Weekend Projects & Quick Gifts

Lecture Description: Projects that can be made in a weekend (or less!) yield quick gratification. With a smaller investment of time and money per project, they also make great gifts. From purses and placemats to lunch bags and travel accessories, you will discover terrific ideas for easy projects and gifts for all ages. Annie will share a trunk show of samples including ideas for practical and useful projects for organizing your sewing and personal spaces. Learn techniques that make these projects even easier from using the proper stabilizers to foolproof methods for installing zippers, working with vinyl and mesh, and more. Discover two awesome techniques for turning fabric tubes for handles and straps and learn tips for adding hardware to make adjustable straps. Learn how to make your own bias binding to match any project, including easy methods for cutting bindings in a small space. Discover tips for binding raw edges and the secrets to beautiful, wrinkle-free bindings, even on corners and curves! Sometimes using just the right machine foot, tool, or a particular supply makes all the difference between easy and hard, so Annie will also share lots of tips about her favorite tools and supplies. Bring your gift list -- you'll leave excited, energized, and ready to go home and make some easy projects!
