We have completed our very first day of online classes for Haus of Stitches in Humboldt, Saskatchewan.  We taught 3 classes on Hemming and mending like a Pro with Amanda; Coverhemming Part 1 with Liz; and Notion commotion for Quilters with Erin.  We also were able to tell Wendy’s customers (in the classes) about the annual Open House TODAY, 24th September at Haus of Stitches. Anyone attending the classes will receive their booking fee as a discount off their Open House purchases. But even if you did not tune in to the classes, Wendy has great in store offers – eg 28% off all fabric and yarn.

Here is what Wendy, owner of Haus of Stitches, had to say:

What an amazing class! It was great and please tell Amanda she did a wonderful job. We will definitely be doing more in the future!

We would LOVE to do more classes!!  We had fun presenting these and look forward to many more.
