Primarily Stunning

Wow, what a great week we have had a Threadbear this week.
Di Ford's book, Primarily Quilts has arrived at after box came through our door. Most of our copies are already pre-sold but we still have some copies left in the shop. If you have not already put your name down to reserve a copy of this amazing book, just contact us by phone or email & we will add your name to our list, but be quick because this book is going to walk out the door ~ although we'll have another shipment arriving soonish.

We all had plenty of work to get done this week but that was all put on hold as we tore open the first box and grabbed a copy each while discussing it on the phone with Di.

Primarily Quilts is a stunningly beautiful book, with page after page of the most mouth watering, drop dead gorgeous, inspirational quilts, beautifully printed with colour that will send you wild with delight. We are sure to run out of adjectives to describe this amazing book, it is truly beautiful and is sure to become a well loved addition to many sewing rooms and books shelves.

No sooner had we got over the excitement of the book delivery than it was action stations to send out copies to all of you on our waiting list.  Di made the drive down to Threadbear to sign books for mail delivery. It was so nice to have her in the shop to share in all the excitement.  There were many books to sign, lucky Sammy was on hand to help out.

If you are buying a copy of Di's book, or have already bought an unsigned copy and you would like to have it signed by Di in person, or maybe just congratulate her on this beautiful, amazing book, she will be at Threadbear on April 13th from 1:00pm.

Next week we will be busy in the shop again, as we get ready for our Appliqué school on April 6th.
The day is being held in the function room of the Castle Motel, walking distance from our shop and the sixty ladies attending are in for a really fantastic day. We have four teachers covering four different applique methods. Not only will we all learn lots of amazing new tricks to make our applique easier but there will be time for lots of fun as well.

Easter is upon us now and Threadbear will be closed on Good Friday and Easter Sunday.                   
All of us here at Threadbear wish you a very Happy Easter, filled with all the good things....Hot cross buns,chocolate and weather just perfect for sewing. And of course special Easter greetings from Sammy.
