Hot! Hot! Hot!
There are no better words
to describe Pahrump during the months
of July through
September. It’s
no fun to be out
in the heat so
look through
this newsletter
and plan to
spend some
cool days with Trudy and
Nancy and take a few classes at Bernina Sewing Center.
With this newsletter we are
continuing with our home
décor classes. This
newsletter will be
featuring the Living
Room. We will be
doing Pillows, Leaf
bowl, remote control holder and a
candle wrapper.
There will be four different
classes throughout the
newsletter and the cost
would be $75 plus supplies
if you would like to take all
four classes. If only one or
two classes interest you
that’s okay you can take
the individual classes for
$25 each plus supplies.
These are just some classes available so get out of
the heat and come join us
for a couple of cool classes.
Special Times for
Mastery Machine Classes
There are several customers that can’t make Mastery Classes on Thursday
so this newsletter we have
several Saturdays in August and September set
aside for Mastery Classes
so please check the calendars for times, dates and
class numbers.
