The Yellowstone County Extension Service helps to organize a 3 day event for Sewing and Crafty people who love to see and learn new things.
Quilting, Serging, Machine and Hand Embroidery, Jewelry Making and garment construction; all under one roof!
You get to hang out with like minded people! You get to try skills you already have and learn a few new ones!
The cost is so affordable, I don't know how they do this, except for the great support of sponsors and teachers!
You can click this link to take you to our Yellowstone County Website onto the Extension Service page for the full brochure and some pictures of the finished products from some of the classes. You'll need some basic sewing supplies, and some classes feature projects that you can do right in the class, but you need to purchase the kits in order to have the right stuff.
Have you thought about sewing up a few children's clothes lately? I know we have rekindled a huge interest in sewing for children just because the things you can make are so darn cute and special!
Here's a couple of pictures of some fun skirts one of the teachers, Nancy Sasse, will have during class #54 on Saturday October 1 in the Dress Form Room of the Shrine Auditorium on Broadwater Avenue.
Lots of fun fabrics in this skirt, many more to choose from, and surprisingly easy to make!
You can find the fabrics and the pattern at Nancy's website, some fabrics will be available for purchase right at the Rocky Mountain Sewing and Craft Festival in the vendor's section!
