Merry Christmas Everyone!

This is our last blog post for 2016 - and what a fabulous year it's been at Threadbear with our second Applique Group Exhibition, classes and workshops with Di Ford and Katrina Hadjimichel, new patterns and fabrics, and of course our monthly Applique Group and Passionate Piecers Group meetings.  We're all looking forward to some down-time over Christmas and New Year and will be back on deck to reopen Thursday 5th January 2017. 

There are now only 10 sleeps till Christmas!  If you still need a gift for someone special, including yourself, you have three shopping days left before we close for Christmas on Sunday 18 December, so don't delay!  And just to tempt you, take a look at these utterly beautiful Yuwa Live fabrics that arrived this morning.  Reminiscent of early 20th century eiderdowns, these delicate paisley prints are soft and romantic in pale pinks or duck-egg blue.

Yuwa Live paisleys $39.00m

 Our Castlemaine Applique Group had its Christmas meeting last Saturday and we all loved seeing the quilts of Wendy Blyth, our guest speaker.  Wendy is a prolific quilter, has been a very active member of Kilmore Quilters and Vic Quilters, and is always a regular at our meetings.  Here's just a smattering of her beautiful quilts.

We wish all our customers and friends a very safe and happy Christmas and New Year.  Thanks for tuning in each week and for all the lovely cards and festive greetings.  May we all find some rest and relaxation and sewing time over the holidays.  Merry Christmas Everyone !
