Hello Sewing Friends
Firstly, A Special Thank you to Fay Suley, Genell Lilley and the Angels who helped make the Cancer Sew-Along day, such a great success. Thank you to everyone who participated and assisted in the Cancer Sew-Along fundraiser. What a wonderful day! See some of the results at the header of this newsletter. I am considering another project for next year, but time will tell.

Then there’s Pam’s ‘Friends’ quilt from Michele Hill’s William Morris, Janita’s ‘Antique Sampler’ English Paper Pieced, Needle turn and Reverse applique quilt from Sue Daley’s Designs, Sharyn’s ‘Wise Owls’ from Kookaburra Cottage, and so much more that you haven’t seen before..Crabapple Hill Studio’s cute ‘Girls Getaway’ and the very male ‘Vintage Tin’ quilt is available on the stand. And of course, work from the Machine Embroidery Club and the Little Things Mug Rug club, these ladies are always Creating wonderful projects.
Bag Ladies – I have new patterns coming in at regular intervals. Natalie Bird’s ‘Eva Tote’ sells fast, as does Leesa Chandler’s ‘Uptown Tote’.
Michele Hill fans – I have Michele’s latest books ‘Afternoon Tea with May Morris’ and ‘Stitching with Beatrix Potter’. And at last, “William Morris in Applique’ will be arriving soon.
New stock from BeBeBold: Dotty Sashiko, the One-stitch fabric. Visit us at the shop or the show to see our Hitomezashi one-stitch sample and I will show you how it’s done. A photo is in our news header. I have stencilled patterns and kits available.
I will be demonstrating feet & machine techniques on 2 of my favourite PFAFF machines, the Expression 4.2 at an amazing show special of $2999 – what a saving!, and the wonderfully light Passport 3.0 – on special at $849 with an extension table valued at $135. Visit me for a demo or to try a machine yourself.
Chris Dowell will be spending time on the Sit down ‘Sweet 16’ free motion quilting machine, for anyone who missed her last year, make a point to visit….at this time, I don’t have a scheduled day for her but I will be sending a follow-up email later this week.
The Sweet Sixteen will be on a Show Special, along with the Simply Sixteen on a Frame. I will have a very special price for my Simply 16 floor demonstration model, with included extras.
Well that’s about it for now so I will close with the wish that you are all well and that I will catch-up with you soon. Have a safe and happy week and don’t forget – If you see someone without a Smile, Give them one of Yours.
