Our Passionate Piecer's Group will meet again on Saturday 7th May and the booking email will be sent out to everyone in the group on Monday afternoon (Anzac Day) as usual. However, we won't be here to receive and reply to bookings until Tuesday Morning.
Well with no sign of the delivery man on the horizon, we don't have any brand new fabrics to show you this week. Di Ford Hall's new collection, Giggleswick Mill, is due any day and we can't wait for it to arrive. But in the meantime, we thought we'd show you some of the selections we put together for customers this week. We always encourage ladies to mix and match fabrics from different ranges and be guided by the colour and print rather than the manufacturer or designer. That way, your work will have a little more life and interest and keep the eye moving across the quilt.
The big news at Threadbear this week however, is what was waiting for Megan when she arrived home from work last night. Despite all the best laid plans, and a due date of Anzac Day, this little Cria arrived a couple of days early and was shivering in the rain when Megan got home. So like any good quilter, she used an off-cut of cotton wadding to wrap around the baby and covered her with a Glad bin liner! Not a great look, but little Poppy stayed warm all night. We are pleased to say Poppy will be wearing a proper Cria coat tonight!
Meanwhile, Sam is back home from his beach holiday and is settling back into his regular routine of sleeping, snoozing, and sleeping some more. Have a great weekend everyone!
