Happy Spring to all of you.  It is Spring officially according to the calendar,  according to the gardeners plantinng and preparing their garden plots, according to friends who noticed their first crocus, according to the students enjoying their spring break, and according to Joyce who “springized” the front window of the Sewing Boutique.

     We, at the Sewing booutique, can plan classes and fully expect to have them without threat of a blizzard.  What a great feeling!  Our snowbirds will be returning home and it will be good to see them again.  Ah Spring!

     We have several new classes lined up for our sewing  enthusiasts.  I will be having a very basic Beginning Quilt class for wannabe quilters.  I will be assuming you know NOTHING about quilting and we go from there.

     I am also having an Intermediate level  quilt class, using batiks, for those who have taken at least one of my previous quilt classes.

     I am excited about doing a Jenny Haskins handbag that utilizes embroidery and other embellishments.  Those doing my present Jenny Haskins quilt already have the designs used for this project.

     Be sure to look under CLASSES to see what Barb, LaDonna, Janet and Joyce are offering.

     Joyce and I will be attending the Viking Convention in Reno, Nevada this May and we are looking forward to learning more new ideas and techniques to share with you.  We are never too old to learn and to share our talents.  Keep hugging that sewing machine.
