Sit and Sew 22 March

This coming Saturday is our next Sit and Sew Day and it's time to book your place! You must email me if you want to join us as we have been getting very busy lately and places are limited. Please don't just turn up on the day as you may be disappointed. Here are the important details:

Date: Saturday 22 March
Time: 10am to 4 pm (arrive from 9.40 onwards)
Place: Deepdale Community Centre, Boston Spa, LS23 6EH
Cost: Around £3 depending on number of people attending
Tea and coffee provided

This time our project is a lovely Sewing Caddy (as in the photo) which Sandra and Linda introduced to us a couple of months ago. Click on this link for the free pattern by Gina Bean Quilts. You will need to click on the link in the post to open the instructions and then click on 'File' then 'Print PDF' or 'Download' to save it to your computer first before printing it. You must print your own copy to bring to the SASD as it is lots of pages so we will not be printing these for you! You may want to cut out the pieces before the day so you can get on quickly with the sewing.

 I'll bring some fabulous stiffening 'Decovil Light' (£8 per m) and thin Fusible Fleece (£6 per m) in case you want to use them to make your bag nice and firm, plus the usual fabrics, threads and notions for those who want to browse the portable shop with absolutely no pressure to buy.

Of course you don't have to make the caddy, you could work on any project of your choice. Don't forget to bring your lunch and something for show and tell as well as all your sewing stuff!

To get you in the mood here are some photos from last month's Show-n-Tell:
