Open night success!

A big thank you to all that came to our open night on Monday, we had a wonderful night meeting many new people and old friends again. The night was a great success!

On a different note, we only have 3 weeks to Christmas, so if you need a gift or a project to do over the summer, come in and see us, we still have plenty of giftware and wonderful kits on the shelves. We have new stock arriving daily so it pays to check in and see what is in store, you never know what you may find!

Until next time,

Happy sewing,

Kelly & Julie.

Open night

Hi everyone, its been awhile since our last blog, but the shop has been extra busy with Christmas almost here. There are many new faces arriving to see our Christmas stock so we decided to hold an open night. We will be opening our doors on Monday 2nd of December (this Monday) from 5-30 to 8pm. We are having 25% off all of our fabric, patterns and kits (not including those already on sale). So if you are looking for more fabric to add to your stash, a new project to do, or a Christmas gift or two, Monday could be a great night to find them!

Hope to see you there,

Kelly & Julie.

Thanks…

Autumn Newsletter 2013

Autumn Newsletter 2013

Hi,

Sorry ladies it has been awhile since we have written a newsletter, we have been busy stocktaking and unpacking boxes of new products to put on the shelves. So if you haven’t been into the shop for a while do come in and have a look at all the new fabrics that have been coming in. They are all beautiful and waiting to be put into a lovely quilt.

Julie and I have been busy these last few weeks putting together our next BOM, Cinderberry’s ‘Tail feathers’, a lovely quilt featuring stitchery’s of birds, with a small amount of appliqué. We have chosen a fabric range called sentiments by 3 sisters. We hope to have it sewn up soon. Below is a sneak peak at the centre block, it’s just lovely! Places will be limited so if you are interested give us a call.

We have also been finalising our winter class list as well. We plan to do a needle case by ‘the Birdhouse’ (see photo below), which can be made into any fabric choice you like, we have used brown and blue to go with the colours of the stitchery. This class is scheduled to run on June 20th and 27th, again if you are interested give us a call as places will be limited. We also have two projects by House on the Hill planned, the ‘Tea garden’ wall hanging and ‘Days in Provence’ a small patchwork and stitchery quilt; these will be run in July and August. Plus we have our regular stitch n’ sew classes running every Friday morning 10-12 (in term time), the cost is $5 per class and bookings are required as we have limited classroom space. All of these classes with photos will be up on our blog site soon.

As I mentioned before we have had a lot of new fabrics come in over the last month and some exciting new projects that we are working on in the studio. So it’s going to be a busy winter. So with this in mind we have decided to hold an open evening on Monday 17th June between 7-9pm. Everyone is welcome and we are offering 15% off all our fabrics and patterns on that night, so come in and stock up for winter.

Well that’s about all we have time for now, I’m sure I’ve missed out plenty, so do come in and see us soon. We are sure to have a suitable project or two to keep you busy over the winter.

Happy sewing and stitching

Kelly & Julie.
