2 A MESSAGE FROM ALYSSA & SCOTT Summer is finally here! We’ve had a wonderful Winter/Spring session, and now we are all looking forward to an evening with all of you at our 34th Annual Club Banquet. Alyssa and I would like to thank our entire education team, kit room team, and each of the educators who visited us! Now that we have taught at least one class, we certainly recognize all the hard work and dedication required to deliver education and projects. On to this summer…well, we are implementing a few changes… 1st – 2019 SUMMER CLASS PASS: This summer we’ve added 30% more classes of all kinds to this summer’ class pass.

We have chosen to do this to give our team a break so they can enjoy summer and their families. Please note closing the stores on Sundays throughout the summer months will have no impact on all classes scheduled on Sundays. 3rd – SERGER CLUB: We’ve listened, and now we are delivering a SERGER CLUB in the FALL 2019. Pam Mashie from Baby Lock will be visiting and working with us to kick off our new Serger Club at the end September! Save those dates, and look for more details in a few months! We will keep you informed as soon as we can. As you will see within this Summer 2019 Sewing Times, we are really looking forward to kicking off a great 2nd half of 2019 with many wonderful classes. Our outstanding education staff has assembled another great program. In addition, we have a variety of educators coming to deliver amazing programs at Aurora Sewing Center over the next several months: • Jessica Kapitanski (Sallie Tomato): June 13th – 15th • Pam Mashie (Serger Club kick-off): Sept. 26th – 28th • Suzi Parron (Barn Quilts): July 11th – 13th • Kimberbell hands-on Event: Sept. 30th • Lindsey Rae (Fit to Flatter): July 17th & 18th • Christa Watson (Christa Quilts): Oct. 3rd – 5th • Taylor Henderson (Anita Goodesign Event): • Mike Johns (Momma’s Boy Design): Oct. 26th & 27th Sept. 14th & 15th • Tamara Evans (OESD Event): Nov. 2nd & 3rd
