We have a "Stay and Sew" Day Coming Up

After the business meeting on Tuesday February 18, 2014, we will have a "stay and sew day." Doniene Fullagar will be the instructor for how to make  the quilted clutch/purse she showed us last month. She will have complete instructions to hand out at the meeting.
Bring a sack lunch or we can order PIZZA !
Supply list for Quilted Clutch/Purse

2(two) - 20”-24” squares of coordinating fabric.

1(one) - 20”-24” square of batting.

90”-100” of coordinating binding
(I use 2 ½” strips for a French binding)

2(two) coordinating large buttons (1 ¼ “ - 1 ½ “)

2(two) coordinating elastic pony tail holders

1 yard of “something” for a handle: Poly belting, tapestry trim, cording
2 ½” x 36” strip of fabric & 2” x 35 ½” piece of batting to make a fabric handle.

If you want a detachable handle, you will also need
 two snaps and two plastic rings and Coordinating Thread.

Heavy duty needle (if you attach the handle permanently)

Needle and Thread for any hand work.

Plan to stay, we will have FUN !
