A blog about the great Sunshine Coast's Sewing and Patchwork Shop, Kimz Sewing and Patchwork Centre. We at Kimz love all Sewing, Patchwork and Machine Embroidery. We offer fun Classes and friendly knowledgable advice.
It was such a pleasure to have Lindsey Rae of Sew To Grow do a Leather workshop here at Kimz in May. We will definitely repeat this workshop with many more ladies wanting to learn how to sew with leather. Lindsey is such an amazing tutor and all of our ladies had a wonderful time and went home with a fantastic Urban Outlook tote.
Teflon feet help when stitching with leather as the metal from standard feet can stick. Also pop in your machine a leather needle so it pierce the leather with its chisel tip.
Danielle loves making bags.
Here is May and Judith sporting their new totes.

Lindsey has some amazing patterns and great tutorials on her website to check out. Stay tuned for the next workshop we have with Lindsey, as I'm sure spaces will go fast.
What a great weekend making Tuffets!!! Terri Ahrens joined us for a fantastic workshop where our ladies made their very own patchwork furniture.
Terri helps Jackie making this stunning Kaffe Fassett tuffet.
Cindy is giving her tuffet the sit test.
Tori also played with her Kaffe Fassett stash and made this exceptionally beautiful tuffet.
Carol (who is a lover of orange) made herself a very modern and funky tuffet.
And here is Juanita with her tuffet made in batiks from our store.
As you can see by those smiling faces we had lots of fun and everyone went home with their finished piece of furniture. We will definitely be having another of these workshops. Stay tuned for our next dates available so you don't miss out on all the fun!
