Threadbear Welcomes Petra Prins.

We are all very excited and looking forward to a weekend of the very best is time for Appliqué School, with teachers Di ford and Margaret McDonald.

We have classes on both Saturday and Sunday but if you are free on Saturday and would like to join in the fun at very short notice we have TWO seats available due to a last minute is $125.00 for the day and that includes lunch and morning and afternoon tea...not to mention a great goody bag full of fabric and other treats...and of course all the tips from teachers Di Ford and Margaret McDonald.  Just call us at the shop..54721881...if you would like to join us for all the fun......there are two seats available so grab a sewing friend and give us a call. if Appliqué school isn't enough excitment for one week end we also have a very special visitor to Threadbear this weekend.

Our wonderful friend Petra Prins, quilt designer, fabric designer and author of two fantastic Quiltmania books, "Treasures from Holland" and the much loved "Promenade in a Dutch Garden"' will be spending Saturday with us.

Petra will be in the shop on Saturday between 1.00 and 3.00 pm.  We would love to welcome everyone to the shop to say hello to Petra...if you have one of Petra's books bring it with you and Petra will be happy to sign it for you and if you have made any of Petra's projects she would love to see some "show and tell"...everyone is welcome.

We would like to send huge congratulations to another great friend to Threadbear, Michelle Yeo on the release of her book "Of Needle, Thimble and Thread".  Michelle's book is the newest Quiltmania publication and we expect our delivery next week, so if you would like to pre-order a copy just email us at the shop and we will reserve a copy for you....we can hardly wait to get our hands on Michelle's book...we know already that it is going to be another must have.

We guess that too much Judie Rothemel is never enough because this is the second stunning range of Judie's to be delivered this week.  "Inkwell" from Judie Rothermel is 20 gorgeous reds, blacks and ivorys.

This range is full of great prints..and just look at the 1/8 packs, 20 fat 1/8s for $60.00...oooohh they are delicious.

All that is left is to wish everyone a wonderful weekend...hope every one has lots of sewing time and we also hope to see lots of you at the shop for a chat with Petra.

As you can imagine, this will be a huge weekend end for Sammy....he will be ready and waiting to welcome you all....he knows there will be lots of pats and hugs.....but first he needs a serious dog snooze...Happy Valentines Day and happy sewing to all.
