Saturday Quilting Days at the Niobrara Senior Center are scheduled for  April 6 and May 4.  Doors open at 9 a.m. and close when everyone is tired and wants to go home (usually around 4 or 5 p.m.).

Spring Class Offerings

We will be offering some classes to at Niobrara Senior Center, coinciding with our First Saturday Sewing Days.
Open sewing is always available on these Saturdays - but we are also going to add opportunity for learning some new techniques and projects.  I think that everyone who has come to our Saturday Sewing Days would agree that it is very enjoyable and inspiring to see what others are making, share in the camaraderie of fellow quilters and sewists, as well as have uninterrupted sewing time to work on projects. 


 
April 6, 9 a.m.   Paper Piecing - This is your opportunity to learn a technique that gives great control and accuracy to your quilt piecing.The project will be a paper pieced table topper with a choice of center blocks that can be easily finished in one day. This makes a great Mother's Day gift, or something you will be proud to display on your own table.  
$10 class fee plus pattern and materials, available at Lickety Stitch.  Pre-registration required.


May 4, 9 am - Bow Tucks Bag - Make this stylish purse in your choice of fabrics for a bag that is unique and just your style. These also make wonderful gifts.

NEW Point-Of-Sale System - We are making some big changes at Lickety Stitch - most of which you may not even be aware of as they are behind-the-scenes type of improvements to make shopping at our store more convenient, accurate, and enjoyable for our customers. We are changing to a point-of-sale check-out procedure which will enable us to keep more accurate inventory, integrate our website and brick-and-mortar store, and make transactions easier and faster.  The new system will have the capability to implement a loyalty rewards program for our customers. We may be asking you for a phone number, e-mail address, and your birthday the next time you are in - so we can provide a more personal shopping experience and reward you for your loyalty and support.

INVITING OUR CUSTOMERS TO SHOWCASE THEIR SEWING PROJECTS HERE:
