March: holidays are over, schools are open again (yes!) and life is back to normal.
Thanks to everyone who gave me good tips on my new iron. I am now watching the sales, waiting for that bargain.
I am still in scrappy quilts mode. I am playing this little game that I am not allowed to touch the basket with that lovely fabric in it until I have cleared out 3 more baskets! It’s amazing how easy it is to put fat quarters together for a backing, though that could be called cheating :-).
I thought I would do a good March stocktake special on my charms (though Donna and I still had to count them). This will give me a good excuse to buy some different ones. It’s a really good special – 75% off!
And there is a nice little video on how to quickly put a quilt top together.
Enjoy the last of summer. Okay, I know we are officially in Autumn, but that is too sad. I prefer to think we have another month of summer left.
18 different Charms, 75% off. Those that were $2 are now 50c and the $1 charms are now only 25c. We have limited stock so once they are gone that’s it.
Here is a new video on how to easily put a quilt top together.
This is a very short video showing how to use masking tape to help put a quilt top together. It makes it heaps quicker to put together and stitch. Read the blog and watch the video.
Introducing The Ranui Quilters. Jennifer and I spent a lovely morning with these ladies, a great bunch of quilters. I promised them that I would tell everyone about their quilt show on June 18th and 19th, 10am to 4pm. It is at their community centre at the corner of Swanson Road and Ranui Station Road out West. Parking in front or in the street, and in their words “Beautiful quilts, Delicious food, Raffle and a merchant.”
I can vouch for the food! Quilters please put this in your diaries and support them.
A reminder about our teapots and teacups set. Teapots, teacups, milk jugs and even cup cakes.
The set is $49, check it out here.
Our March newsletter list prize of a $30 voucher for our products went to Lorene. Congratulations! Forward this newsletter to a friend, so they can join and be in to win too.
A fat quarter has fewer calories than a large piece of chocolate cake!
(That’s as good an excuse as any!)
