Very chintzy

All the talk at Threadbear this Friday is about tomorrow's meeting of the Castlemaine Appliqué Group..we can't wait.
We were to be joined by very special guests from Holland....Petra Prins, An Moonen and Nel  Kooimen, and we were so sad when the news came that they would be unable to make the trip to Australia. Petra was unable to travel due to the death of her Mother and An could not travel due to ill health...we wish An a speedy recovery and all at Threadbear send Petra our condolences and warmest wishes at this very sad time.  They will definitely be in all our thoughts at tomorrow.  We are so grateful to Petra & An for letting us have their amazing quilts for the day, it will be a huge treat to see these beautiful quilts & it promises to be a wonderful day.

Just look at all those bundles of Dutch Chintz, and lots of other goodies, gathered together as door prizes for tomorrow's meeting.

We had some Moda prints delivered yesterday, 8 fabrics from Minick & Simpson...Midwinter Reds.

 There are six pretty little blenders, all in reds, ivory and tans...with two larger prints, and they are very very nice.

We are very happy to have Brigette Giblin's beautiful book back in stock.

 "Feathering  the Nest with Vintage Inspired Quilts" is another gorgeous book from Quiltmania, full of such tempting projects that the "must do" list will grow each time you flick through the pages.

And just look at this gorgeous bag, "Aunt Roses Shopping Bag", made by Threadbears friend, Virginia Enright.

Spring is just the perfect time to make something as pretty as this bag...and you get to use some of your favorite scraps to make it.

Sammy would like to wish everyone a very happy weekend, and he hopes everyone has some time over the weekend to do what he has been doing today...Coffee with the Girls.
