do not hold a marriage together. It is threads, hundreds of tiny threads which
sew people together through the years.

Greetings!



I
love the changing seasons. Fall is in the air...kids are back in school and
life returns to a bit of a normal routine. Now is the time to pull the sewing
machine back out and start thinking about holiday outfits and gifts. Just to
get you started, I have a section below on making a girls pilgrim outfit. The
bonnet, collar and apron are very, very easy and quick to make...and so fun
for the girls!



Take
a look at our new patterns - we have some fun things that would make into
great Christmas gifts. The activity book will supply hours of fun for your
budding seamstress, or you could make up some of the different aprons with
appropriate accessories for your toddlers. The camping book would be a hit
with the younger boys!



Every
year I try to make a new set of banners for church. I just completed this
communion banner set which goes up once a month when our church body
celebrates communion. This set is one of the simpler banners patterns to make,
using Heat'n'bond to adhere everything to the background.



Have
a great, sew-fun fall! ~JoAnn


















Are
you wanting to sew something for that little boy in your life but are tired of
clothes? Let's go camping is a pattern for a cloth book that might keep your
boy still long enough to realize that he really wants to go camping! The book
you make will teach him to zip, tie, count, button, buckle, snap, learn his
colors, and more. You'll have as much fun making it as he has playing with
it."

A
set of lovely communion banners that together reflect upon the last supper
referred to in Luke 22. Writing reads: "Do This In Remembrance Of Me." Here
they are made up in a majestic purple and gold. These banners are assembled
using the Heat'n'Bond technique and measure 30" X 48".
