Sit and Sew

Come use our space and our tools (and escape your family, renovations or anything else you'd like to leave at home). Come alone or bring a friend. This is a great opportunity to sew-cialize with friends, both new and old! A staff person will be assigned to help you, if needed, but there will not be a specific lesson or class being taught. You must bring your own machine (as always, we can help you carry it in), your project supplies and rotary cutters. As an added bonus, any regularly-priced shopping you do the same day will be discounted by 10%. Please call the store to register or ask any questions you may have. 613-834-3044


This vibrant wall hanging(approximately 16" X 36") is created using light-weight fusible interfacing with or without machine applique. Carrie will walk you through the construction of the piece and offer different finishing techniques for your consideration. A limited number of kits containing the same fabrics, batting and fusible web as the sample as well as the pattern are available We recommend purchasing the kit at the time of registration as we are unable to make any more once they are gone.

Introduction to hand-piecing (Little Houses)

Be part of the slow stitching movement, hand-stitching with a creative purpose, by starting a small composition of three little houses that can be made into a 7" x 17" wall-hanging. This is a 2-part class. Once you have learned the technique, you can easily multiply the number of houses to make an entire community or only make one showcase house that can perhaps serve as a housewarming gift. The pattern and thread are included in the cost of registration. Please note: this class is a pre-requisite for the Circle Game, a 73" x 73" hand-pieced, hand-quilted project that takes place over eight months.
