Greetings from Camp Sew & Sew: Spring is here and I have begun to feel very restless in a GOOD way! How about YOU? It's time to CREATE, to bring forth your new found creative energy and get busy, sewing, playing and being in community with other like-minded, enthusiastic & aspiring sewists!

     A new session of Camp Sew & Sew has begun and we are having a blast! We would love to have you join us and just see what you can do with fabrics, threads

and some great support from other campers! Some of the fun projects NEW sewers are doing:
• Beautiful pillow tops and pillow forms to go inside your new pillow,
• creating a pattern from a favorite piece of clothing, making bags for friends and family members.
• And a “real” quilter is even learning how to stitch “outside the lines” and LOVES it!

    We have a rolling enrollment with ongoing sessions. You will not have to “catch up” because you simply work on what YOU want to work on, getting help in places when
you NEED the help! This is a safe place to create and play for grownups!
Come break a few rules with us!

When: Tuesday mornings from 9:30 to Noon Where: Cotton Weeds Quilt Shop, Rt. One in Freeport (across from Bucks Naked BBQ)

Price: $85.00 for 8 weeks of pure JOY!
