Our backpack strapping is in from France and it is perfect for this going to Grandma’s backpack. The pattern is by Erica Plank of Unseenhands and like all her patterns it is adorable fun with embroidery and applique. Sew Pro has many of her patterns in stock, we have the quilt retreat laundry bag, the going away to college laundry bag and many of her snowmen and winter embroidery patterns.
Erica Plank is an amazingly talented and hard working quilter and sewer who travels the country selling her patterns. We hope everyone will take a look at her patterns. We have her templates for Cathedral Windows and the pattern. I hope we will be able to fit in a class on her method of sewing Cathedral Windows.
Southern Vintage is one of our new Blocks of the Month. Mike stopped by with the 12 foot ladder today to make room for her and she is hanging in the classroom area. I think she warms the area nicely. There is a limited supply of this Block of the Month so please call early.
The Fold N Stitch Wreath class will be held one more time on Columbus Day Monday, October 10th. If you missed this class with Jane Ashbrook call as it is a great class.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month is October and we will be sewing Patient Pillows with the soft velcro for cancer patients to place under the seat belt during recovery and after surgery. The small pillow can be velcro’d in place to keep the seat belt away from incisions or sore areas. We will be sewing these on Wednesdays. It takes very little time to sew and can make a huge difference in someone’s recovery. Call to sign up or come by for the directions and then drop off your pillows. We will deliver them to area hospitals and to the relatives of patients we know are receiving treatment. It is such an easy thing to sew and you will feel better knowing you have done something.
And last but not least we will be having our first
Save the dates from October 7th through the 10th as every day we will have different items on sale and we will have a raffle drawing on the last day of the sale. So shop early for the best selection.
Thank you for your loyalty to Sew Pro. We would not exist without our loyal customers. I am amazed at the breadth of talented sewist and quilters in our area. It is fun to share the knowledge and the joy of sewing. I am also thankful that Mike has the patience to work diligently repairing and servicing sewing machines. Without a repairman we would not be able to sew or quilt.
Take care and enjoy our Indian Summer on Cape Cod.
