A Note from The Sewing Basket ~ Procrastinators Unite!



Now open M-F 9-5
Wednesdays until 7:00
Saturdays 9-4
We thought about a Christmas in July event and decided we really don't want to think about snow in the summer.  But, we wanted to come up with an idea to make your holidays less hectic!

Procrastination is one of the things that catches up with us as the holidays approach.  So, we are here to help.  Starting Wednesday, July 26th we will be starting a new Sit and Sew called "Procrastinators Unite".  Come and sew with a like minded group and help inspire one another.  It will be an open sew from 12 -5.  These Wednesdays are also the same day as our new "Sew Crafty" project classes.  Start your gift making early and your holidays will be less busy! 

Here is a partial list of project ideas that make great Christmas gifts (or wedding, or shower, or birthday or . . . Start thinking about what gifts you want to make.
