People Say I Have the Perfect Job

We Carry
by Sara Snuggerud in Sewing Tips

People say I have the perfect job. I agree. I do.

One reason I think I have the perfect job is because any time I want to sew something, I just turn it into a class or a lecture! 

Here is my SECRET….

Dresden Neighborhood Quilt pattern I have always wanted to make! Click the picture for the downloadable pattern.

For each Sewtopia Sewing Club I come up with a sewing project or technique I want to learn or complete. By offering it as a class, it helps me get my samples completed in time for the Sewtopia Sewing Club lecture. And second, I usually get to make a couple different versions or color ways as stage samples to show a variety of techniques.

Come see what I learned this month at the monthly “Sewotpia Sewing Club” lecture.

Here is a sneak peek of what I am making for the upcoming Sewtopia Sewing Club. It is the start of the awesome Dresden Neighborhood Quilt I have had on my bucket list since the day I downloaded the pattern. This is why I love my job! This is the month I have set aside to get this project completed. It’s like a little rainbow of joy to look forward to knowing that this is the month I get to work on this project. And with a deadline looming I must get it done. That’s my secret!

What is the AccuQuilt die you see in the picture? Thank you for asking. I had a AccuQuilt make me a custom die to cut the pieces for this quilt block. 

If you would like to use my personal die to cut your own Dresden Neighborhood Quilt pieces, sign up for one of Heirloom Creations Semi-Private classes. Click here to download this pattern before coming to class. 

ATTENTION: Sewtopia Club Members

At the Tuesday, July 10, 2018 lecture, all attendees will have a one-time FREE access to this die with proof of pattern purchase. Bring ten 6″ x 10″ fabric layered and ready to cut using our AccuQuilt cutter and this die. If you can not attend the July Sewtopia Sewing Club, please sign up for one of our many scheduled Semi-Private classes. Yes, we are bribing you to attend the July Sewtopia Sewing Club. 🙂

All this to say, that YES, I do have the perfect job! See you at Sewtopia!
