This Christmas quilt is so cute and fun. It reflects the "merry and bright" of the holiday season. Crimson Tweed, by Sue Spargo, is a wool on cotton applique quilt and finishes 39"x51." Crimson Tweed is a nine month block of the month program at $29.99 a month. The book and floss are sold separately. This would make a great present for the appliquer and wool lover in your life! Get yours today!

Make-n-Take Christmas Ornament Workshop
Join us for a photo ornament workshop with the experts from Soft Scrap! Fun for ages 8 and up! Great class for mother and daughter! Fun way to preserve Christmas card photos!

Use your photo to create a one of a kind Christmas Ornament with the Soft Scrap technique. In class we explore the basics of printing on fabric with special tips and techniques to help you get the most out of your photos.  It's a simple hands-on project that also uses simple embellishment techniques such as ribbon work and ruching, along with lots of other embellishment ideas.  What a fun project to hang on your tree, or what a great gift idea.

This fun workshop will be offered on Saturday, Dec. 14, or Monday, Dec. 16, from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. Class kit is required and will be provided at the beginning of each class. No need to bring sewing machines to class. Enroll here.

Please check your Happy Gram and Facebook before coming down for the Open House due the forecast of inclement weather.


Wool Applique The Quilted Crow Way Class
Using one of the Quilted Crow Girl Designs Weekender patterns, we will show you how to applique on wool with cotton thread the way our friends Down Under applique their gorgeous quilts. Here's a hint ... you'll learn a smaller stitch and use staples. The Wool Starter Kit is perfect for this class. Register today.
