Bally Hall and More!!

Loads of new fabrics arrived last week, but with all the preparations for a bumper crowd coming to our first Castlemaine Applique Group meeting for this year, we didn't get a blog post done to show you. But prepare to be wowed by some utterly gorgeous collections for your stash!
First up is Bally Hall from Di Ford-Hall.  It's here, it's gorgeous, and it's selling fast!  We're filling all our pre-orders, although we are waiting on our second delivery next week to complete them - so if you are waiting on your order, it will be on it's way very soon.  This collection is so pretty in stunning tones of green, teal, pink, gold, brown, and rich cream.  They sit perfectly with Di's Key West coordinates as well as her previous 2 ranges.  Congratulations Di, this really is something special.  You can find the full collection of Bally Hall here on our website.

Kathy Hall keeps producing such brilliant reproduction collections for us all to use, and once again her colours mix and match across the ranges so well.  Here are our picks from Little House on the Prairie ~ Mansfield  which features a striking border print with so many possibilities! We love the rich colours and detailed designs.

More new fabrics arrived in store today, so stay tuned. Last Saturday 75 lovely ladies came to Castlemaine for Threadbear's first meeting this year of our Applique Group.  We kicked off the Group's TENTH year with the very talented Margaret McDonald as our guest speaker.  Margaret is a prolific award winning quilter and treated us to "just some" of her applique quilts.  We don't have room to show you all of them here, but click this link to go straight to our Instagram page and you'll find loads of photos to inspire you. If you'd like to join Margaret for a class at Threadbear, checkout our class list here and you'll find all the details of the dates and projects available.
