  • Join us for a fun and relaxed October evening meeting as we embrace our creativity in a big (and tiny way) with fabric postcards. We’ll be creating them using fusibles so feel free to bring those already fused scraps you’ve been hoarding. And, you won’t need to haul your sewing machine. For fabrics, think fall holidays, Christmas or whatever theme you’re feeling.
