JELLYROLLS! Who doesn't love these curated collections of beautiful prints precut so you just start sewing with minimal cutting! We have added 14 patterns to the Free Patterns page of the Lickety Stitch website to help you decide how to use those beautiful Jelly Rolls - the link to this page is below. Also you will find links to information about how to deal with the pinked edges (where do you measure your 1/4" seam allowance from - the inside or the outside edge of the points?), how to improve the accuracy of your piecing with the strips, how and if you should pre-wash precuts, and where to purchase the Jelly Rolls we have available at Lickety Stitch.
The Chapmans will be back at Lickety Stitch to sharpen all scissors and knives on Friday, August 20, 2021, so put it on your calendar today. Drop off your dull blades either that morning or during the week before the clinic and they will be ready for you by the afternoon of August 20.
Beginning Quilting Skill Building Class July 29 Lickety Stitch is offering a one-day class July 29 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. for beginning quilters. If you have recently started quilting or are thinking of starting and want to learn or sharpen the very basic skills, this class is for you. We will be customizing the class to the level of skill of the attendees. The class will start with choosing fabrics, using the rotary cutter, sewing a 1/4-inch seam, matching corners, adding borders, pressing and more. If you want help learning to operate your sewing machine, we will also assist you. The focus of the class will be building skills you can use with every quilt or project you make in the future. The class is being offered Thursday, July 29, 2021, and will be limited to a maximum of 6 participants. Click here or call today to register for the class as we only have a few seats left.
