September 2013 Newsletter


New Fabrics:

Lots of new fabric (and plenty of other interesting bits & pieces) have come in recently, and I haven't sent a newsletter for ages. I'll try to cram lots of stuff into this one, to bring you up to date. We've been really busy of course, and things seem to be falling into place in the shop. I have help now in the shop which is taking some of the pressure off me, and Tracy brings lots of experience, enthusiasm & energy which is just fabulous. She has capably managed to run the shop while i have been away for the past 3 weeks. (No not a holiday - really crook & in bed!)

I fell in love with this Civil War quilt when I saw it in Sydney at a Trade Show in June. I just couldn't stop looking at it and looking INTO it. I found it really compelling so i thought i'd take the plunge and do the whole Block of the Month thing. A new direction for me, but the response so far has been excellent. Cost is $40 per month and we expect be starting the first posting in November. It will run over 12 month. (for locals we will be offering this in the Studio with Sara Miller, last Saturday of the Month, 9.30 - 1.30. Sara is very knowledgeable about Civil War plus she is a very experienced Tutor. (if there is a better way to do a block, Sara will teach it)

i cannot get the image loaded, so to view the quilt, do a search in the website for Hampton Ridge. Sorry about that - its worth a look!

Anyway, that has partly brought you up to date. We even some really great jigsaws which are fantastic 'quilts'. They are brain teasers (ie educational) & produced in Australia by an Australian company. I haven't got them loaded on the website yet, but they would make a great coffee table pieces or excellent gifts for quilters. Stay watching....

I'm STILL having trouble with Telstra...i can hardly believe it! The mobile is still the best way to get me at the moment. I'm past annoyed but trying to stay cool. I apologise for any issues this has caused. I still live in hope they can transfer my home line to the shop (1.5 kilometres)...eventually.....

Cheers for now,
