Millefiori Mania.

We have all gone Millefiori mad.  If you loved Willyne Hammerstein's first book, "Millefiori Quilts" and you love some fussy cutting fun, well you will go completely nuts for "Millefiori Quilts 2".
Quiltmania has done it again with another beautiful book.

"Millefiori Quilts 2" gives us 17  more stunning, amazing projects from Willyne, all of them gorgeous and all of them tempting us to fussy cut to our hearts content.  "Millefiori Quilts 2 " is $72.00 and it is selling fast so call us at the shop if you would like a copy.

And as if that gorgeous book is not enough for one day we have another wonderful Quiltmania publication, " Of Cloth and Thread, pieces of the Past" by Kaye England.

This is such a pretty book, there are photos of some of Kaye's stunning quilts in and around her house and she treats us to amazing photos of some of the antique quits from her incredible collection...and then, 12 great projects for us to drool over.  This book is also $72.00 and you can call us at the shop if you would like a copy of this gorgeous book.

We had a lovely day last Friday with a fun group of girls, Sue, Carol, Sharon and Sharon, all the way from Nowra in NSW.  They spent the day in our classroom, sewing chatting and having was great to have them visit for the day and we loved meeting them all.

This group of friends are all sewing Megan's gorgeous quilt "The Mary Stubbs Quilt" and Megan is pictured with Sue, a very special member of the group.  Worthy of a photo with Megan for sure, as Sue's full name is Mrs Stubbs.

Sammy is very pleased with himself and you can see his wagging tail....he is helping in the shop and he has located a fabric just perfect for fussy cutting and broderie surely is Sammy's recommendation of the week.

Have a great weekend everyone, and remember, the weekend is all about sewing dishes and no housework.
