Bags, Bags, Bags.

Thank you to everyone that joined us on Saturday for the April meeting of the Castlemaine Appliqué Group...as always it was a great day.

A huge thank you to Mandy for bringing along this drop dead gorgeous quilt for Show and Tell...Mandy's quilt is jaw droppingly stunning and we are so grateful that she allowed us to take some pics to share with you.  Mandy has made this beautiful quilt from Robyn Falloon's amazing "Pas de Deux" pattern....and just look at the result, all reverse appliqué with perfect hidden stitches and then finished with perfect hand quilting...we were all taken away with the beauty of Mandy's quilt.


Our last order of Japanese Patchwork Tsushin magazines disappeared in a snap because they had lots of great bags and small projects in them so we thought it would be a good time to tell you that we have some back issues of this fantastic magazine on sale for $20.00 per copy.  As we always say, the fact that they are written in Japanese is no barrier to enjoying these great magazines and the instructions are very clear, well illustrated, and easy to follow.
Each issue has a great combination of inspirational quilts, lots of cute small projects and those fabulous bag patterns we love so much. Just call us at the shop if you are interested in any of these great Japanese magazines at a great price.

We have a sneak peak from a few of these issues....issue no 147
And issue no. 148
Issue no. 149
Issue no.164
And issue no. 172

As usual Sammy had a brilliant time at CAG...he just loves catching up with all his CAG friends and says thank you for all the pats....all the fun of CAG seems to have given Sammy an appetite...is Annabelle giving Sammy a cuddle...or holding him back from the sandwiches.
