Whether you’ll be busy with BBQ and fireworks or not, I hope you’ll find some time this week to explore the Blanket and Buttonhole Stitch … and don’t miss our Charity Project!
We will look at a very pretty and practical stitch … 1 stitch with 3 applications … the Blanket or Buttonhole Stitch. I think this stitch is a life skill that goes beyond embroidery.
SPECIAL PROJECT: Let’s put what we learn to work right away … We have an opportunity to participate in a Charity Project where we will make a little buttoned purse for “Stitches of Love”. Stitches of Love is the volunteer group of the “Back-to-School Clothing Drive” , an organization who provides school clothes and unique accessories for needy children all across Arizona.
