Sewing Parties at Country Cloth!
We are hosting sewing parties for:
Girls Night Out
You don’t even have to know how to sew OR quilt...we’ll teach you that, too!
You tell us what you want to make. Bring at least 3 friends. We do the rest.
Some of our ideas:
Birthday sleepover party: the birthday girl selects a fabric to make matching pillowcases & pajama bottoms for her & a few friends, then they’re off for a sleepover!
Wedding party: Gather the wedding party to make a memory quilt for the bride using your own photographs
Baby shower: Have a baby shower at the shop & make a quilt for baby
Graduation: Collect t-shirts once worn by the graduate & make a quilt
Girls night out: Call your girlfriends to make tote bags & have a glass of wine while you catch up on each other’s busy lives
Cost will be dependent on project & number of guests. We can do day, evening or all-night get togethers...the details are up to you!
Call (209) 736-4998 for details to get your party started!
Mo Gonzales will be teaching a few upcoming classes at Country Cloth. Here is a little history on her quilting carreer:
Mo began her quilting journey in 2001. She started sewing at the age of 6 with her mom & grandmother. As she got older she took tailoring classes & many art classes where she learned about color & designed gowns & wedding dresses. Mo designed giftware items back in the early 80's when she started her own business selling handmade gifts to Disneyland, Mervyns, Pier 39 & many other specialty shops. Her friends would always ask why she didn't quilt, so she took a quilting class & the rest is history!
After a few years, taking classes from well known teachers who contributed to her quilting knowledge, she began to teach around northern & central California. She has taught in Sacramento, Cameron Park, Winters, Brentwood, Ceres, Tracy, Manteca, San Mateo, San Jose, Morgan hill & many other towns. There is nothing that gives Mo greater joy than to see the smiles on her student's faces when they realize they have achieved a beautiful work of art in their quilts, plus the wonderful friendships that have been made doing what she loves.
Mo will teach the Gemstones Quilt on Thursday, June 13 & Friday, June 14. Quilt is on display in the shop.
