Fun things to do & places to eat while you're in Kennesaw!


Don't forget that we have a great variety of masks in stock for only $5.00. Fabrics change often so why not do like I've done and have a lot of different ones to match your outfits.

 
We are still offering curbside but if you want to come in, please know the shop is disinfected as everyone leaves and throughout the day for the safety of our staff and our customers.
 
To stay in compliance with Governor Kemp's Guidelines we are taking the following precautions:
 
  • You are required to wear masks while in our shop. If you do not have a mask, we are selling them for only $5.00.
  • You are required to be at least 6 feet apart from anyone in the shop at all times. We have also put up plastic over cutting table and check out station for your safety. You can put your fabric on the counter, step back and we will cut it for you. This has worked well for everyone.
  • We disinfect throughout the day to keep everyone as safe as possible.
  • We are still offering curb-side delivery for your convenience if you are not comfortable coming into the shop. You may call us at 678-355-6776 and let us know what you need, provide us with your credit card information and we will deliver your purchase to the curb by your car.
  • If you want to come into the shop, know we are constantly disinfecting everything to the best of our ability. For everyone's safety and well being, we are monitoring our own health before coming to work and would appreciate everyone doing the same before coming into the shop.

Thanks for your understanding and patience in these trying times. This too shall pass and things will get back to normal. Be sure to help your friends and neighbors.

Thanks ,Prairie Women's Sewing Circle New Dates
Dates: Dec. 22, Jan. 26 and Feb. 23
Cost: $37.50
Instructor: Muriel Pfaff
A unique, monthly club that will take you on a journey back in time as we explore life along the Oregon Trail. Gather together as the Prairie Women did, and hear anecdotal stories about their quilt-making, and what daily life was like for those who traveled by wagon trail. Each month we will be working on quilt projects from The Prairie Women Sewing Circle pattern set designed by Pam Buda. At each monthly gathering, you will receive a new quilt project pattern along with tips, techniques, and shortcuts for making the quilts. You will also experience pioneer life in a fun way with stories, food samples, and an old-fashioned quilting bee-type atmosphere. Sign up today as we journey through the threads of time!

For those of you who love to read, this is the perfect quilt class! Read a fun book, discuss women’s issues (aka a quilter’s therapy session), and make a quilt. This club has it all! We will be reading a charming series of books by Jennifer Chiaverini (only one book each 4-month session) about friendships and maybe some new things about quilting. In November, we begin the book “The Runaway Quilt”. I know you’ll enjoy all the new adventures of your favorite characters, as well as meeting some new characters and also learning about the Underground Railroad in this book. In addition to a book discussion, we’ll be making Log Cabin Quilts. Sign up today so you won’t miss any of the fun as we start this new book in a fun series!  
PhD (Projects Half Done) Group

Instructor: Muriel Pfaff
Feeling overwhelmed by the fabric and UFOs you have in your stash? Want to see them disappear? This is the class for you! Start with a list of PhDs (Projects Half Done), come to class, and let Muriel help you with the problem areas. Whether it’s design help, brushing up on skills, using specialty rulers, or just getting motivated to finish something, this is the class for you. Each month will also include lots of tips, shortcuts, and inspiration. Finish all your projects by the end of next year to earn your PhD degree in quilting! This class starts in November and is designed to continue for a year (pay every 4 months), but drop-ins are welcome, as space allows (pay by the month).
Binding 101 
Date: Wednesday, December 2 (10 - 1)
Cost: $35
Instructor: Muriel Pfaff
Learn the technique of bias double-fold binding with crisp corners and machine or hand finishes, all while making a cute "Three Pocket Purse". Class will also include a discussion of other binding techniques such as mock bindings and "pillow turn" bindings. Rather than working on a quilt, students will work on attaching bias binding to an 18" square of pre-quilted fabric. This will ensure that everyone completes turning four corners and finishes off the ends. (Kit fabric may vary from photo below.)

Charm School: Butterfly Quilt

Cost: $30
Instructor: Muriel Pfaff
You’ll be charmed, I’m sure, with all the things you can do with 5” charm packs! Each month focuses on a variety of new projects. Fun and easy! Scrappy Charm School projects are great stash busters. Use a wide variety of fabric scraps – any color or fabric style will work - to create your own wonderful scrap-style quilt. There’s no curved piecing, but you’ll love all the circles that appear when the quilt is finished. And no charm school would be complete without a few Southern-style etiquette lessons thrown in.  Old-fashioned ‘charming’ fun!

After class, students will design a unique border for their own quilt. Size, style and design of each quilt will be different. Take your quilting to a new level with this unique class!
