We Love Visitors

Hi Everyone, we hope you all had a wonderful break over Easter, and just a reminder that Threadbear will be closed again this coming Friday, April 25th, for Anzac Day.

We have a new quilt visiting Threadbear this week.  "Charlotte" is a new pattern from Wattlebird Designs and we are lucky enough to have the quilt hanging in the shop for us to enjoy...patterns are not on the website yet but they are $30.00 and you can call or email us if your fingers are itching to start a new project.

"Show and Tell" is always exciting,  we love it when we see a quilt come through the door, all ready for us to have a sticky beak at...so, thanks to Karin for sharing her very sophisticated eye spy quilt, made for her Grandson...Karin has designed this quilt with lots and lots of  great images that will keep her grandson entertained for hours...plus it it such a happy colourful quilt.

And just look at this absolutely stunning quilt, made by Robyn...we have enjoyed Robyn's visits to the shop as she has collected all the fabrics she used for her "Civil War Sampler", made from Barbara Brackman's fantastic book.  Robyn has put so much care into choosing all her fabrics and we bet you will all love the result as much as we do.....Robyn thank you for sharing, your quilt is just beautiful.

We still have Barbara Brackman's book, "Civil War Sampler" in stock if you have been inspired by Robyn's quilt.  It is a great book, with patterns for 50 blocks and lots of great stories from the Civil War.

Have you ever been half way through a quilt and just wished you had a design wall so you could stand back and see your work in progress.....well look at this great fabric we have so that we can all have our very own design wall....this fabric is flannel so  blocks will stick well as you stand back to admire your work, it has a handy grid print and is a good neutral colour.... at $24.00 mt is is a great affordable way to have a handy design wall and easy to store if you don't have room to leave it hanging.

We just want to say hello to Margaret and Sofia who came all the way from Brisbane for a visit...they wanted a photo to show all their sewing friends they had been to Threadbear...so here is the proof...thanks for visiting us, hope we see you on your next visit.

We have just received  two new copies of  Japan's famous patchwork magazine "Patchwork Tsushin". Both editions have lots of small projects including some really cute bags to make.

Well it looks like Sammy is checking out the diary to see what we have coming up.

We are closed this Friday, April 25th for Anzac Day but what is has really caught Sammy's attention is the meeting of the Castlemaine Appliqué Group this coming Saturday....we love CAG meetings as they are always such fun days but to Sammy it just means pats, and plenty of them.
