crafty day

How would you like an invitation to my home? I will be hosting a day of sewing! I would love to help some of my friends get ready for holiday gift giving. And what better, than to give a gift that was handmade by you!

This first crafty day you will learn to make a pillowcase. All you need is your own sewing machine, fabric, and basic sewing knowledge. The class cost is $15.00 and is limited to the first 8 registered students. I will provide some light drinks, snacks and a few door prizes!

1 - 4 p.m.
at my home

I have made a few of my own pillowcases for my own three little ones. It's a great little way to decorate their room, when one year they love hotwheels and the next year they love pokemon. And for your girl friends, it's a nice gift to make up a pair of pillowcases in a sweet fabric combination that will compliment their bedroom. Since the fabric choices are unlimited, this could really be an inexpensive gift for you to make for everyone on your shopping list.

Just email me at if you are interested and I will then mail you a material list with your sign up confirmation.

Some other classes I would love to host before the holidays will be making a scarfe, knitting a hat, and scrappy fabric coasters. What are you interested in learning to do?

My emails just dont want to get to you!!! Here is my email below!! =]

Hi there Katie,

Thanks so much for your message!! We are madly packing and trying to get our families
sorted to cope without us for 10 days! I so wish that I could sleep on the plane - I have
never managed it to date but who knows, maybe I will finally succeed. I think I am too
nervous that I just cant relax enough and I have never been very talented at sleeping in a
sitting position - oh well, we will survive and adrenaline can be a big help when sleep
fails you! =]
How sweet of your to send us a gifty!! That sounds very exciting!!! Are your sister and
mum going to Market as part of a business visiting or are they having a booth? It is so
exciting and I cant wait, the whole atmosphere and all of the new people and opportunities
are just so amazing! I hope you wont feel too left behind!
Enjoy your week and thanks again - cant wait to see our little surprise!

Melly & Rosie
