I attended the Attic Window Quilt Shop Open House and Big Sale on Thursday as well as the Make It Take It classes.  We had so much fun I almost forgot to take pictures.  Three different projects were available for each of us to make that day.  Above is the little thread catcher that I made.  It is still a work in progress as I have to sew on the cute little buttons that will hold each tab down.
Above, teacher Barb H. shows a student how to make her thread catcher.
Kits were provided for all projects and above are the fabric choices we could pick from for the thread catcher.
Next up, Marilyn taught us how to cut and make the table toppers.
Again we had various fabric kits offered.  I chose these fabrics and made this one, which is still a work in progress.  I decided to add the binding at home.
Next, Chris showed us how to make her mystery project.
This is the cute little treat bag for that special child at Halloween.
As a sample, Chris gave us each a hot chocolate packet to slide into the little bag.  This was to show us how we could slide items inside this unique bag. You could add candy, money, gift cards.  You could even change the fabric and use it for Christmas or a birthday.
Since I was too busy sewing I didn't get student names.  However, I'm going to post pictures anyway so you can get an idea of all the fun we had.

I think it's safe to say that a great time was had by all!  If you'd like to participate in an event like this, keep an eye on the calendar because Chris usually has Craft Day in November.  That is an event I don't want to miss as Chris always provides wonderful projects to make.
