What’s the Buzz: October Events at Rocky Mountain Sewing and Vacuum

We just wrapped up our Embellish Warm and Cozy event with Hope Yoder and, now, we are ready to host Taylor with Anita Goodesign for the two-day Anita’s University 501. But we also have other October events on tap.

Dolls and Daydreams Halloween Stuffies

First of our October events is a great class with Malory and Lisa of Sew Fun fame. Make a Mummy, Bat, Ghost and Spider on a top-of-the-line embroidery machine at our Event Center in the class Dolls and Day Dreams and Halloween Stuffies.

This is a one or two day event, depending on your preference. Come on Friday, October 4 and make the mummy and spider. Or come on Saturday, October 5th and make the ghost and bat. The one day class is $99.

If you “want it all”, then come both days and make all 4 stuffies for $149.

At the end of each day, you will take home two stuffies and a cd with embroidery files and instructions to make these stuffies as well as two bonus stuffies (a werewolf and a cat in a pumpkin).

Kits, machines to use, and lunch will all be provided. Doors open at 9:30 and the class is from 10 am to 5 pm each day.

We Whisk You a Merry Christmas

We are having so much fun with our Kimberbell classes, and this month we’re offering a one day class, We Whisk You a Merry Christmas, on Sunday, October 13 at our Colorado Springs store.

Join us for a Sunday full of sewing fun. Make an apron as well as two adorable tea towels. Use these as festive additions to your kitchen, or give them as as great gifts during the holiday season.

Purchase your Kimberbell book with the designs in advance at a Rocky Mountain Sewing and Vacuum store. Then, bring your book and your embroidery machine with at least a 6 x 10 hoop. Complete project kits and an apron will be provided.

We’re not providing lunch, so bring your own, or plan to go out at the lunch break. Since this is a baking-themed day, we will also have a cookie exchange the day of the class. So, bring a sweet treat as well as the recipe to share if you like!

The cost for the class is $60, and we’ll sew from 10:30 am until 5:00 pm.
