Quilt Show Countdown.

We really are counting down now...as our quilt exhibition on March 15th and 16th gets closer and closer...this means we have plenty to do in the lead up to this exciting event....quilts have been arriving at Threadbear ready for the big weekend and we can only hope that everyone is as excited as we are about the quilt show, now less than two weeks away.

Corliss and Megan will both have new quilts to unveil on the weekend of the quilt show..here is just a tiny sneak peak at Megan's new quilt, "Elsternwick".

It is just enough of a peak to have us all busting with excitment and hanging out to see more.

We are always glad when we have this fantastic Quiltmania book back in stock....if you haven't  seen this wonderful book " Daily Quilt" by Yoko Saito yet we just take a look.

It is an absolute gem of a book with tons of small projects and several larger quilt patterns, all in true Yoko Saito style.  The projects in this book are just gorgeous.

The text in this book is in French but the instructions and the measurements are so clear that the French text is no barrier to making some, or all of the 101 projects in the book.

We are also very pleased to receive our second delivery of Michelle Yeo's new book, "Of Needle, Thimble and Thread"...our first delivery sold out so quickly....we have more in stock now so just let us know if you would like a copy. Congratulations Michelle on the success of your beautiful book.

It is not all glamour life style here at Threadbear, we still have to do our housekeeping chores and we just caught Megan doing the vacuumning to make sure everything is spic and span in the shop.

 Hard at work as you can see.

We have a second round of "Mountmelick" Block of the Month parcels to prepare and send out this week.  That is such great news for everyone on the waiting list and it means that everyone that wanted to join in now has a place for Di Ford's gorgeous quilt.

 Good news for everyone, bad news for Sammy, nearly drowning in fabric....on no...not more folding.

And just a reminder that next weekend is a long weekend in Victoria and Threadbear  will be open as usual on Saturday and Sunday but closed on Monday March 10th, for the Labour Day Holiday.
