A monthly apron pattern and sewing class
As you may have heard, everything’s coming up aprons lately at the ABQ Sewing Studio. Our year-long apron club meeting takes place the last Monday of the month from 1 pm – 4 pm (excepting December). New participants are welcome!
In person, and online
The club currently includes our ‘in-person’ participants who come to the studio to sew, visit, get my help and have tasty snacks. Currently, there are three in-person participants, as well as a seven member on-line group that are sprinkled across the country.
Dutch Honey Cake was this month’s featured baking with the recipe given to all participants. The tablecloth you see here was part of a matching handmade tablecloth/apron set I received at a wedding shower back in 1981. Those were the days of polyester fabrics. The nice thing about polyester is that it is practically indestructible and it never needs pressing! That’s why I still have both 37 years later.
How the Apron Club works
Every month our participants receive the next apron pattern along with tasty recipes, stories and membership to our private Tie One On Apron Club facebook group. That’s where we share what we’ve made, what we’ve baked and our own apron reminiscences.
For our first in-person meeting Merle, Karen and Christine had the option of making the waistband with gathering or tucks. Everybody decided on tucks.
Four o’clock rolled around quickly but found all the girls with a cute apron. Merle’s husband Ron popped in to get our picture. He’s a bit shaky with the camera but you’ll get the general idea!
