Saturday afternoon A and I held a Singer Sew Very Easy House Party. For those that don’t know, House Party is a company that works with other companies to help bring their products to the average buyer. As a party host, you get a party box full of free stuff and coupons to share with party guests!
As a party host, I attended a sewing machine orientation class at my local JoAnn’s store and was able to check out the Singer Confidence Stylist machine. It’s a beautiful machine that does everything you would need it to do. I love all the features and stitches. It really is so easy to use.
A really wanted to play some party games. So we filled a baby food jar with bight colored buttons and gave a prize to the person who guessed closest number of buttons in the jar. We also passed out 3 clothespins to each party guest and if they used the word “sewing” we took away a clothespin. The last one left with a clothespin won a prize. We gave away a half apron that we made earlier in the week, a reusable JoAnn shopping bag, and a starter sewing kit with some of the basic supplies.
We made the suggested party project – an accessory roll up that you could use to hold sewing tools, makeup brushes, colored pencils, etc. It was a great project and even a brand new sewer was able to complete it without any frustrations 🙂
We also made some reusable bags from old t-shirts. A super easy project that was a Martha Stewart segment on the DVD included in our party box.
Of course there was food!! We made vanilla cupcakes with vanilla cream cheese icing, button cookies (although the inventor – Bakerella calls them Coraline cookies and I got the idea from a fellow party host on Twitter), Crostini and cheese, summer sausage and crackers.
The cookies were yummy and none were left after the party! They looked so great. I think I like how they look with out the chocolate better, but they sure tasted great with chocolate. I bet they would look really cute dunked in different colored chocolate – more like buttons maybe?
Well, I’m all partied out. My house is clean – awesome and I had a great time with friends. Thank you Singer and House Party!!!
