Sammy smells

It has been all fun and no photos at Threadbear this week. We had our Friday night 6.00 to midnight sewing group in last Friday for another night of great company, beautiful sewing and a heap of really yummy food....shame we were all having so much fun that we forgot to take any photos to share.

Then on Sunday we had our fussy cutting class with Di Ford.  Di is the all time inspiration Guru when it comes to fussy cutting and it was so good to see a class of happy sewers in the shop choosing fabrics with a new eye, all inspired to see the endless fussy cutting opportunities in a piece of fabric and at the ready with a nice sharp pair of scissors to cut holes all over it...great fun was had by all and once again we forgot to take even one snap of all that beautiful fabric being snipped.

We can however show you pics of the new fabric ranges delivered this week, another three ranges full of fabrics to tempt.  Townhouse Gardens by Paula Barnes, comprises 15 small to medium prints in a range of soft smokey colours..very nice.

Ashley from Windham has small florals, checks, stripes, and a beautiful all over floral in two colour ways.  Choose from a deep licorice green/black background or a deep beige background(pictured).
Gallery in Red from Marcus Fabrics is a really great collection of reds & blues, twelve in total and all crisp vivid colours & great prints...all of the fabrics in this range will be perfect problem solvers for quiltmakers with sons, nephews, or grandsons.

We are having a good time preparing for our Applique School on April 6th, cutting lots of fabric as we prepare all the kits participants will receive for their day in school.  The day is fully booked but if you would like to add your name and email address to our waiting list you will be the very first to know of any school days planned for the future.

Our sleepy little town is set to double in size for the next two weeks as it hosts the biannual Castlemaine State Festival. There are all manner of performances with something for everyone, young and old. The festival opens tonight with a big day planned for the first official day tomorrow, Saturday 16th March.  However, we won't have any time at all tomorrow to join the festivities as we will all be way too busy with needle and thread celebrating International Quilting Day! We hope you all find some time in your day tomorrow to celebrate with some sewing and absolutely NO housework.

We cant add any photos of Sammy to this post because he has been rolling in something disgusting and smells way too revolting to approach with a camera!
