Open Sew

Have projects to complete? Come to Open Sew every Sunday from 1-4pm at our Spring Location.

Humble Location: Beautiful Backs

Your quilt deserves to be the complete package. Bring your own completed top and coordinating left over scraps to start perfectly piecing a beautiful back. There is no limit to the possibilities. Several examples will be available to inspire your imagination.

Humble Location: Kimberbell Jingle All The Way

"Jingle All The Way" is a patchwork quilt of Christmas surprises with more than a dozen machine embroidered designs and new techniques like chenille trees and traditional quilt blocks, miniature fringe wreaths and Mylar lights that adorn the row of houses. The vinyl applique makes the snow globes appear real. The festive flying geese strips are also pieced in-the-hoop. Come join us as we celebrate Christmas in July. This is a six day class, scheduled over a three month period. Some "homework" is involved, but by the end of the classes, you will have completed this absolutely stunning quilt. An embroidery machine is required but only the Bernina medium and large oval hoops are used. For your convenience, this class will be taught at both of our store locations.

Smocking, an age-old needle art, is simply embroidery stitches accomplished over pleats. Using just a needle and thread you, the needle artist, can create texture, flexibility, design and a bit of whimsy to most any fabric. Each student will be provided with a pre-pleated fabric sampler on which to practice the basic smocking stitches as well as needles and floss. The stitches taught are: outline, stem, cable, baby wave, trellis, and floweretts. A new vocabulary of smocking terminology accompanied by the techniques needed to execute the stitches will open the door to discover a new passion lasting a life time.

Merely the sound of the word "Heirloom" conjures up an image of genteel ladies sitting on the front porch, sipping mint julep tea, with their needle and thread in hand. This class will introduce those new to this beautiful, daintily- detailed embellishment to the updated world of heirloom sewing by machine. The techniques shared will include lace to entredeux, lace to fabric, entredeux to fabric, lace to lace, gathered fabric to lace, and entredeux to gathered lace. The pace is slow, the sewing is easy and the fabrics are simply scrumptious to the fingers. The students will perform hands-on sewing activities.
