Meetings are on the 3rd Saturday of every month from 09:30 until 3:30 (or until the last person leaves!). Bring your machine and project supplies and join us in the back classroom of Sew Worth It located at 5507 Palmer Crossing Circle (Corner of Clark & Honore) in Sarasota.


Bring a bag lunch and beverage to all meetings!

2018 Charity Project is: Oak Park School for disabled children (bibs and lap quilts), Sarasota Memorial Hospital NICU & Cancer Unit and Care Bears for Children

Ladies, the attachment is our project for April 21.  I am looking forward to making this for my grandsons!  Please have your materials ready to go for the project and your usual machine and sewing supplies. As always you may opt to bring and sew on your own project and enjoy each other’s company. Bring your Sew and Tell projects too! They are always fun and inspirational!  See you at Spring Fling and/or on Saturday at Sew Worth It!

Happy Sewing, Lou

Subject: Men's Toiletry Bag pattern & Instructions


Attached is the instructions with pattern for the men’s toiletry bag.  I have made several and will say that it is easier using home decor fabric than quilted fabric.  If you want to laminate fabric with Vinyl Fuse, you will need to pay careful attention and follow the instructions exactly (speaking from 1st had experience).
