Special Events

Thrilling classes and events for St. Charles, October 2014

Our show will be filled with classes that just keep getting better every year! Shopping days Friday and Saturday are open to the public. Day admission may be purchased on site. There may be classes with openings and you may sign up for additional classes at this event. But, be aware that very few classes may be available because most everyone preregisters and teachers have few available kits. Susan Greening Davis joins us again as our emcee for the week.

During our weekend remember to look for our display of gift baskets and purchase raffle tickets to benefit breast cancer research. Our vendors, manufacturers, teachers and exhibitors have generously donated enticing designs, products and accessories that would be a thrill for any Stitcher to take home for the price of a raffle ticket. The week wouldn't be complete without our Round Robin evening when four teachers each present a kitted project. Each session has four different kits and you may sign up for either session or both sessions. Join us at our Meet and Greet on Wednesday evening for a preview of class projects. Join us on Thursday evening for our Preshow Shopping evening for members. This is a free event to members and $15 to nonmembers. Please preregister for all the events. The Saturday Night Event is the always sold-out gathering where Susan guides us through a night of fast paced games, a lecture, a project, various surprise's, a silent auction to benefit breast cancer research and the wonderful, tasty dinner buffet.

Our Vendor Round Robin
Here is an opportunity to spend time with 6 talented vendors/designers in a Round Robin. Each is a designer, manufacturer, and/or shop/internet business. Come and learn a little about them and receive 6 small kits designed by these participating vendors/designers. All six vendors/designers will present their project and explain finishing while giving insight as to how they began in business and/or what inspires them.

Stitcher's Lounge
Our St. Charles show will have a "Stitcher's Lounge" set up for anyone to drop in for socialization and stitching between 5pm and midnight.

Look over the classes and events, examine the photos and descriptions and sign up as soon as you can make a decision. We look forward to seeing you in the fall!
