The Quality Sewing & Vacuum Sew Fun is pretty fun. They serve food and beverages and give you discounts on in store purchases. Initially, I didn’t join the group because it is basically a giant sales pitch. However, after going a few times there are several tips that the speaker gives and they have a time for show and tell where any one can show off what they’ve made. And those two things have won me over. I love seeing what people in my community are doing and being inspired to craft!

The Tunic Bible

Quilting Book
Mariners Compass

 

For January the focus was on Mariner’s Compass Blocks without Paper Piecing & The Tunic Bible. I don’t quilt but a lot of the ladies there liked the concept of the mariner’s compass, and it did look pretty amazing. But I was excited about the Tunic Bible by Sarah Gunn & Julie Starr. I’ve been looking for a simple top pattern that I can perfect and then manipulate and this book is exactly that. We’ll see what comes of it.

*Oh! one of the tips the speaker gave was to wash linen fabric at least 7 times before sewing it.*

When I checked in at Quality Sewing & Vacuum they also gave out a free pattern for a scrap lunch tote by The Sewing Loft. It is a quilting project but since I have stacks of fabric in my craft room I should probably give it a try.

Happy Crafting!
