Neal's Monthly Classes
Neal's has several classes that meet every month.  
There is no long term commitment required. 
Come to as many as you like as often as you can.  
Pick the class that suits your sewing needs. 

              Kimberbell FREE Demo
Kimberbell has a new monthly club.  Leslie will show you each month how to create a new project from Kimberbell.  If after seeing the new project you decide to purchase the kit with instructions and fabrics, you will also be given a code that allows you to go to the Kimberbell website and download the embroidery design needed for FREE.  If you have an embroidery machine, you will want to attend this free demo each month.  Make the most of your embroidery machine.  Get inspired and bring in your projects for sew and share.
Classes Meet 1st Wednesday of the Month

In Stitches with Mary Club

Mary Maurer is the creative force behind this club which is designed for all sewists.  No special machines needed.  Each month Mary will share a project... or 2 for you to make for yourself or as a gift.  Plus, in a section called Seams So Easy Quilt Along with Mary each month Mary will share instructions for one of eight 10" blocks - that comes with a 6-inch matching "baby sister".  All blocks can be constructed from ONE layer cake and will result in a quilt top at completion.  This club is designed for all skill levels.  Don't forget to bring projects to share with the class.  As we all know, handmade gifts are the most personal of all.

January 3, 2024 - An Announcement from "In Stitches with Mary":

As many of you already know, December 13, 2023 was my last club.  Deciding to bring "In Stitches" to an end was a very difficult decision and one I did not take lightly.  I am finding myself looking for more time for others in my life and after evaluating my priorities and my other needs and wants, this is the step I need to take.

I want to thank all of you for supporting me these past four years.  Many of you have been there since the beginning - even through the pandemic - and for that I will be forever grateful.  I have loved getting to know each of you and I hope you have learned from me as much as I have learned from you.

I will continue to be working at Neal's and plan to offer some new classes in the future.  What these will look like is still to be determined.  Keep reading the Neal's Newsletter and website for updates.  Thank you for being a part of my "In Stitches with Mary" journey and until I see you again, keep on sewing along.
