If you've visited us on the internet this week at threadbear.com.au, you'll have seen a few changes to our look and layout. We've undergone an upgrade so while everything should now be back in it's right place, you'll notice a few minor changes to the shopping cart. If you're unsure of anything, just give us a call at the shop.
With all the changes going on behind the website, we weren't able to bring you a blog post last week so we'll try to make up for it with lots of pictures from our Applique Group's show and tell last Saturday. It was another happy day of stitching and catching up. Jan brought along some of her antique quilts to show us, including a couple that were undergoing some rescue and repair work! This beautiful clamshell quilt was our favourite.

Elizabeth decided to turn her Phebe centre (above) into a sweet little quilt to hang on a wall. That's a great way to deal with projects you know you love but you know you'll never finish. (pattern by Di Ford-Hall)
Michelle made this applique beauty for a special gift for a family member - as soon as she's finished machine quilting it, she's giving it away!! Next up was Helen's work in progress (below). She started the centre at a class with Di Ford-Hall many moons ago... then she has been making up the borders as she goes. Those little star blocks are stunning Helen!
We always want to see what people in the room are working on...Deb showed us the centre of her BOM design by Susan Smith (above). The red toile centre and those soft colours are so gorgeous Deb.
New to our shelves today are 7 must have pieces from Southern Exposure by Laundry Basket Quilts. The border print is a show stopper and we have 6 other supporting fabrics in warm pink, cream, irky mustard and bold teal.
