September is National Sewing Month Manchester Sewing Machine Center is celebrating National Sewing Month by showcasing you, our customers, and all of your incredible creations. Our 10th Annual Sew America Day will be Saturday, September 18, 2004 from 900 am - 500 pm. We are planning a full day of informative demonstrations, inspiring trunk shows, booths from local sewing-related businesses, and a fun fashion show. Stay for as little or as much of the day as you wish. There is no need to register and no fees. Come and help us celebrate our favorite passion - SEWING!

Fashion Show
Our fashion show is being created around YOU! We need your garments, wearable art, and quilts to make this happen. Don’t be shy - if you have made something you think is special, others will think so too. Inspiration comes from seeing the work of many people and making it your own. Even the simplest items can be inspiring! There are many of you who have made gorgeous jackets, vests, and other unique items, and we’d love to showcase them. Think of this as a “sewing reunion”! Please call to request fashion show entry form(s). Fashion show items must be brought to the store no later than Tuesday, September 14th.

SEMINARS Schedule of Events

Ever since Riverdance, our fascination with Irish Step Dancing has been big! The costumes these dancers wear are full of meaning and are very elaborate. Liz Fracchia, who works with Dede Golden, owner of Golden Harp Irish Dance Co. in Bolton, will give us an overview on the history of these remarkable costumes. She will talk about the origins of the artwork, how they are applied with appliqué and embroidery, and the variety of fabrics and techniques used to create these masterpieces! Sudberry House, a national supplier of beautiful Cross Stitch Embroidery designs, will be here to show you some very unique ways to show off your embroideries! Their intricately digitized cross stitched patterns look like real handwork. Their selection of design packs, watch kits, boxes, purses, pincushions and more will astound you!

USED SEWING, CRAFT, GARDENING & COOKBOOK SALE TO BENEFIT BLOOMFIELD HIGH SCHOOL SEWING PROGRAM
Lois Neumann loves her job teaching sewing to the young people at Bloomfield High School. She feels that it is extremely important for this "urban suburban", mostly minority, school to instill social and civic responsibility in all that they do. To this end, the kids have participated with the Curechief Foundation (they made 211 head scarves for cancer survivors), and have made baby quilts, stuffed animals, and pillows for the Connecticut Childrens Medical Center. They did all this in between their required class work! Lois is happy to report that the sewing and foods classes (taught by Karen Waltman) are well supported and attended. The students learn patience, creativity, and are proud of what they have accomplished. She reports that they especially love to make clothing and use the serger. Some have even expressed an interest in career possibilities in this field. With the proceeds from this book sale, Lois hopes to purchase additional accessories for their Janome sewing machines, and to start saving for an embroidery machine. Manchester Sewing Machine Center has raised money and garnered donations for many area school systems at past Sew America Days, and is pleased to help Bloomfield High School. They will benefit from the seemingly unending generosity of the many sew-ers in Connecticut. What can you do to help? It’s time to clean out those book shelves of all your unwanted or unused (or “Why did I ever buy that?”) sewing, craft, gardening, or cookbooks, and donate them to this very worthwhile cause! We will sell all your unwanted books for $1.00 - $5.00 at our Sew America Day on Saturday, September 18. Proceeds will go to the Bloomfield High School Sewing Program. Bring in your books anytime - even on the day of the event. You’ll probably go home with a few, too! We will also be taking any donations of fabric and notions. Your donations will help the school in their ongoing pursuit of encouraging young talent to develop skills that improve self esteem. Thank you in advance for your support! *Do you have a worthy cause that could use some help? Maybe we can help yours next year! Call Pamela Busque for more info.

QUILTING BY THE YARD

The CUREchief Story:
When Sandy Centarino’s childhood friend, Patti, announced that she had cancer of the lymphnodes, Sandy was determined to help her friend recover in any way possible. Her CUREchief design was inspired by the soft fleece coats she made for her daughters. This simple triangle of fabric is meant to serve as an important statement to help show encouragement and hope to anyone touched by this disease. Over ten thousand CUREchiefs have been donated to area hospitals and cancer centers, since the CUREchief Foundation has been formed.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?
On Sew America Day, Manchester Sewing Machine Center will be an official drop-off center for CUREchief squares. They will be accepting donations of 22" squares of soft fabric (cottons, flannels, fleece). If you would like to help them with the sewing process, contact them through their website www.curechief.com

"Show you care - cut a square!"
