Can you imagine what fantastic days these will be!
Our class list for second semester classes is now on our website with details on our Applique School days, our October Applique Meeting and all the wonderful classes being offered over the next few months.

Just a quick show and tell today thanks to Rachel and Patty who are regulars at our Friday night sewing group...wow, do the ladies in your sewing group bring desserts like this to share..that looks so
delicious we thought it worthy of a photo.
Thanks also to Rachel for letting us snap her Friday night sewing project...Rachel is hand piecing Megan Carroll's pattern, "My Little Jane", and once again, wow Rachel, it is absolutely beautiful.

We have mentioned before how much we are looking forward to our next CAG(Castlemaine Appliqué Group) meeting, with our special guests, Petra Prins, Nel Kooiman and An Moonen.  Petra and An will be speaking to us about their book, "Promenade in a Dutch Garden", and we are now glad to also have  An Moonen's book, "A History of Dutch Quilts" back in stock in time for her visit to Castlemaine.

If you have not already seen this book you will fall in love with it the minute you catch a glimpse of it.

If you love quilt history it is a great read and it is packed full of the most beautiful full colour pictures of gorgeous Dutch quilts..an inspiration to be sure.
It is another fabulous Quiltmania publication, so as always, another beautifully printed treat for the eyes.
