the Joy Bag class!

 Hello everyone! Just wanted to leave a quick note that I will be teaching a class on the Joy bag this Saturday at Colby Sew and Vac here in Colby. There's still time to sign up. The class fee is $30 and includes the pattern. If you haven't been in to visit Colby Sew and Vac, you really should go. They have a huge store with tons of fabric and a giant classroom. They will also be part of a shop hop this weekend, so it's definitely the place to be.

The sweet ladies there wanted me to try out a new stabilizer they now carry. It's called Soft and Stable by Annie. This is the best interfacing I have ever used. It's so soft that they purse is actually comfortable to carry. But it's also strong! So the purse stands up, sort of like Peltex. Honestly it's a dream and I wholly recommend it for all of my bag patterns. Thanks for introducing me Lisa and Ronda!

 If you can't make it this weekend, you can buy the Joy bag at my etsy shop!

Melissa: Love your JOY bag -- it makes me joyful just looking at it. The appliqued flowers at the top is a really nice touch. I'm glad that you found my new product, Soft and Stable, too. I developed it to use in place of battings and other stabilizers in purses, bags, placemats and more. It gives great body and stability but maintains a soft feel. Thanks for recommending it in your patterns! Annie
