What's this "Foot Club" All About?! 

The Foot Club will be meeting once a month to learn about new feet! The end product is this mixed-media foot book. With each foot, we'll do a few samples, and create a page for the book.

This coming Saturday (9/28), we'll be working with #20, the open embroidery foot. Yes, #20 correlates to a BERNINA specific foot, but all machine brands are welcome, as long as you have a presser foot similar to this one. Working with #20 and the twin needle, we'll learn techniques of how to hem knits, and create amazing double stitches. 

As we go along, these pages will become double-sided and will have eyelets applied so they can be bound between the covers that will be made after a few pages are finished. I added some important sewing advice to my last page, along with band-aids.

I hope you'll join us on our journey to learning new techniques, new feet, and getting creative!!

Happy Housewife Dress 

Colette Patterns: Crepe Wrap Dress

The Daley Review

Oh My Goodness. I must have this in every color. This pattern was so easy to fit and to put together. With exception to the darts, I did absolutely everything on my serger. I whipped this up in about 3 hours. It was so much fun!

I used Newcastle Fabrics' "Happy Days" fabric collection for this dress. I fussy-cut the top so there would be a perfectly centered woman. We will be offering this dress as a 2 session class in the Fall. It will be Saturday, October 12th and Saturday, October 19th from 10:00-12:00pm.

You can enroll right now by following this link!

Happy Sewing, and I hope to see you this Fall!

Glimma Quilt 

I must admit that I am madly in love with Lotta Jansdotter's new collection of fabrics, "Glimma".

The colors are rich, and understated. The patterns are graphic, and simple.

I whipped up the "Glimma" quilt top in only one weekend. I spent a few hours cutting, and then a few hours piecing. The time flew by. There are 2 color ways for this pattern, one called "orange pekoe" and the other called "chamomile". Both are absolutely stunning.

I tend to always lean towards pink, so of course, the color way I chose was "chamomile". As I said in my friendlythreads blog post about this, this quilt top will be taught as a class, and the kits are available here at the store. The kits, which include all the fabric requirements to make the 75"x87" quilt top, plus the binding, are here at Daley's for $99.00/each. The class is coming up in September, it's scheduled for 2 sessions, Saturday September 7th and 14th from 10:00-2:00pm. In the class, we'll learn how to cut out all the needed pieces with a rotary cutter, and then we'll start piecing the top. The class is designed so that you will not need to do any homework, I know you all have enough going on! Between both sessions, your entire quilt top should be done.

Stop by the shop to check out the sample we have hanging up!

We still have seats available in this class, you can even enroll online!
