It's time to Celebrate!!

We are pleased to announce, that Simple Stitches is having it's 2nd Birthday!  We can hardly believe how fast the time has flown by!  We have met so many fun people through this whole process!  We couldn't have done it with out each one of you!  We are truly blessed!  It has blossomed into a sewing school that we could have only imagined!  We love working and sharing our knowledge with you! So...THANK YOU!!

So, in celebration of our 2nd Birthday, we have a fun new project!  Who doesn't like to celebrate that special day where we are a year older? ;)  Some of us never age!  The Happy Birthday place mat will teach you several different concepts.  First of all, you will learn how to piece and quilt the place mat, make your own bias tape, and binding.  Such a fun project!

 To go with your Happy Birthday place mat, you for sure need a matching banner!  How fun would this be to hang up for that special someones birthday?  The fun thing about this project, is you can customize it to say anything you want!  Celebrate, Love, Believe...use your imagination, the possibilities are endless!  Sewing this banner is so much fun!  You will master machine applique by using the blanket stitch, learn how to make yo-yo's and sewing on buttons.
Hopefully we have inspired you to try something new at our sewing school!  Keep on sewing!

Simple Stitches Sewing & Knitting School is an on going year round school. Sewing machines are provided for students. No need to have your own machine!
