August class line-up and Sept Calendar

The Malls are filling with families getting ready for back to school but there is plenty going on at Sew Have Fun before then!  
Aug 9 "Be Merry"  This 6 session Block of the Month comes together into a lovely 60x75" quilt or 2 Wall hangings and as you can guess the theme is festive...but not too festive, it is the kind of project that you can hang most of the winter;  we love that!  Pattern $25 (one time charge),  each kit is $25.
We really have Christmas on the mind because August 10 is our Christmas Club.  It is never too late to join this dynamic group and get a head start on your Christmas sewing!  This week's project is a lovely blue, white and silver wallhanging, 1-3pm.  Cost of kit is $19.99
For something a little more seasonal join us for the class "Butterfly in Flight"  If you are nervous of free motion you will learn some techniques to help you overcome your fears!  Class and kit is $40, August 13 1:30-4 or Saturday, Aug 17, 1:30-4.  Bring your walking foot, Free Motion Foot and 1/4" foot and a variety of threads.
It is always a challenge to get everyone up and back on schedule in the Fall but our cheerful placemats will help start the day off right!  Wednesday, August 14 1:30-3:30 Class and kit is $30 (Makes 4) If you have the Phillips 10 degree ruler you will love being able to use it for another project and use some of those decorative stitches on your machine to embellish your placemats!
If you have never tried 3D work give it a try on Friday, August 16 1:30-3:30 and make a leaf or flower shaped bowl.  If you enjoy thread painting or want to experiment this is the project for you!   Bring your free motion foot and a variety of threads.  $20  
Our Scrap Club meets on Tuesday August 20, usually we meet in the morning but with sewing camp at that time we have moved to the afternoon (1pm).  Use up your stash and make something beautiful!
Another stash buster is the Mondo Bag!  This fun class uses 208 2.5" squares and makes up into a large tote.  1pm, Aug 21  $20 (you bring the squares, some homework done ahead of class will help you finish in the time frame)
Come for Tea on August 23 at 2pm  Goodies and great ideas and a fun visit with sewing sisters and exciting news, too!  This afternoon will have you buzzing with excitement!
August 24  Closed for the Day  Come visit us at the Blackstock Fair, we are doing some hands on projects for kids and adults, fun rain or shine as we are in the Rec Centre!  See you there!
August 27, All Day FREE Sew Along!  If you didn't get everything on your Summer Sewing To Do list drop in for our casual Sew Along and get caught up!
Aug 30 is the catch-up class for the "Be Merry" Block of the month 1-3pm
With all these projects there is no reason not to have something for show and tell when Guild meetings start again!  Know a young person interested in sewing...we are beginning registration for the Fall Sessions of Sew Cool Sewing Classes!
