Welcome to my new blog...

Hello and welcome to my new blog. The time has finally come for me to branch out into new technology - well, new for me, anyway! So here goes....

There has been a lot of activity here at the shop lately; we have been preparing for some interstate and local Melbourne shows, planning special activities here in store and getting this months mailout of the Fabric Samplings Club ready for posting. 

Loads of cutting, collating and packaging, turning piles of fabric into lovely parcels ready for the postman to deliver. I thought you might like a sneak peak of whats coming this week. It takes a little while to organise and we are always pleased when its finished!

Step 1 - Piles and piles of fabric ready to be packaged...

Step 2 - All ready for processing....

Step 3 - All done, now off to the Post Office with it!

This weekend we are hosting a special guest artist ...... Sue Daley is coming to town! 
Sue will be presenting a trunk show this Friday evening with lots of projects and quilts from her newly released book. 
There are still a few spaces available if you would like to join us.

A little bird told me that there will be some new fabric arriving on Monday or Tuesday this week, this space!

Happy stitching, Karen

  2. Looking forward to wonderful things from your blog Karen. Thank you for all the delicious food and for an enjoyable and very informative sewing day today.

  4. Welcome to blogland Karen. I am sure you will enjoy blogging as much as I do, seeing all inspiring works and "meeting" wonderful like minded people.

  5. Looking forward to hearing what is going on in the shop. I wish I lived in Melbourne to visit more often although I don't think my credit card could stand it!! It is still recovering from the Sydney Quilt Show and the Newcastle Craft Show!
