-members are welcome to join us for this sew-in!
