Home safe and sound

Today we are busy getting ready for tomorrow's meeting of the Castlemaine Appliqué Group.
Appliqué Group meetings are always a lot of fun, but that is because it is always good to get together
to sit and sew, eat yummy sandwiches and have a good old sticky beak at some show and tell.
Our guest speaker for the day will be Kerry Roe, speaking about Hawaiian appliqué, so we know already how inspired we are all going to be after hearing Kerry speak and seeing some of her wonderful quilts.

We have just received a second delivery of the popular book "layers", published by the Chester County Historical Society.
We have had this book once before but it sold in a snap, so if you would like to reserve a copy just email us or contact us at the shop.
It is great reference for lovers of  antique quilts, has great photos and is a really good read with lots of interesting little snippets and tales of quilt makers from days gone by.

At Threadbear today we are all very happy to welcome everyone home...welcome home to Corliss and Kurt, back safe and sound after their trip to the U.S.

Welcome home to Corliss's beautiful quilt, " A Tribute to Mrs. Williams". Corliss's quilt has been on display in Texas for six months now and it is so nice to have it back in the shop for us to enjoy.

And of course, a big welcome home to Sammy. It is wonderful to have Sammy back in the shop with us.  Sammy has been busy all morning greeting customers, so anyone coming to the shop this weekend is sure to get a fine welcome.

Have a wonderful weekend and happy sewing.
