Quote of the week:

Good friends are like Quilts. They age with you, yet never lose their warmth.

The Quilted Crow warmly welcomes you to our very first blog!! This is a new venture for both of us and we hope that it will enable you to keep up to date with what is going on in the shop on a regular basis

For those of you who aren't familiar with The Quilted Crow (233-235 Liverpool Street, Hobart, Tasmania, Australia), we have been in this current building for twelve months now. We just love our shop and the way we have decorated it - we are lucky enough to have three different rooms, which gives us the opportunity to go with a theme in each. Our first love is reproduction and upon entering the shop we hope that you will be overwhelmed by the vast array of the latest fabrics on offer. We have lots of samples made up to showcase them and each one is available in kit form as well as being available to make in a class.

Our next room houses our 1930's and vintage style fabrics (Freshcut & Katie Jump Rope) as well as our soft and pretties - again, lots of samples to see.

Our third room has warm country coloured cotton fabrics, as well as our next great love, 100% felted wool in the most luscious of colours and also in the Aunt Grace range which is a mix of 70% wool/30% poly. We love to work with the wool - applique can be done with a raw edge and the results are great. Also in this room is our range of punchneedle patterns and supplies - a must see!! Throughout all three rooms we have books, patterns and other notions to compliment the theme of each room.

For this week only, ending on Saturday 30th June we are offering a 10% discount on everything in the shop, with some fabrics marked down to $5, $10 or $15 ! If you spend over $100, you'll not only receive one of our personalised Quilted Crow calico bags to take home your goodies, but you will go into the draw to win a bundle of fabric to the value of $100 - not bad hey! And . . . if you like a bit of party food, make sure you drop in on the Saturday for cake and chocoate crackles!!

We like people to feel welcome when they come into the shop - treat it a bit like home and help themselves to a cuppa, catch up on some news as well as mingle with others . . . we hope that you will check back often to see what we are up to, or if you're in town, drop by and see us!!

So until next time, keep well,

Leonie & Deirdre
