November Newsletter- Classes and Sales!

 

Hi Quilters!


This is another event that we are bringing to you to see what all the fuss of the Designer Epic 2 is all about. The Designer Epic 2 is a sewing/embroidery machine on steroids, featuring a built-in walking foot and an adjustable laser light seam guide! You will be making a project using this machine (one person to a machine). Our Husqvarna Viking Educator, Darrelle Anderson from Spokane will also bring another amazing trunk show and will demonstrate many many techniques and stitches.
Reserve your spot NOW, as we only have 11 spots available per day:

WHEN: Tuesday, December 1st, 2021 @ 10am to 4pm
Wednesday, December 2nd, 2021 @ 9am to 3pm


WHERE: Hampton Inn Conference Room
2701 Nezperce Drive, Lewiston ID

COST: $75 (includes your project kit)
Morning snacks and lunch is provided for the day NOTE: You can choose one of the days or both of the
days...whichever you choose, the fee is $75.

WHY?: To see why THIS machine is the PERFECT machine for sewing, machine embroidery, free motion and quilting! ...AND to have a ton of fun! Day One we will be making a super cute apron using many techniques. Day Two we will be making a really cute wallet using machine embroidery as well as sewing techniques. You will also be learning how to use the Quilt Binding too and the Ruffler foot.

Below are pictures of the projects we will be doing:

As classes start back up again we are asking you to please respect people's health. If you are unwell, been tested for Covid, or been exposed to people with Covid-  please don't attend class. We understand not wanting to miss a fun learning and social experience, but it is unfair to put others at risk.   If you need to cancel attending a class, we will be delighted to try to reschedule the class for a future date.

Classes
NOTE:  All class supplies purchased through Home Grown Quilts is 15% off with your paid class fee…sweet deal right?

A few things with classes to be mindful of:
*If you have your project cut out- you will be able to spend class time learning and working on your project, rather than spending all of your time cutting. You will be much more excited about your projects if you are more prepared. 
Classes are a retreat- for a lot of people it's therapy of sorts. It's a time to have fun, learn together, and relax (unless you have a seam ripper in hand.) - Please be respectful of your fellow retreaters. While we love kids, and we have lots of them ourselves- most small children (such as toddlers/pre-k) seem to find our classes a bit boring. We have had some class members vocalize the frustration it brings when a relaxing class gets not so relaxing because of small people being unhappy or bored.  Let's let everyone have a happy experience! Unless a child is an active participant of the class, please try and find a different place for them to hang out.
