Hi all!

Happy August!  Yes!  How fast time flies!  

What about slowing it down a notch and enjoying a bit of HAND SEWING?  

OK, don't "tune-out", read on!
Sewing is proven to be a "stress reducer", but have you ever hit a wall, and found that you just don't want to carry on with any of your current projects?  

Try a little HAND SEWING.  Yes, we've got just the project & a group of fun stitchers meeting at Charlotte's Sew Natural on Wednesday afternoons (that's today) from 1:30 on, just sitting around and stitching by hand.  

Come join them, stitch, embroidery, whatever, by hand.  It is "free" time. :)

Most of them are currently working on LUCY BOSTON'S PATCHWORK OF THE CROSSES quilt. Click here for more info on Linda Franz's book.

Want to get started on your own?  Click on the picture above for a link to the PERFECT KIT to get you started using your own SCRAPS.

This Saturday is SECOND SATURDAY.  We open the doors to Charlotte's Sew Natural at 8:45 a.m.  My presentation begins at 9 a.m.  All are welcome.  

This Saturday I'll be talking more on setting sampler blocks as shown here, as well as using 10" squares (from pre-cut sets) as a source for variety creating gorgeous sampler blocks like the ones we are doing together.

There will be "Show & Share" so feel free to drop in!
This is one block in the Second Saturday quilt pattern shown in a traditional print, COUNTRY FRENCH from Maywood.  I started with a stack of pre-cut 10" squares.  That gives me the most variety and is fun to work with.  I will be sharing measurements in the FREE Second Saturday class which starts at 9 a.m.  
Meeting THURSDAY AUGUST 13TH at 1:30 & 6:30, a BONUS Kim Diehl class.  All are welcome, no fee.  
Mary will be introducing this KIM DIEHL MINI SAMPLER project.  

If you were a Simple Whatnots 2 member, or if you decide to join Simple Whatnots 3, which starts in September, you will be eligible to purchase the complete kit including pattern, for this delightful small quilt, finishing approx. 28 inches square.  

Kim Diehl's SIMPLE WHATNOTS 3 is a 6 month class/club, meeting the afternoon & evenings each second Thursday starting in September and ending in February 2016.  

Class members will have first opportunity to purchase the limited edition KITS.  These patterns are only available with the purchase of the kit.  Kim has reserved their copyrights for future use, and at this time, they are limited to distribution with fabrics only.

Click here for details.
In September, we'll start a new SAMPLER QUILT CLASS.  It will meet for 12 months, always on the 3rd Thursday of the month, 10 a.m. & 6:30 p.m.

You will make a FEATHERED STAR, using any color fabrics you wish!

We'll have kits for both versions shown here and will be happy to help you with other selections & fabric placements too.  Pattern included with class fee, so let us know if you already own this pattern.

First class:  Thursday Sept. 17th.
The third installation of our Artists Meet & Greet series
