Hand Work - Sew Along

Monthly - 3rd Thursdays of the Month  

Ladies and gents are you ready for some good conversation, a bit of coffee and tea drinking and a lot of EPP or any other hand sewing project!  Once a month we will have a sew along for hand sewing, bring your projects and we can ooh and aww over them, get new ideas and turn those projects into finished ones.   Donations will be accepted for host and classroom use.  
Bring your project to work on or purchase a kit at Busy Bee.

Hand Work Sew Along 

During the quarantine of the last years, when I couldn’t make it to the sewing 
room or wanted to spend time with my family but needed my hands to be busy, I 
discovered English Paper Piecing (EPP).    This has been a revelation to me as I hate 
any form of hand sewing, I never hand sew binding unless I have to, my hand 
embroidery looks like a kindergartener’s drawing and I have big hands!   After my 
first project I was hooked and found a new love for hand sewing and now I am 
working on a whole quilt project.  I love having a project to work on when I can’t 
be in my sewing room or watching the Kansas City Chiefs with my husband. 

When I told the ladies at the Bee, they extended my enthusiasm for this new craft 
by suggesting this would be a perfect opportunity for the newly opened Design 
Center!  So, ladies and gents are you ready for some good conversation, a bit of 
coffee and tea drinking and a lot of EPP or any other hand sewing project!  Once a 
month we will have a sew along for hand sewing, bring your projects and we can 
ooh and aww over them, get new ideas and turn those projects into finished ones.  

Donations will be accepted for host and classroom use. 

Instructor: Christy Riblett
Instructor Bio: My passion for sewing and quilting started after an 8th grade Home Ec class. I loved it so much that I spent hours in the local fabric store planning my next project which led the owner to offering me a summer job. Throughout the years I have honed my skills be taking classes from various teachers around the area. I myself have taught preschool and kindergarten for 15 years and several levels of bible classes for 30 years. I love meeting a young person that just got their first sewing machine and leading them through this wonderful craft. Recently I purchased a midarm and quilting frame and my learning curve took another steep climb! My day isn't complete if I haven't made it to my sewing room. Sewing has given me much joy and peace walking through the different paths of my life.
