Upcoming Activities:

Tell Them Tuesday !!  ( added ..Jan. 28/2020) 

Earlier this month, the Saskatchewan Teacher’s Federation launched

their latest campaign, Tell Them Tuesday.

An updated version of last year’s Tell Him Tuesday.

This campaign invites current and retired teachers, students, parents

and members of the public to write an email to their MLA and the Minister of Education.

The Federation is using an online portal to simplify the writing process for this campaign.

All you have to do is enter your name, postal code and email address,

then the website will give you an email that you may edit and send

to your MLA and the Minister of Education right from the platform.

The more real-life stories we can share with the provincial government,

the more likely we are to affect real change.

Please visit TellThemTuesday.com to sign up and join the campaign,

and encourage other educators and those interested in Public Education  to do so. 

If you have any questions, you may contact the STF

at advocacy@stf.sk.ca or 1-800-667-7762.

Sew Much Fun

FEBRUARY 21 – Stack and Whack – Create exciting effects with fabric, quickly and easily, using the Stack-n-Whack method. You will create stunning blocks spontaneously by simply layering and cutting fabric repeats. Google “stack and whack quilt photos” to view some examples. ($20 plus materials)

MARCH 19 – Return of the Rope Bowls with Trish Thurgood York. This class was so popular and “sew much fun” last year that Trish is teaching this technique again to those who missed out on last year’s class. Rope Bowls are SO on trend! Come on out and be one of the cool kids on the block! ($20 includes rope to make one bowl. Additional rope can be purchased at the class.)

MAY 1 – Free Motion Quilting with Jean Berndt. Ever wanted to try doing your own quilting? Jean is the person to learn from! This will be a day of learning techniques and practicing before you tackle a small project of your own. ($20)

MAY 28 – Learn to Use Your Serger with Kathy from The Sewing Machine Store. Just bought a serger and you don’t know how to use it? Have you had a serger in your basement for the last decade that you don’t know how to use? Need a serger refresher class? This is the class for you! ($30)

JUNE 25 – Personal Sewing Day – Right now, this day is set aside for anyone who wants to work on personal sewing or quilting projects. We’ve been learning that these days are not just sew much fun, but are also good for the soul! ($5)

Date to Be Determined – Nuno Felted Scarves – We are currently looking for an instructor for a nuno felting class. Google it! You’ll be amazed at how beautiful these scarves are! We’ll keep you posted once a date has been set.

**Important to know. All project days are held in Eamer Auditorium, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm. To register for a class (or if you want to attend on one of these dates to get some personal sewing done!), please email Wanda Drew at wandaldrew@gmail.com .
