Sew Amused Stitchers

The Sew Amused Stitchers Neighborhood Group is a serendipitous group of sewers. Our many different sewing interests range from garment sewing, home deco, quilting, sewing for children, embroidery, needlework and community service. We make cancer caps for chemo patients and infant items for S.H.A.R.E. Pregnancy & Infant Loss. We have also made pet bedding for pet shelters and participate in other charity sewing efforts. Sewers of all ages and abilities are welcome. Bring your ideas and interests and join us as we encourage and inspire one another.

 

Unless noted, we meet the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 6:30 PM at the Spencer Branch of the St. Charles County Library (427 Spencer Road, St. Peters).

In July, we made a program change when we found out that SSM Health was out of cancer caps for their Cancer Resource Center.  Three members got together prior to the meeting to cut out 23 cancer scarves, fuse the interfacing to them, and sere the edges, and cut out 7 turbans.  At the July meeting we sewed all of the scarves and turbans.  

Kitchen Sewing

Our March meeting was another community service sewing session where we made 22 cancer turbans for SSM Health, St Joseph’s Hospital in St Charles.  Our group provides cancer caps to SSM on a regular basis through out the year. 

Cancer Cap Sewing

In January, member Jodell taught us how to make jelly roll rugs.  This is a great way to "taste" fun fabrics and make something useful for your home.

Jelly Roll Rugs

Our April meeting was kitchen inspired.  Karen demonstrated how to make a bowl cozy and Mary Anne Delker showed how to make a baked potato baker and appliqued potholder. 

Kitchen Sewing

Our February program was Valentine’s Day-inspired.  Carol  showed us a pillowcase that she made with entwined hearts on it and provided us with a template and directions.  She also discussed various tips and hints from Nancy Zieman’s books, 10-20–30 Minutes to Sew and 501 Sewing Hints for pockets, sleeves, zippers and elastic casings and different tapes that are available.  All of the hints Carol discussed are to help make our sewing better. 

Hearts and Tips

At our October meeting, member Sharlene presented a program on sewing with fleece.  Shar has been sewing with fleece for herself, her children, and for gifts for many years and had lots of tips and tricks for working with fleece.  As a nurse today, she makes baby blankets for fellow staff members when they have new little ones.
