Of course, we are all celebrating September as National Sewing Month. In fact, you may already be overwhelmed with tons of wonderful sewing and quilting information from every corner of the Hand Made Universe. However, please take special note of some key events we have going on right here in Staunton.
- On Friday, September 11th, and Saturday, September 12th Rachel’s Quilt Patch will be hosting a baked goods fundraiser for LUNGevity, an organization dedicated to improving the lives of persons diagnosed with Lung Cancer. In addition, RQP will donate 10% of all sales on these days to LUNGevity. To learn more and/or to participate in other related events please visit Rachel’s website and www.lungevity.org. If you are unable to stop by RQP this weekend, please think of making a direct donation to this organization online.
- The Queen City Sewing Company, owned and operated by Staunton’s own, Sherrie Hanna, has moved to a new and beautiful studio location at 235 Kalorama Street. QCSC offers fun and creative sewing classes for children, teens and adults. You can checkout the new location by visiting www.facebook.com/queencitysewingcompany. For further information and to see their 2014-2015 schedule contact email@example.com or call 540-290-0188.
- Who knew coming together as the Modern Quilting Group Staunton earlier this year would transform into Sew Creative Staunton!! Well that’s what happened at our meeting this September over iced tea and brownies. It seems our merry little band of quilters also likes to sew other fun stuff, and we do not want to be limited by labels or in the amount of fun we have! Please think about joining us if you sew and quilt, and want to have a great time sharing what you make. Check out the Events page on this blog for additional information.
Thank you in advance for your support of our local artists and creative businesses. They are a cornerstone in sustaining the quality of life in our community.
All the best,
