Another shameless Jacquie Gering workshop plug!

There's still time and space for you to join us for a workshop with Jacquie Gering on Monday and Tuesday at Sew Much More.  Sign up here!  Just to give you a little extra incentive, I'm busy stuffing goody bags for workshop participants.  We have so much good stuff for you!



Aurifil full size thread in 2026
Atkinson Designs Glitter Village pattern
Modern Yardage custom quilt label 
Schmetz ABC Needle Guide
Sew Sweetness free PDF pattern of your choice

Remember the Clinique gift with purchase?  Man, I was crazy about those things.  I'm even more excited about this sewing related gift with purchase worth $35!!  Don't forget - if you've signed up for one workshop already and want to take a second, you'll get 20% off the second. 

Also, The Modern Quilt Guild needs volunteers at Quilt Market and Festival.  Sign up for that here.

Jaquie Gering Workshop Announcement & WIP Wednesday

Beginning now, if you sign up for both the Stitch and Flip and the Modern Crazy Piecing workshops, we'll give you 20% off the price of the second workshop.  That's only $80 for the second workshop!

Did I mention that there's a great swag bag involved?  For each workshop you attend, you'll be getting full-size products from Aurifil, Modern Yardage, Schmetz, Sew Sweetness patterns, and Atkinson Designs?  How awesome is that?  Two workshops = 2 swag bags.  You won't be disappointed!  

Workshops are on Monday, October 28 and Tuesday, October 29 from 10 am - 4 pm at Sew Much More in Austin.  There will be a 30 min lunch break so you can bring a lunch or there are some fast food restaurants nearby.  So what are you waiting for?  Sign up to take both classes!  


Now, onto WIP Wednesday.  I have nothing to show you this week, except this really old picture of my cat Carlton wanting to sew with me.  He doesn't fit in there anymore... Hopefully you've been getting more sewing done than me!

WIP Wednesday

Oh man, I've been busy packing up the sewing room!  I don't think I'll be getting any sewing time in at least until next week, after we've moved.  Have you been sewing anything lately?  Purchased any new fabric - maybe some Mendocino that you're going to share with me??  I searched to the end of the internet to find an Architextures bundle to use for the Jacquie Gering Stitch and Flip workshop.



Just a few public service announcements - sign up for the November 8-10 retreat here.  What a great way to get all your holiday sewing finished early!

Don't forget to RSVP to our Jacquie Gering lecture and trunk show here.  We still have room in the workshops, so invite a friend and sign up here.  Do you need some incentive?  We have a fabulous goody bag for each workshop participant that includes brands like Aurifil, Atkinson Designs, Sew Sweetness, Schmetz, and C&T Publishing.  The workshops will be so much fun, so don't miss out on this great opportunity!

WIP Wednesday

Have you had any time to sew this week?  I'm busy packing boxes and picking paint colors for my new sewing room!  I did manage to sneak some time and make a couple bee blocks for my Munki in the Middle Flickr swap.  Show us your projects!
