The kids are back in school!!!  And what better way to celebrate than by
catching up on old projects and starting new ones.  We have some great
new fabrics in stock and more on the way.  

The Albuquerque Mini Maker Faire is coming up!  August 29-30, 2015 at the 
Albuquerque Balloon Museum.  Saturday the 29th from 10am to 6pm and Sunday
the 30th from 11am to 5pm.  

A Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth.  A family-friendly 
showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of 
the Maker movement.  It’s a place where people show what they are making, 
and share what they are learning.

Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to 
garage tinkerers.  They are of all ages and backgrounds. The aim of Maker Faire 
is to entertain, inform, connect and grow this community.


The Albuquerque Chapter of the American Sewing Guild will be on hand all day
Saturday to demonstrate basic sewing techniques with a gift bag make and take.

And don't forget the New Mexico State Fair, September 10th through the 20th at
Expo New Mexico.  Have a quilt, garment or other handmade piece to show off?
Entry dates are Friday, August 28th and Saturday the 29th.  Judging takes place 
Monday, August 31st through Wednesday, September 2nd.  

Details and entry form are available at:


Leslie Ashcraft's "Fitting Solutions" class is scheduled for Wednesday,
