July 2017 Class/Event Calendar


Well, here we are - another month passed in the blink of an eye and we're knocking on the door of July!


I'm not sure how time passes so quickly but I DO know that if we don't seize the opportunity, we'll miss out on some fun things happening at Social Fabric.  June's calendar had fewer classes due to a buying trip and a vacation, but July's calendar - well, it's action packed for sure. 


For those of you waiting on a photo process on fabric class - we're hoping to offer that when we get into our new space and can create a dedicated space for a large dark room.  So hang on - September possibly???  


Until then - enjoy these classes.  We've got some NEW ones. The Busy Book Series (Saturdays July 1 thru 22) are GREAT for new moms who want to learn how to sew AND make something for their toddlers.  Plus, a busy book made by mom - well, that's a family treasure.  You're not just learning to sew, your making something your child can give to his/her child!  We're SUPER excited about these classes and we have a new teacher (a young mom herself) guiding you through this series.


Butterfly crowns (you may ask).  Molly's butterfly crowns were simply the hit of the Lydia Place Handbags for Housing Fashion show.  We cannot tell you how many people told us they wanted to make one for themselves.  So here's your opportunity.  Don't delay in signing up for this class.  It will fill up fast.


So, check out the calendar and give us a call at 360-733-1323 to enroll!

Saturday, July 8, 12-3 Family Photo Prayer Flag.  This is a more personal kind of prayer flag where we take your family photos, copy them and transfer them to fabric (this will not damage the photos). Then you make a prayer flag from these family photo images. $30.

Saturday, July 8, 2-4. Busy Book. WHAT the heck is a busy book? If you don’t have small children, you’re forgiven if you don’t know what this is.  It’s a book that has different pages with each page having a learning skill for a young child to practice.  For example; lacing, snaps, buttons, colors, shapes - those kinds of skills.  Natasha has created an AMAZING series of classes, each featuring TWO Busy Book Pages per class.  EVEN IF you’re not a great seamstress you can sign up for as many or as few as you like! If you have a small child, think of the treasure this busy book will be for them.  It could be passed down to THEIR kids!  Each class  is $30 (again - you make 2 pages per class) and the series will run 2 Saturdays in July (July 8 and 22) and 2 more Saturdays in August.  Take as many or as few as you like.
