    3 Bags in 3 Days - The Teagan Clutch Trio, Tulip Crossbody Zipster & Valentina Versatile Tote Class fee includes patterns for:

    Teagan Clutch: This NOVICE clutch pattern is a quick and easy sew. Teagan comes in three different sizes, has three different pocket options and three different looks on the front. With all of the varied styles, this is truly a “mix and match” pattern. Teagan is a go-to for those quick-to-make gifts, and yet no two need ever look alike. Dress her up or dress her down, she’ll never disappoint!

    Tulip Crossbody Zipster: This sewing pattern was born out of our wildly popular Tulip Zipper Case pattern. The Zipster has a similiar shape and same zipper install, but with several added features, such as a “pocket in a pocket”, a magnetic snap closure and an adjustable strap. Tulip is the perfect grab and go bag for the day. It’s roomy interior is also large enough for your electronic reader or small tablet.

    Valentina Tote: This confident beginner sewing pattern is an easy sew with professional results. Valentina includes a large front pocket with magnetic snap; 3-compartment slip pocket with box pleat; recessed zipper closure; and optional detachable adjustable strap. The added details result in a polished look.

    November 7, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
    The Modern Sewist, 6585 Gateway Ave, Sarasota, FL 34231, USA

    Please join us for this exciting Block of the Month Club. We will be using the Urbanolgie pattern by Sew Kind of Wonderful, which features 12 unique and modern pieced quilt blocks. It is a contemporary themed sampler quilt with a fresh modern vibe, or each block can create a fantastic quilt of its own! The pattern provides for three different layouts to appeal to a variety of styles. We will be using a layout that finishes at 56″x64″ with blocks including: birds, trees, skinny arrows, big arrows, pears, flutterby, houses, feathers, butterfly, pineapples, poppies and antlers.

    The Club will include all fabric required to complete your quilt top, sashing and binding; the beautiful full-colored pattern book and the QCR Mini Ruler© used in making the blocks. The fabric kits will include designs from Tula Pink, Cotton+Steel, Alison Glass and more. The kits may vary based on availability. You’ll just need to add your favorite batting and backing!
