Beginning in April, join us the FIRST Monday of each month for STITCHING DOWN UNDER! We're taking a trip down under and stitching up designs from our favorite Australian designers! 
Not only will there be a different stitchery each month, but also a different way to finish up each project.  The first months' project is a mini quilt made using the fabric line Noteworthy by Sweetwater for Moda.

One month the stitchery will be finished as a stitching bag, another month we will make a pincushion, another month the project will be framed, etc.
