News

Beginning November 1st you will be able to purchase our 2017 Row by Row pattern and kit!

Come on in and get some “Sew Flippin FUN!” or give us a call to place your order.

We do not have a shopping cart; we are a bit “old fashion”. Please call 978-346-9292; ask for Linda or Helen and they will personally take care of your order.

The 2017 theme was “On the GO” and our row pattern was “Sew Flippin FUN!” – Everyone loves the beach and that is where we all GO for summer time FUN! Kick off your flip flops and stick your toes in the water. Walk barefoot in the sand. Pick up the shells and sea glass strewn along the beach. Our row has it all. The drunkards path block creates the meandering sand and water. The block can be pieced the tradition way or machine appliquéd the fusible way. An embellishing kit with little flowers for the flip flops, beads for sea glass and sea shell buttons are included to complete your row.

The pattern features the row, and two bonus projects:

  • Bonus project 1 – Add a license plate to a nine-patch drunkards path block unit to create a “Sew Flippin FUN” banner.
  • Bonus project 2 – Make a 36” x 36” wall hanging.

Pattern – $5.00

Sew Flippin Fun Row Kit (includes top and embellishing kit) – $19.00

This banner is made using “left over” fabric from the Sew Flippin Fun row kit.

2017 Events & Workshops

Timeless Treasures introduced a New Program this summer and we are thrilled to be among one of the first shops in the country selected to present this program in our shop!

Toni Steere, a National Educator for Timeless Treasures, began traveling the country this summer, sharing her quilting expertise, with Timeless Treasures in the spotlight. As a pattern designer, sales representative and former shop owner, Toni has 30 years of quilting and teaching experience. She is known for her pattern design company, Wing and a Prayer Design – the name behind Timeless Treasures’ popular Block of the Month programs and fabric collections.

Toni will present a trunk show style educational lecture and will teach two all day workshops. The lecture, “Toni’s Timeless Travels” will be on Monday, October 9th. She will teach the workshops, “Fringed & Fabulous” on Saturday, October 7 and “Tips, Tricks and Techniques” on Tuesday, October 10.

AND…we are offering Toni’s latest Block of the Month, Mystical Prism, beginning in September.

Mystical Prism Block of the Month

This stunning block of the month, designed by Toni Steere and Jenny Foltz of Wing and a Prayer Design, features the 2017 Tonga Mystical Treat collection by Timeless Treasures. This batik collection consists of twenty fabrics in a palette of deep blue to turquoise with purple accents. Resembling a kaleidoscope, the Mystical Prism quilt uses traditional piecing with unusual fabric color combinations. Points are easily made with Creative Grids rulers or the paper template included with the pattern.

Two options for purchasing for the Mystical Prism block-of-the-month…and you get to choose. Work at your own pace and purchase it all at once OR receive the block of the month over 12 months.

  2. Beginning September 2017 and running for 12 months – $24.95 per month.

Registration Fee – $24.95 (to be applied to the total cost when purchasing the BOM all at once OR to be the final payment when purchasing it monthly)

Finished size: 102” x 102”. Kit includes pattern and all fabrics for the top, border and binding. Backing fabric will need to be purchased separately.

Technique Classes:

  • The Art of Sewing by Hand – Slow down, we move too fast! Take a break from sewing everything quickly by machine and create a beautiful work of art, all sewn by hand. Crazy Quilting, Hand-Appliqué, English Paper-Piecing, Sashiko, Redwork, etc are all works of art sewn by hand. This is an opportunity to get together with others who like to “slow down” and enjoy the process of sewing by hand! Class is held on the 3rd Saturday of each month.
  • Psst…the teacher is not here! – When our classroom is not in use, it will be available for independent sewing. Come by yourself or get together with some of your friends and sew (quilt) in our classroom for a few hours or even for the entire day!  This is a great opportunity to work on your UFQs (Un Finished Quilts) or PhDs (Projects Half Done), start a new project, lay out a quilt or two, or just hang with the gang. Space is limited so registering is a must.
    • Fee – two options available
      • Open to all who register – fee is $10.00 per person
      • Rent the room for the day – fee is $80.00 (this would be your closed session)
      • Check the Red Barn Calendar for dates when the classroom is not in use. Then contact Linda (978-346-9292 or redbarn@redbarnonline.com) to schedule your time to use the classroom.

The time spent behind your sewing machine is some of the most treasured…

… so you deserve a machine that lets you get the most out of it. The Horizon Memory Craft 9400 was created with special, easy and time-saving features. Escape into a world of pure creativity with the Horizon Memory Craft 9400! Stop by to see it, touch it and stitch with it!
