  See post on main page: New Classes for Early 2017


Autumn 2016, we offer two classes not offered elsewhere in the province.

  1. Clothesline Bowls with Brenda Boudreau (Oct 1, 2016)
  2. Christmas Table Runners with Brenda Boudreau (November 5, 2016)


  • sewing machine
  • open toe applique foot (a regular zigzag foot will also work)
  • FULL spool (regular size) of white thread
  • FULL bobbin of white thread
  • pkg. of Universal 80/12 needles
  • small scissors
  • an awl or stiletto if you have one


  • Sewing machine and general sewing supplies.
  • Thread to match fabric
  • a good quality machine needle (Brenda uses a Schmetz Universal size 80/12) this will make it easier to sew through the cotton and the batting used for the placemats
  • 1/4”foot  ( optional, bring if you have one)
  • point turner
  • ruler and marking pen or chalk
  • quilt batting will be used for the placemats but not the runner. (Brenda uses a low loft quilt batting like Warm and Natural)
  • 2 tassels OR 4 decorative buttons for the table runner
  • Bring at least 2 meters of cotton fabric, 1 meter to cut  the centre strip of fabric  and 1 meter to cut the complimentary border. Note, this will make a runner approximately 38” long and at least 3 placemats. If you want your runner to be longer please bring 4 meters ( 2 each of complimentary colours)  Measure your table and add 12 inches to get the correct length of your runner and bring this measurement to the class so we can cut out the correct length.
  • Pattern for the placemats will be provided by Brenda

  1. I eagerly look forward to taking a pattern alterations course. So, here’s hoping there will be several long ones in the near future!

    1. I’ve forwarded your message and email to Josee in case she doesn’t get this in time. I gave her the option of replying directly to you and/or posting here for others also to see.

  2. From Josee…

    Hi Beverly,

    The only thing you need to bring is a small pair of scissors, sewing pins, and something to take notes with. I’m providing everything else. And yes, we start at 9:00.

  3. Vickie: Great job in pulling together so many teachers & interesting classes! Looking forward to that wonderful roster!
