Come and Have A Cuppa.

Our sale started yesterday and we had a wonderful day in the shop meeting lots of fantastic ladies...some had travelled from NSW and Queensland to join us and it was great to meet people and put some faces to names.  We have tea and coffee at the ready in the classroom and delicious biscuits if you need an extra sugar hit....Sammy was so happy to have visitors come and join him for a chat and a cuppa.
We are having a great time with our spot prizes, if a bell rings when you are being served you get to choose something from Sammy's special box of goodies and there are some really great things to choose from, books, patterns and fabric packs and lots of other bits and pieces.

We loved meeting the happiest bunch of girlfriends all the way from Queensland, just off the plane and into Threadbear for some fun...we laughed and giggled the whole time and just loved seeing all their beautiful fabric choices...thanks for such a fun visit, we hope you have a fantastic girly weekend in Melbourne.

Ooooh we have such amazing show and tell for you today...thank you so very much for sharing your amazing work to inspire us all...

We simply fell in love with Sharon Ghalayini's English Baskets Quilt....there were gasps all around as we looked at the stunning colours and pretty, pretty flowers in Sharon's blocks and we are all looking forward to seeing more of this great quilt as work progresses.

And look at these hexagons, good grief....Lisa from Hay in NSW is the owner of this stunner with all those tiny little hexagons...Lisa your quilt is just beautiful...the colours are fantastic and it is real joy to look at...this is the type of inspiration that just makes you want to go straight home and house work...just sew.

We even have some new fabric in the shop today..."Lydia" circa 1875  by Mary Koval...Wow...what can we say about this look and we are itching to use all of the fabulous prints in this very tempting.

Our sale goes for three more days, as you can imagine that means Sammy is pretty excited...we all know how much he loves greeting friends to the shop....we are open till 5.00 today and 10.00 to 4.00 on Saturday and 11.00 to 4.00 on Sunday.  We would love to see everyone for a cuppa, a biscuit and maybe a great bargain.

Have a great weekend everyone...Sammy is here to help you with your shopping and maybe a pick from his special box of goodies.
