BAAA Wool Club - Club Fee


It's time for the first project debut!!

Our BAAA WOOL CLUB is a one-year commitment with a monthly fee of $25 + postage of $8 per month - totaling $33 per month.  Olde Green Cupboard will invoice you on a quarterly schedule via PayPal.  Each quarter will total $99.  The Registration form does require a credit card be kept on file by OGC in the event the quarterly payment is not met.  

Here is a link to the Registration form.  Please print, complete and mail directly to the address noted on the form. 

Several of you have asked to see some of the projects - just to be sure this is a club you feel comfortable joining.  I do agree with you.... it's a bit scary sometimes to commit to a program when you are just not sure what all will be offered - and will you enjoy the projects - and more importantly, will you like them?  Are they YOU?  So with that in mind... I've decided to give you photos to look over.  The first project is a cotton and wool table mat.  My sister, Vicky, came up with this idea and I thought is was super-dooper!

One of the things that always disappointed me after making a table mat was seeing the design hidden after I would decorate the table by placing a basket, flowers, etc.  We've left one end open so when placing a plant, candle or lamp on the mat, you can still see and enjoy the design.

Our first picture is the finished project - a quilted, wool, applique table mat!  Some of you may not be fabric "piecers" - that's okay!  If you are not a lover of using the sewing machine, we can do this project by hand. (honest...it's not hard.)  We are going to have all types of techniques in our club - hand piecing, machine applique, hand applique, embroidery, so hang on and learn along with the rest of the group.
                   
                  LOVE - WOOL MAT
12 1/2" x 16"


Check out the far end of this mat!  No applique! 
This is the area you will place your home decor items and the design will not be hidden!



The placement of the eggs and the inner shadow of the nest give it a 3-D appearance.  Dress it up with some crazy straight stitches to replicate twigs and your nest will look GREAT!





You will add some head "bobble" stitches, a big fat juicy worm and some chest feathers to give your bird a bit of character!

Layering and overlapping vintage mother of pearl buttons give a perfect appearance of berries in the tree.



Once the applique and embroidery is completed and the bias binding has been attached - place some blue running stitches along the inner edge of the binding to add a bit more texture and trim to the finished piece.

Your kit will come with all fabric and wool - the front piece is from a line of fabric I designed for Marcus Brothers.  The backing and binding will be different in each kit.  I can hear you gasping... NO... I WANT IT JUST LIKE YOURS!  Am I correct?  Well, this is where you and I are going to work together to get you "out of your box" and "TRUST ME" in my choices of fabric for you.  I was an art major in school and have been working with colors for nearly 50 years.  I will be very careful with my choices and I promise - if you just give it a chance, you will see how great it looks on the finished project.

Now, in addition to this August project you will also receive another one - smaller and so much fun to make.  Take a peak.... so sweet!  "I have wings that lift up on both sides and here is where I will keep your needles tucked away all tidy and neat!"



Plus there will be other sweet surprises in your package along with the patterns and instructions.  We'll also have demo's, teaching videos, suggestions as to where you can buy notions (if not available at your local quilt shop) and more.  Remember, this is YOUR club - have fun!  Here is the link to the registration form on our website.  If you need me to send it to you directly, email  oldgreencupboard@aol.com

So... are you ready to stitch with me?  Sign up today!  I'm only taking 50 members!  



Chat with you soon!

BAAA WOOL CLUB UPDATE & T-SHIRT!!


HI ALL!  I'm sure you've seen some of my postings for the BAAA WOOL CLUB that will kick off on August 1... right?  If not... here are a few photos (teasers) so you get the feel of the program and the type of "look" you will be working with~!

Here is one.... this is an Armchair Cozy!  This project will be one of your favorites... I'm sure of it!  PLUS... we will have a 'special' method of picking fabrics for each one!


The center flower is a pin cushion. This is also the center of the cozy that sits on the arm of the chair.

Two pockets!


A sweet woolie bird on one of the pockets.


Here are three heart 'ornies' that are fast and fun to make.  They look adorable all in a rustic, antique, primitive bowl and/or basket.

Ticking, wool and trim

Textured fabric, embroidery and trim

Textured fabric and wool pennies!

This little fellow is attached to a 'basket' used on your side sewing table to hold your thread, needles, scissors, etc.

One of my favorite projects.... a long clutch piece that can hold your rotary cutter, scissors,glasses, writing instruments, wool hooking tools.... so darn cute!

I am sew sweet.... under my wings  I will keep your needles safe and all in one place!

Plus... I will have videos showing you how to do special sewing techniques, fun little contests, puzzles, recipes, Facebook page, and MORE!  Extra projects will be available for each of you to work on if you are interested - they will be on the website.  

The Club gives  you each exclusive designs/kits with your yearly membership - which includes your postage for all kits.

Take a look at this!  I've designed a T-shirt for you....

When I showed the logo to my hubby.... he asked... why is the sheep wearing a crown?  My answer - She's the Queen of the Wool!  

I've been in Texas for three weeks and now headed backs to Florida.  I'm hoping you've had time to complete your registration form and mail to me.  Once I have you registered, I will email the entire group and give you more details!

Hope to chat with you soon!

We will also post information and fun "things" to the BAAA Wool Club Facebook page for you to enjoy.  This information will be in your first months package.   



We'll share recipes, videos, fun articles, and funny 'stuff' to keep us all laughing, photos of our finished projects, tips and tricks, along with -  "these are my favorites", and more.  It will be an interactive group - eventually we will all know each other and have a blast together!  To the best of my knowledge - I'm not sure there are any other clubs like this one is going to be!!!
