How beautiful is the rain! We managed to get our new Tilda Ranges from the courier before the rain settled in this afternoon. Couldn't have wet Tilda Fabric!! Our Tilda books arrived also along with some beautiful Kona Solids. You can imagine Kerry had heaps of fun in the shop this afternoon. CLASSES: we have finally sorted out a sort of calendar for classes but of cause we are open to changes and ideas. Every 2nd Tuesday of the month (being the 13th and 27th Jan) Kerry is teaching appliqué techniques by Paula Storm. $25 for the morning. 9:30 am - 12:30pm. Morning tea supplied. Every Wednesday nights we have UFO nights from 6:00 to 9:00pm for $20. Kerry or Marci will be there to assist. Every 2nd Thursday of the month (being the 15th and 29th Jan) we have a beginners morning with Kerry. We r also happy for other ladies to use this morning as a sit n sew if they like. $25 for the beginners class and $20 for the sit n sew. morning tea is supplied. Then we have workshops twice a month on the weekends. Merina and Kerry will be holding these classes. We shall vary the style of classes for all. Only 8 ladies at the workshops though. This way we are not over crowded. Shall post the workshop details as they become available. Cheers and happy sewing.
More exciting news!! Kerry held her first class today. Every second Tuesday Kerry is holding a morning class in needle turn. We had seven lovely ladies attend today and they had a wonderful morning. They learnt the Paula Storm technique today. I will attach photos of their work. This Thursday we have four ladies attending for a beginners class. 9:30am - 12:30pm. $25.00 for the class. The ladies will be learning from the basics how to cut and make a patchwork tablerunner. We also have room for sew n chat on Thursdays 9:30am - 12:30pm $15.00. Vacancy for four more ladies, with this group working amongst themselves whilst Kerry teaches the beginners till 12:30. Let us know if u are interested.

Finally, we shall be doing workshops once a month on a weekend. Our first one is already booked out with the Australia Day Quilt, this Saturday. We have 10 ladies confirmed for this workshop which is excellent. We shall constantly update Facebook with classes n workshops.
Happy New Year to all. 🎉Hope 2015 is a healthy n prosperous year for everyone🌼. We had a very short drop of rain this morning which was wonderful but we do need a lot more. Well, the studio is finally finished and I am very happy with the way it has finished. I am going to christen it tomorrow,myself, with a day in the studio sewing. Something I have not done for a long time. Am very excited. Today I hope to finish organizing the shop with our Tilda area - even though we r still waiting on our Tilda products - at least we are ready when they arrive!!! Can't wait for open shop on Monday as it seems ages since we have been open. Must/ still is a good break. Need to sort out a good sale for The New Year Specials as I am sure u would all love some bargains. Have a great few days off n c u all on Monday. Happy sewing.
Hope everyone has had a very Merry Christmas n a relaxing Boxing Day. Now we have to get over New Years Eve. Make sure u have a memorable one. The shop is closed now till 5th January 2015. We r busy getting "the old studio" into shape as our new Workshop Studio. The first workshop being held on the 17th Jan. therefore Tony n I are rearranging heaps but it is so enjoyable resurrecting the old studio as it has also been such a happy place. Picking up another timber table tomorrow afternoon for another sewing table. Shall post pics later of the progression. Enjoy everyone. Cheers Marci

Who Stole Our Xmas Decs from the garden? Pretty sad when we can't even leave a few solar Xmas lights in the garden at the shop. Anyway we hope the people/person who stole them enjoy them as they did bring smiles to our faces. Merry Christmas and happy sewing.
