Bargello Runner by Faye
Tuesdays, Nov. 7 & 14, 12:30-4 pm
Confident beginner with rotary cutting skill
Class fee is $85 and includes book, fabric kit, instruction, and free open sewing to finish.  We continue to run this class since it is a good introduction to the bargello technique before tackling a large quilt.  You will learn strip piecing and how to stay organized when working with lots of little pieces.  Master the technique then move on to make one of dozens of the patterns included in the book.

All of our classes are limited to 4 students and they fill quickly.  Call 941-330-0993 for a space.  Double Wedding Class January 3-17 is FILLED.  We will create another session in January.  Call to put your name on the waiting list.

Just received a box full of Hoffman Bali poppies in all available colors.  Each poppie pack has 20 different strips.  Sometimes one doesn't need 40 or more strips for a project  One poppy pack will make a large Mondo bag with a few strips left over.
New FQ packets of Grunge.  We are just unpacking two new collections by Northcott.
  Canada Goose and Alaskan Moose.

Leaving Friday for one more trip up north, hopefully the last trip before final closing on the property.  It's good I was able to get this accomplished during the summer slower time.  We have a long list of items to be custom made and hand quilted.  Our work order list is CLOSED.  We need to work diligently to get out all the christmas orders, then will review the list.  So if you have something to be done, please call after January 1.  If you have not been promised or given a work order, please do not call before January 1.

The parking lot will finally be paved in the next two weeks.  The workers are trying to get it done in the evening on a weekend so as not to impact the shop hours.  Will try to give you a heads up soon as there is a firm date.

That's all for now.  Time to get busy binding several pieces that just came out of the frame.
