Hi Society Members (and those intereseted)! This Saturday will be our last meeting for the current year. Can you believe it’s been a whole year! We will be talking more soon about the new year and I’m hoping lots of you will join us again. Or if you’re interested in joining for the first time, we’d love to have you!
We hope that everyone is enjoying this lovely weather, long weekend, and the final days of summer! We will be closed tomorrow, Monday, September 2nd in celebration. — READ MORE —
Join us Sunday, August 25th at 2:30 for a little party and some really fun demos and activities with Diane Gilleland and Christina Lane. Find out more details over on their blogs! We are hanging the quilts from the book this week and they are going to create quite a backdrop for the party! There will be lemonade and treats and hopefully YOU! — READ MORE —
Our summer has been so much fun! With kids classes most weeks, a trip to San Francisco for BERNINA University, and people coming by from near and far to see the expansion we have been busy! We have started showing quilts in our big downstairs classroom and are introducing new teachers for fall along with new classes and fabric collections coming in weekly!
It’s almost the first Saturday of August! I’d love for you to join me for our Sewing Society meeting on August 3rd, where this month our project will be these versatile and handy vinyl pouches!
Have you stopped by lately? If not, you’ll notice something a huge change in our workshop! The Portland Modern Quilt Guild’s special exhibit from the Sisters Outdoor Show is visiting us here at Modern Domestic. It’s such a treat to be in the presence of so many amazing quilts! — READ MORE —
While I love scrappy, intricately pieced quilts and enjoy combining prints, I have to be honest with myself. I am a large scale quilter. I need the pieces to be big–the bigger the better. That is how I actually manage to get quilts done. — READ MORE —
Whenever I get a chance to use embroidery stitches on my BERNINA machine, I jump at the chance! July’s foot of the month is the Embroidery Foot with a Clear Sole.
We are over the moon in love with all of the lovely Robert Kaufman Denim that has arrived! We’ve bundled them up in fat quarter packs, and have precuts in 1/2 yard, too. I’m currently dreaming up lots of projects…
