January Sew Fun

by Cathy Ellsaesser, posted on

We are kicking off the new year with something we have never done before. For our January Sew Fun sessions, join us for a special spotlight on four different designers. Not only will we have many samples from the designers, we’ll also have some samples stitched out by our presenter as well.

Sew Kind of Wonderful

Sisters Jenny Pedigo, Helen Robinson, and Sherilyn Mortensen are the creative geniuses behind Sew Kind of Wonderful. With their Quick Curve Ruler they have changed the modern quilting community with their innovative curved piecing technique. Imagine curves that don’t require clipping or pinning.

In addition, they have the most fabulous modern quilting patterns. We have several on hand to show you, including Happy Together, a quilt perfect for a child’s room.
