Marg Low's Classes

We had a lovely two days with Marg Low as our guest. Friday and Saturday classes were enjoyed by all, Im sure. Marg showed us her samples with her Trunk Show in the morning followed by a pattern buying frenzy. All of us promising to make at least one Xmas project before Xmas!! (we are lucky because somehow there is always another Xmas next year! lol) Here are Rhonda, Shontelle, Vicki, Marg, Kris, Prue and Joanna all hard @ work... All the girls on both days had delicious lunches @ the Lobethal Bakery (next door) which they deserved because their decorated journals were all finished by the end of the day.
Sorry to Yvonne, Nell, Jean, Christine, Jessica, Tracey and tired Cindy (who just did a night shift..) I didn't take a picture on Saturday but you did a wonderful job too.
Here is block 2 for our 'Club Rouge' in gorgeous repro. fabrics.

Have so much on this week including getting my pallet delivered for AQC in Melbourne.

Marg Low Class

Just a reminder. Marg Low from NSW is coming this week - Friday and Saturday for a one day 'class'. I still have 1-2 spots a push for both days. Marg will show you her trunk show in the morning and in the afternoon, you will make one of these delightful journals.
Marg has a brilliant trunk show... which is a 'show and tell' with samples of her patterns... we will of course have the patterns for sale too. She is also a knowledgable and generous teacher. Marg has been here a few times now and has always been well received and enjoyed.
(her journal samples are here - in store for your viewing)

We are Open Easter Saturday

We have had some fabrics arrive recently I haven't told you about. The gorgeous 'Rural Jardin' being just one. This is my only pic (from French General), sorry this is all the plaids, we have the prints. We also have more Moda being 'Garden Party' by Blackbird designs, 'Verna', 'Bar Harbor' and 'Looking Back' as well as 'Nicey Jane' by Heather Bailey. Lots of pre-cuts. My favourite, 'Lumiere de Noel'. Red and taupe by French General. Being a red lover I do favour this over 'Rural Jardin' which has alot of French blue. Still lovely though. More pre-cuts of 'Fresh Cottons' and 'Whimsy' by Fig Tree and 'A Breath of Avignon' by American Jane as well as the ranges above.

Our Marg Low class is almost full. We have a couple spaces left for the Friday (16 April). Saturday is full. We are making Decorated Journals after Marg's Trunk Show. It proves to be a full day of inspiration with a lovely lady. I have the samples in store for you to see.

I wish you all a Happy Easter. I hope you get alot of sewing done over the long weekend.

Maybe a new cushion (as above using 'Flora and Fauna' by Patty Young) or what about spoiling yourself with a new range of fabric by the bundle! the Whimsy Bundle.

I will be open on Easter Saturday 10am - 5pm. Closed Good Friday and the usual days, Sunday and Monday.

I hope to be doing lots of cuddling with our new Jemima although I have a couple quilts to finish..Jane **
