March Madness Class Schedule


     Hey there everyone time for the new class list.  Sorry that it is coming so late but time slipped away from me last month.  We have been very  busy at the Sew Sistah Sew Studio getting ready to bring you new classes.  Stitching samples and getting pictures ready to show.

     We had alot of fun making our sewing machine covers, chair pin cushions, and of course our miniature class.  Which has been a great class to learn new techniques but not having to put them into a large quilt.

     I hope this finds you all well and enjoying the nice crisp weather we are all experiencing.  I know for me it helps with the hot flashes.

Quilted fabric covered Chipwood basket



30$ class fee

9$ pattern

supplies needed:

  • 1-1/2 yard two sided quilted fabric
  • 1 package of double fold bias binding (Yikes! I know but this WILL make your life easier in this application)
  • 2 yards of 2″ wide lace for around the outside of your basket
  • pieces of scrap batting to cover the raw material of your basket
  • matching thread
  • sewing machine
  • walking foot
  • usual sewing supplies

I just love these baskets so easy and sew cute to take with you to classes.  We will be making the large version of this basket but I will give you directions for the small one too.  I made the small one for my daughter Kami when she was a little thing.  I made into a little sewing kit  for her.  She would put her cross stitch supplies in it to take on trips.  Everyone would comment on it.

I will provide the baskets and will have them ready for you to work on.  You can find the fabric needed for this project at JoAnn’s or even online from Moda at They come in beautiful colors ways.  However quite pricey.  They run about 20.00 per yard.  At least at JoAnn’s you can use your coupon for it and get it at a 40% discount.  I have seen some pretty ones there.

Bring lunch and I will provide desert and drink.

Thanks for reading my blog and participating in my classes.  You are all what makes the Sew Sistah Sew Studio a great success.   Come sit and sew awhile,  we will have a great time together.
