Greetings from your friends at Sew Fabulous

Hello From Sew Fabulous,

Wow, today got away from me and I'm getting this newsletter out pretty late. I hope you're all doing well, staying safe and being healthy.

REMINDER: We will be closing early on Saturday, December 17. Hours are: 9:30-2:00.

Do you know someone who is interested in learning how to sew? We have people stop in the store all the time asking for beginning sewing classes. To answer this need, we will have a Beginning Sewing Class with Heidi starting January 28. It is a 3-session class and will be held January 28, 10:00-Noon, February 4, 10:00-Noon, and February 11, 10:00-2:00. Included with the class is the book, "Professor Pincushion's Guide to Beginning Sewing". Cost: $85 for the class. Sign up @

It's been a while since I sent you a project from our friends at Janome. I thought you might like this cute little "Three Fat Quarter Quilted Journal". It is a quilt-as-you-go project and could be a quick project to make for a gift. I love giving handmade gifts, don't you?

And, as long as I'm at it, I found instructions for this cute, reversible holiday apron at We All Sew. If you like to bake during the Holidays, perhaps you could make this apron and show your festive spirit while you make all those goodies your family loves.

I have a CHALLENGE for you - I know some of you just love the idea of a good challenge. In March I'm expecting a shipment of the fabrics being used in the 2022/2023 Hoffman Challenge - 100 years of Hoffman. You've got a few months to develop your design; I'm sure every one of them will be beautiful. See all the details including categories and rules at
BERNINA continues to have 25% off all accessories, luggage and hoops. There are also some great deals on Bernette 70 and 79 machines that include free software (Software value more than $1000). Also, it's not too late to get the BERNINA Q16 under your Christmas Tree (figuratively speaking, really! It's too big to fit under the tree.) Stop in and talk with Heidi to get the best deal on this great machine and table.
