Our July speaker will be Jessica VanDenburgh, owner of Sew Many Creations.  Jessica's business   began as a custom bag business in 2007 after much encouragement from friends and family.  In 2011, the company developed into a bag pattern business geared towards quilters.  After much frustration with the bag & accessory patterns that were available (mostly written for seamstresses), she decided to create a line of easy to make, beginner friendly patterns that quilters could understand.  They use the same tools and language that quilters use.  In 2013, quilt patterns were added as well.  Her patterns are easy, beginner friendly and many of them use pre-cut fabrics such as jelly rolls, layer cakes and fat quarters.

In addition to speaking at our July guild meeting, Jessica will teach two classes:

 
Jessica will teach students to make her All Around Tote Bag on Sunday, July 15 at the North Plains Senior Center.  Cost is  $25 to the guild and a $10 pattern fee to Jessica at the class.

There are spaces available for this class.  To register, call Sue @ 503-730-6068

Class supply list can be found on the sidebar to your right.


On Monday, July, 16, from 9am-noon at the New Life Baptist Church in Hillsboro (where our guild meeting is held), Jessica will speak on fusibles, interfacing, and hardware used in making wallets, bags, and totes.  Participants will not be making anything and there are no supplies required to bring.  This is a lecture/ demonstration and there will be ample opportunity to view samples of bags and ask questions.  Members and non members are welcome.  Cost is $15.00 payable to the guild.  To register, contact Sue @ 503-730-6068.
