Table Runners Solid or spice it up with a machine embroidery! Simple block quilting! Use up those scraps or precious pieces from favorite clothes. Just measure your table for length and width and bring those fabric scraps, use ours or buy new to make it perfect!
Recovering Yep, we can even help update those chairs and stools to match your décor! Many of the chairs, just flip them over and remove the screws holding the seat in place, so you only have to bring the seats! (Hint: number the chair and the seat so you match them up again.) Depending on the design you may have to bring the stool with you. Full recovering like on the rocker will take more time, but is easy to do. Just bring the cushions.
Small Throw or Wall Hanging Wall hangings can be any size, shape or even framed. Small throws are usually 60 x 72. What about those beautiful scarves as a wall hanging! Let your imagination go!

We will share our project ideas while we eat lunch, go through the fabric scraps, create our lists and head off to the stores to get necessary supplies.
