2015: The Year of the Ruler!

Happy New Year! 
It's a new year, with new beginnings (projects just for YOU!) and resolutions (learn a new skill).  Come by to pick up your fabric fortune for 2015 which includes special savings during the new year!

The holidays are officially over, the family and guests are gone, now it's time to SEW!  Join us for a special Sit and Sew, on Friday, January 2nd for all or part of the day.  Bring your sewing machine and a sewing project and SEWcialize.

Sewlovelee has christened 2015: the Year of the Ruler
Each month will feature a different ruler.  As you work on your new year's resolution to declutter, you may be asking yourself, "Do I really need another thing in my sewing room?  Why all these rulers?" My answer is this: Why would a carpenter need a drill when a screwdriver can do the job? The screwdriver can do the job, but the drill allows for faster completion of a project.  The same goes for the specialty rulers.  They allow for a faster, more efficient way to complete projects. In sum, the rulers help you achieve a finished product faster.

For January, the ruler of the month is the Creative Grids 90 degree Double Strip Ruler.
This ruler is specifically designed to use 2.5" inch strips to create a variety of interesting designs.  Skip the Borders by Julie Herman and Think Fast by the Swirly Girls are two books with patterns using this ruler. Come to the Demo Day on Saturday, January 3rd at 11 am for more ideas.
