Let's Get Organized 4th Quarter (October-December 2017)



Join Aunt Mag & Linda Kay for Let's Get Organized!  This session will be on the 4th Saturday of each month, October - December.  Are you ready for some awesome projects?   Here is what we'll be making (Click the link to download the project material requirements):

All Aboard Train CaseOctober - All Aboard Train Case

This pattern includes 3 sizes.  We recommend that you make the medium or large as they will be simpler to construct in class.  Be sure to download the class requirements.  Your zippers and other special items like mesh or fold-over elastic should be ordered in advance.  

Take beauty on the go and look stylish while doing so!

Whether you’re globetrotting or touring closer to home, you’ll love these stylish cases for carrying cosmetics, jewelry, first aid supplies, and more.

You’ll learn how to sew a zipper on a curved edge — another new zipper installation style.

Discover how to finish the edges and stitch the binding to the bag to refine the shape of the train case. Though this is a bit more difficult, you've had lots of practice by now, so feel confident that you can accomplish this step with ease!

Practice really does make perfect!

 

November - Catch All Caddy


A crowd favorite since its release, this over-sized, sturdy caddy has lots of easy-to-access slip pockets and dividers to hold and organize all your supplies.

You’ll be thrilled to learn how to make bellowed inner dividers. Their ingenious design allows the interior fabric dividers to be fully expandable yet to also be able to fall flat against the caddy when not in use.

This project also introduces a new style of handles which are padded with Soft and Stable and attached to the caddy using rectangle rings.

You will test your binding skills as you sew the binding on the bulky bottoms and curved edges and make the "grab" handles on the end. But you're an expert, so it's no problem!

Congrats on mastering these skills!

A Place for EverythingDecember - A Place for Everything

For the final project in this year-long project series, we're going to tackle the mother-of-all-bags!

You’ll love this spacious organizer with lots of zippered pockets to hold everything you need— sewing machine feet and accessories, tools, and more.

You’ll take all skills you learned as you worked on the other projects and perfect them with this bag.

You'll also learn some new skills:

Expand on the zipper-making skills you learned in Project 1 as you learn to make zippers of any length using Zippers by the Yard.

Discover how to make expandable vinyl pockets which will hold larger items. You'll love the handy folding template included in the pattern.

Mesh pockets and bindings will be easy-peasy since you’ve mastered them in so many projects up to this point.

Learn the secrets to attaching hook-and-loop fastener to pocket pages.

As we wrap up our year ... Let's Celebrate!!

The December class will be a celebration of sorts as it will be the last class in our 12 month series.  We do plan to offer Let's Get Organized in 2018 with 12 fresh new projects ... from great gifts, to super useful items for your home, sewing and quilting needs.    

Let's plan to SHOW OFF!!  Bring as many of your completed items from 2017 as possible - we'll pile up our "booty" and take a group pic!  We'll also end the year with a party.  Bring finger food or a sweet treat to share for lunch that day.
