Our Applique Group and exhibition preparations

Threadbear's Applique Group met here in Castlemaine once again last Saturday and what a fabulous day we all had.  There was such a warm friendly vibe in the room and lots of discussion about our preparations for our second Exhibition coming up on 12th& 13th March 2016.  For details, contact us at the shop.   It was great to see so many new faces in the room too as the group continues to grow.  We always welcome new members - just email Threadbear to join the Group's email list.  Meanwhile, here's sample of Saturday's Show and Tell.

Corliss' newest quilt,  Celebrating Mary Brown, is getting closer to being finished and it's going to be a stunner when it's all put together.  Meantime, here is the 6th in a series of 10 of Corliss' favourite blocks from her quilt.   This Cornucopia block pattern is available from today.  You'll find the Celebrating Mary Brown block patterns here on our website.

Spring has well and truly sprung here in Castlemaine and the courtyard at Threadbear is looking beautiful, with the wisteria, banksia rose and flowering cherry all smelling delicious as we brush past.  And plenty of bees buzzing around for Sammy to try and catch!
Have a great weekend everyone!
