    Happy Valentines Day! Any holiday that lets you give something handmade from the heart is one we're sure to love. We've got all the fabric and yarn you need to craft the perfect last-minute Valentine for your sweetheart! We love all of our customers so we have a gift for you of 14% off everything in the store today (use code BEMINE14 online)!

    Need a card to give that special someone? Don't miss our new handmade Valentine cards from Tandem Quilting Co. Made with fabric and cardstock by local refugee seamstresses, these cards are the perfect way to say "I love you." We only have a limited number of these cards available, so stop in to get yours!



    The new Kaffe Fassett Collective fabrics won't be here until the end of the month. Until then, you'll be tickled pink to see all the restocked KFC classics that have just arrived. We've just unboxed nearly two dozen bolts including Roman Glass, Ombre, JupiterDream and Brassica, in some of the most popular colorways we've had. Shop early for the best selection!

CLASSES  

 Quilting/Sewing Classes



Sit & Stitch (Fabric)
Fridays, 11 am-1 pm
Drop in any time during the posted hours for some quilt piecing by hand fun with friends! (We recommend bringing a snack so you can pop downstairs for a quick bite to stay energized for a full day of stitching.)

Open Sew
Weekdays (check Calendar for availability), 10 am-4 pm $10
Bring your machine and supplies to our classroom space and work on your sewing and quilting projects.

English Paper-Piecing Club
First Saturday of the month (next date 3/2/19), 9:30 am-1 pm $15
Sometimes it is good to take a break from doing everything fast. English paper piecing is a great way to slow down and enjoy the process of creating. This is the time where you can bring in any project that you are working on or want to begin working on and we can help/encourage/get inspired by each other. This group will meet on the 1st Saturday from 9:30am-1pm. $90 for the year or $15 per month if you would like to pay monthly.

Sewing 101
Sunday, 2/17/19, 12:30-4 pm $70
Whether you've never sewn before or just need a refresher because you haven't sewn in years, our Sewing 101 class will get you stitching in no time! This class covers all the basics including how to thread your sewing machine (including how to wind a bobbin), sewing terminology, essential tools, how to read a pattern and more. You'll leave the class with a small, finished project and an enthusiasm for your new hobby! Taught by Mary Abreu.

Quiltmaking 101
Thursdays, 3/28, 4/11, 4/25 & 5/9, 9:30am-1:30 pm $200
Are you ready to make your first quilt? Our Quiltmaking 101 class (formerly Beginning Quilt Making) will give you all the essential tips, tricks and know-how to make your quilting dreams come true. Our instructors are experienced quilters, eager to share their knowledge with you as you make a lap-size quilt from start to finish. You'll learn a variety of valuable techniques and terms, such as cutting, strip piecing, seam allowance, pin-basting, quilting, binding and more. We break up the class into four, 4-hour sessions, with "homework" you'll do in between sessions. A sewing machine is required for this class. Don't have one? We have two sewing machines you can reserve to use in the shop for class with a $25 deposit that will be returned to you when the classes are done. Taught by Sarah Oliver (weekday sessions). Three student minimum.

Dress No. 2
Saturdays, 3/16 & 3/23/19, 1-5 pm $175
Join Chrissy Weeks to make Dress No. 2 from 100 Acts of Sewing in a two-part class.
Our goal is a flattering and comfortable fit via making a muslin and then constructing the final garment in your choice of fabrics. You will enjoy having this simple but versatile garment as part of your Spring wardrobe. Note: This class is a prerequisite for our Dress No. 2 hacking class later this spring.


Knitting/Crocheting Classes

Please note: We have added a $1 charge for all our Sit & Knit sessions so that we may be able to collect a list of who will be coming ahead of time (the system won't let us take sign-ups for free) and that way we can let you know if something happens to prevent us having a teacher there. Please do register for the specific session you want to come to, to let us know if you will be joining.

Tuesday evening Sit & Stitch (Yarn)
Every Tuesday, 5-8 pm $1
Drop in any time during the posted hours for some yarn fun with friends! Crocheters are welcome, too! This is great for beginners especially, as knitting near more experienced knitters allows for you to get immediate help with questions and mistakes which then helps you learn to recognize mistakes yourself and gives you the practice time to get better with your knitting. Please sign up to let us know you will be at the sit & knit. 

Thursday Sit & Stitch (Yarn)
Thursdays, 10 am-1 pm $1
Drop in any time during the posted hours for some yarn fun with friends! Crocheters are welcome, too! This is great for beginners especially, as knitting near more experienced knitters allows for you to get immediate help with questions and mistakes which then helps you learn to recognize mistakes yourself and gives you the practice time to get better with your knitting. 

Saturday Sit & Stitch (Yarn) 
Every other Saturday, 10 am-1 pm (next date: 2/23/2019) $1
Drop in any time during the posted hours for some yarn fun with friends! Crocheters are welcome, too!

Sweater Knit-along
Sunday, 3/24/19 (more dates to come), 1-4 pm
Join our "Secret Sweater Stitching Society*" on the fourth Sunday of the month to hang out with other sweater knitters! (*It's not really a secret.)

Knitting 101 by reservation
You can learn how to get started knitting during our weekly sit and knit. Just reserve your spot for $40 prior to that day (either in store, online or by phone) and we will make sure there is someone there dedicated to teaching you how for the first hour of the morning sit & knit. Yarn and knitting needles included! We've found it is a great way for folks to learn. They can then sit with the teacher for awhile knitting and get help learning how to fix little mistakes as they arise. We've had great feedback on teaching knitting this way versus a separate class. Reservations must be made at least 48 hours prior to the session. We are also happy to set up a class for you though or private lessons that work better for your schedule. Email us to let us know your wishes. 

COUPONS  
     Our IQF&Y loyalty program earns you points towards a 20% off reward good on all in-stock, regularly price merchandise. Best of all, it's all done electronically -- no more paper cards to keep up with! Still have one of our old paper IQ cards? We are happy to add your existing IQ cards to our system; just bring them in with your name and email address written on them.

     We do occasionally give out coupons during shop hop and other special events like quilt shows. Coupons cannot be used on special orders or sale items, cannot be combined and there are no rain checks.
