GOBBLE GOBBLE GOBBLE November Class Schedule


Hope everyone had a happy Halloween and all your ghost and goblins behaved themselves.  Well having gone to all the festival they have had so far ( Micanopy, Macintosh, and some small church ones) It makes my creative juices start flowing.  I know that you know what I am talking about.  We stroll by a booth that has something really cute made in it and you see the price you say to yourself,”self, I know that I could make that and I could make that a lot cheaper.”  I’m right.  We have all done that one time or another.  Or if you are some of my friends that don’t sew, “They say, I’ll just get Tracy to make me one.”  UG!  I better get busy.   I think that I have included some really fun projects in this months schedule.  Hopefully giving you enough time to make some fantastic Christmas gifts.  Some of the projects that we will be making are for multiples.  And here is the good thing.  Not a lot of fabric for some.  I hope to see you all this month.  Come sit and sew awhile.  We’ll have a lot of fun together.
