Now, we would like everyone to meet Bernie and Joy, and then let us tell you the most amazing show and tell story. Bernie and Joy are great friends and sewing buddies....they had not done any needle turn appliqué before, but despite that minor detail they decided to take on The Civil War Bride......and just look at the result....
Bernie & Joy are an absolute inspiration, just 5 minutes in their company will have you beleiving you can do anything. And as if finishing The Civil War Bride as their first appliqué project is not amazing enough, they are now going to donate the quilt to their local quilting group to be raffled with all proceeds going to local charities.....what an amazing story.
Sammy is all ready for Australia Day Celebrations. Threadbear will be open on Saturday 25th and closed on Australia Day, Sunday 26th but open again on Monday for the Australia Day Holiday...we will be open from 11.00 to 4.00 on Monday, so if you find yourself with some time to spare on the public holiday we would love to see you at Threadbear for a catch up.
We hope you all have a wonderful long weekend...Lamingtons and barbecues and back yard cricket are fine but it is 3 whole days of sewing that that we love. Have a great weekend everyone.
