I've added yet another workshop to the June schedule and it's one that I KNOW is a hit with all ages! Register today here at Sew Dandee for the Make Your Own Monster Workshop on Monday June 24th. If that date doesn't work for you and you can gather 3 or 4 friends to join you, I'd be happy to schedule a private workshop for you. Just call me at the shop for more info! Here's the basic details:
Make your own goofy, creepy, scary, adorable monster out of fabric scraps, vintage buttons and whatever else we've got on hand! All you need to bring is an old pillow or a bag of stuffing and your creative spirit.
The workshop runs from 6pm until about 9pm and takes place right here at Sew Dandee at 105 Osborne St.
Anyone under the age of 16 needs to be accompanied by an adult. The cost is $25 plus gst per monster made. No sewing experience necessary. I only have room for four people per workshop so be sure to register here at Sew Dandee before June 22nd.If you'd like to have a private monster making workshop with up to four people, give me a call here at the shop and we'll make it happen! 204-453-5110

So, it's happening!! I'm so excited to get this off the ground and it would be great if you could join me in the launch party for our new workshop space and drop-in studio here at the shop! Workshops are starting up in June and I've already got the first one scheduled: Hem Those Pants! It's happening on June 18th from 6 to 9pm for $40. Come down to the shop to get more information and to register or call first to make sure the class hasn't already filled up. I'll be running this same workshop again twice in July so you'll get your chance to take part if the June date doesn't work for you.
And this is only the beginning of a plethora of super fun crafty workshops to come! I'll be sure to post a monthly calendar here and on our Facebook page for you to stay up to date on what's coming up. I also plan on having Crafty Drop-in Nights once a month too that will be a great place to just come hang out with your project, get some help and ideas and inspiration. LOTS more details to come so stay in touch and I hope to see you at the launch party!

Once again, my apologies for my lack of posts here on the blog. I tend to be more active on the Sew Dandee Facebook page so if you're one of the many Facebookers out there, be sure to start following our page if you don't already. It's the best place to find all the upcoming events, parties, sales and what's new on the racks info plus I post about all things crafty going on in the city too to keep you in the know. Well, Sew Dandee is now six years old and I believe it's time for some evolution here at the store! Over the next month I'll be making some changes here at the shop making room for a workshop studio space. I'm VERY excited about this project and would love any and all feedback, suggestions, requests from all of you. I plan to offer various workshops on projects that involve sewing, crochet, knitting, card making and whatever else you guys might want to try your hand at. Once I've got the workshop space all set up and ready to go, I also plan to offer the space up for drop-ins and craft nights, too for those of you who don't have your own sewing machines or crafting supplies. The best way to have your voice heard is to visit our Facebook page or pop me an email at sewdandee at gmail dot com with your ideas. Or better yet, come see me at the shop and tell me your thoughts in person! As of today, we're now open late on both Thursday AND Friday until 9pm so I hope to see you soon!
