Let's Stay Connected

Monthly Minis’ - each month we will provide a link to a free “mini” project for you to try. These will be projects that you can most likely complete in a few hours or less of sewing.

This info is also listed on our guild facebook page and we invite you to show your completed projects there in the comment section under the current posting of the monthly project.  

February 2021


This month’s mini is a cute herringbone pincushion. You can use up some of your scraps to make one.





















January 2021


This month's mini is a Valentine’s Day Mug Rug - because February will be here before we know it, and we all need a special mug rug for Valentine’s Day. Consider making one for a friend to brighten what can sometimes be a dreary month! It’s a larger mug rug - finishing as a 9 inch square. Note that the instructions have you make the “house” a little wider than necessary, and then you trim it to the correct width. I’ve also included a link to a tutorial that has a great binding technique for small projects like this. Enjoy!

December's mini is a cord keeper - a quick project to help manage all those charger cords we seem to have these days.  All you need are some small fabric scraps, a bit of interfacing, and an inch of Velcro.  This mini is fast - under an hour, and they would make quick and cute gifts.  Happy sewing!
