2018 Olive Grace Studios Brave Block of the Month

I want to invite you to join my 2018 Brave Block of the Month. Why is it Brave… well it is a year of little affirmations that help us remind ourselves to be brave, courageous or to even help us get motivated. Inspired to be 12 months of artwork matted and framed on a fresh white wall. The techniques are simple patchwork and my favorite hand embroidery. The stitcheries are small enough to take on the road with you or put in a small basket for you to work on at night in front of the TV. I have had a great response so far and have ladies making it for other ladies, daughters, nieces and even one for them and one for their love ones. This sweet little quilt is meant to “pay it forward” and to hopefully lift us up in the coming year. My parents have graciously allowed me to open their home for BOM workshops. During the workshops we chit chat and sew! I encourage you to get your block traced and stitching started. Most important though enjoy other ladies company. I will help with any questions or show you a few stitches. This time is yours. I do ask for a RSVP each month because the seats are limited and it is a first come first serve basis. I hope you consider signing up today!!!!! Please email, message, or call me with any questions and to SIGNUP!!!!

Below is how OG classes work and how you will decide if you the class is for you!
There will always be a class level know as “sewinship” which is explained below. Class
Syllabus (agenda) will be available at the shop this will include all the supplies to be purchased and what you will need to bring to class. A lot of you are thinking where in the world are classes going to be given at... the old gingerbread house directly beside the shop for space purposes.  

sewinship is what level of sewing you are at!

Novice:your a rookie and need to learn the basics

Junior: your past the basics yet still need to get your feet wet

Intermediate: you know what your doing but not quite a senior

Senior: your a sewing guru and know exactly what your doing

Super: everybody can take and learn from one another

P.S.: We are here to help you so please ask questions...
call or email the shop today!
