New Monthly Clubs at Just Sew

We're excited to introduce three new monthly clubs:

First is our Kimberbell Bench Pillow of the Month Club:

Each month, we will have kits available for a new pillow cover.  You will make the pillow form with the first month's pillow cover.  You can choose to sign up for all twelve, or you can pick and choose which ones you'd like to make.

The cost to sign up is $10.00, which includes the muslin to make your pillow form.  You will then determine which pillow covers you'd like to sign up to make.  We have a sheet that shows pictures of each pillow for your reference as you are signing up.  Your kits will be available starting the first of each month.  Pick them up as early in the month as possible.  Each kit will be priced based on the amount of fabric used in the kit and will include the pattern.  Kits are estimated to range from $25-$40 including pattern.

Our First Saturday and Monday of the Month Block of the Month Club will be a Mystery Quilt.  

Beginning March 2nd, we will be working on a Mystery Quilt.  Each month we will make one or two blocks from the book "501 Rotary Cut Quilt Blocks":

We will make a total of twelve 9" pieced blocks and six 6" pieced blocks over the course of a year.  Which blocks we make, the block setting, and borders will be a mystery that will be unveiled the last month of the series.

The signup fee for this club is $29.99, which buys your book.  When you come to pick up your first block on March 2nd or 7th, you have two options:  You can pay for the balance of the program, which is $70, or you can opt to make twelve monthly payments of $6 each.  We will hold tutorials to give you tips on block assembly for each month's block(s) at 10:00, 11:30, and 1:00 on both pickup days.

To pique your interest and satisfy a little of your curiosity, here is the first month's block:

We will be using these colors for the quilt, as well as some yellows and pinks.

Our third club is our "Bring Me Flowers" block of the month, featuring the patterns found in Jen Kingwell's book, "Bring Me Flowers."

This block of the month program will run the same as our Mystery Quilt Block of the month, except you will pick up your blocks and have a tutorial on the 2nd Saturday and Monday of each month, and the pricing will be as follows:

Signup Fee:  $28, includes book
Participation Fee, due when you pick up your first blocks on March 9 or 13:  $90, or $8 monthly

Our first blocks look like those shown below, and we WILL be making the borders with the white solid and the black and white polka dot as shown in the picture above.  We will make 2-3 blocks each month, using a variety of methods.

All three of these options will be a lot of fun!  Bring a friend or two along with you as you sign up for one, two, or all of these programs!
