CLASS SCHEDULE



2018

Weekly “Sit and Sew”

Sit & Sew will be every Monday from 10:00-3:30.  Leave the housework at home, bring out those projects that need finishing and come on over for some "sewing camaraderie".   There will always be someone to help you if you get to one of those spots that you just can't figure out. I know I can accomplish more if I am sewing away from home without the ringing phone and the laundry that always needs to be done.
Mondays from 10 - 3:30
 
Did you know Studio Stitch rents machines?

If you don't have a sewing machine, don't want to haul your machine to class, are thinking about purchasing a new machine, want to embroider something, or are just learning to sew, stop by and talk to us about our "in store" machine rental program.

 Looking for a quilt guild in the area?
Come and check out the Greensboro Modern Quilt Guild. This guild is newly formed, and meets at Studio Stitch on the third Monday of the month. Their Facebook page is www.facebook.com/greensboromqg/. The Gate City Quilt Guild meets the first Thursday of the month at New Garden Friends Meeting. See their website for more information: www.gatecityquiltguild.org. The Piedmont Quilt Guild meets the second Thursday of the month at Starmount Presbyterian Church and their website is www.piedmontquilts.org.  Heart of the Triad Quilt Guild meets the first Monday of the month at Seventh-Day Adventist Church in Kernersville and their website is www.hottqg.org
