I don’t know about you, but it seems like we JUST had our June Sew Fun sessions!  (Check out some of the great pictures posted on June 30 from the sessions on our Facebook Page). Time does fly when you are having “sew” much fun! Our Christmas in July Sew Fun events kick off at our Aurora store on Tuesday, July 18.  As always, our Sew Fun presenters have whipped up a variety of projects to share with you. They will be showing you some great projects that you can make for gifts or use for yourself.
