What's New at Friends Around the Block


Can you believe we have hit the dog days of July.  Where has the year gone?  

Vacations have begun and camping trips are being taken.  Before you know it school will be back in session.  Are we ready for all this to happen??

I'm not, feel like I can't stay caught up.  For those of you that have been waiting for classes we are ready to get them underway.

Unfortunately we have had to postpone some until a later date.  On the bright side, we have been able to add some much requested classes to the calendar that will be ongoing. 

One will be Block of the Month Applique class taught by Patt Thompson.  This class will be held the third Monday of every month.  To accommodate  our working customers or customers who can not make it on the Monday we will have a class on the Saturday following the Monday Class.

Another class that has been requested is the Beginning Sewing Class. This is a class that will be once a month on the third Thursday.  The class will teach about how to use your sewing machine, how to clean your machine, what types of thread you should use, and many tips on sewing.  This is NOT a quilting class, but a sewing class.  We will start with basic knowledge of sewing and grow with each class.  

If you have been sewing for many years and still do not have a good working knowledge of your machine and just want to refresh yourself in the basics, think about coming out and learning in our nice class room.

You do not have to commit to a number of classes, just come out and learn some new tips and tricks.  Classes will be from 9-12.  Cost $25.00 per class.

We will continue to have new quilt classes and they will change monthly, but our Sew Kind of Wonderful class will continue.

Please check the "Calendar" and tab through the months to see "what and when" 

Hope to see you here at Friends Around the Block
