Hoppin Bobbin E News



I have come to the determination that I am a little tired of being cold.  Ha ha!  I also have determined that the only good thing about cold weather and snow is that it gives me a good excuse to sew all day, inside, in the warmth!  Hope you guys are taking advantage of your snow days and that you are enjoying some premium time in your sewing rooms!!
Check out our new classes, some new teaches and great techniques!  Lots of fun in store for you!

Kelly, Elisabeth, Barb and of course Tootsie too!

February Classes and Clubs
Crown Jewels

This difficult looking pattern is a cinch using the Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star tool and construction process. The units are strip pieced and assembled with no “Y” seams. Pieced units are trimmed for high precision so matching seams and keeping points becomes a snap! A fast and easy project with the right tool!

All Scrapped Out
When your quilts give you mountains of scraps its time to give them a purpose. This project will give you an opportunity to improve your rotary cutting, piecing and confidence to create a pleasing finished top. Practice, practice and more practice will make a happier quilter. SCRAPS are the “spice” of a quilters life. Join the scrappers and trade some of those “pieces” just waiting to grow up to something you that will surprise you!!

Accurate cutting and pressing techniques
A square quilt starts at the beginning and that is at the cutting table.  Using your rulers correctly, and having rulers that you can read, is of the utmost importance.  Let us show you during this demo the use of several different types of rulers to get better accuracy.  We will also cover some basic pressing techniques, for logical reasons in pressing, that the pattern you are using may not tell you.
