Sewtopia Sewing Club – See What You Have Been Missing!

We Carry
by Sara Snuggerud in Archives

On the second Tuesday of every month Heirloom Creations in Sioux Falls, SD, offers Sewtopia Sewing Club where customers are enriched with special sewing topics, creative quilting techniques, sensational serger ideas and beautiful embroidery embellishments.

If you are not already attending see a sample what you are missing at Sewtopia Sewing Club.

Heirloom Creations’ Sewtopia Sewing Club was created as a special day that owners of all brands of sewing machines, embroidery machines and sergers can come and experience new techniques and new products and receive special discounts like 20% off all notions on Sewtopia club day. Being a non-branded group allows all sewing enthusiasts a place to learn, share and be inspired. Started in 2002, I, Sara Snuggerud, have been the main speaker with a great host of guest speakers and contributing trunk shows.

At last month’s “Holiday Show” (September 2008), I demonstrated numerous techniques and a variety of holiday gift ideas. We highlighted a new holiday gift and cookbook “Christmas 10th Anniversary” by Gooseberry Patch. Cleo and I even made four of the easy desserts from this book for members to sample. Boy, were they surprised when they tried the Microwave Toffee!

We showed off a quilt-as-you-go technique from a creative pattern line named “Fun & Done”.

Since it was a holiday show, I wore a neat apron named the “Four Corners Apron” by Vanilla House Designs.

We also demonstrated a new 4D Family Portrait family tree software with embroider-able family pictures with simple click of a button. I used the software to create a framed image of Mount Rushmore to hang in my new rustic style guest bedroom.

For the embroidery segment, we debuted the three special OESD Christmas embroidery  collections that will be arriving each month from now until December. This special holiday promotion offers these beautiful embroidery collections FREE with a $60 purchase of embroidery supplies. Embroiderers who collect all three collections can turn in their vouchers for a fourth embroidered greeting card collection with matching magnetic book marks.

Coming up on Tuesday, October 14, 2008 we will be welcoming guest speaker Cheryl Hilbrands. She is a garment pattern designer and incorporates many unique sewing techniques into all her wearable art. Come see a trunk show of cool new ideas as well as some of her favorite quick easy projects. She will also highlight felting, chenille, appliqué and quilting techniques. Sewtopia Sewing Club is offered three times: 10am, 2pm or 6:30pm.
Guest Fee: $10
