And don’t forget about the weekly download patterns from known wool pattern designers who have created a new Summer Sampler.  Sign in to Farmhouse Threads and download the first in the series.  We’ll be making these blocks at the shop so bring your pattern….need some new wool….Thimbles has it along with Valdani, Cosmo and Sulky Blendable threads to make your embroidery work shine.  Wednesday’s continue to be open sewing days so bring your weekly project in and get it done.  It’s fun to see everyone’s project as they are all so very different.  Add your own special touches.  It’s been a fun program as we’ve done their Fall and Christmas projects.  When you complete their latest summer project, summer will be here.  Here are some samples of completed projects.  Everyone added their own special blend to each:IMG_0827                          IMG_0864                     IMG_0665
