Favorite Photos from Sew Fun February 2012

Friday, March 16th, 2012

Every month each of our Quality Sewing & Vacuum centers hosts a Sew Fun lecture/demo class that is Free for Sew Fun Members (if you don’t know about Sew Fun, be sure to learn more about Sew Fun Classes & Memberships).

A big part of each Sew Fun is the show & tell, and photos are taken of the wonderful creations that get displayed. I’ve gone through and picked my 10 personal favorite photos from Sew Fun February 2012 show & tell from amongst all the stores. Here they are; click on any of them to see them full-sized:
