Quote of the Week:
A bed without a quilt is like a sky without stars . . .
We have had a very busy week here at The Quilted Crow. Our new A1 Longarm Quilting Machine (who by the way we have named "Mal") is settling in nicely. We haven't had as much time with him as we would like, but we are getting along well. We are currently in the process of purchasing patterns, books, threads and all the other bits needed in order to run a longarm quilting business. It is all very exciting!
We have had a big movearound again in the shop - something we like to do often. One must have a good poke and look around to find all of our treasures that we have here. It makes for an interesting visit when you come in.
Bev has been working very hard on our website adding all of our new fabric ranges that have arrived, so make sure you take a look - I just need to get some new photos to her and it should all be done!
Our Christmas Gathering that we are holding on the 6th October is filling fast. For those of you who aren't familiar with our "Gatherings", we hold them twice a year - one in April which is called "An Autumn Gathering" and the other in October - "A Christmas Gathering".
This year at our "Christmas Gathering", our tutors will be Helen Stubbings from Hugs'n'Kisses (Tasmania), Belinda Merritt from Phoebe Rose (Victoria) and Michelle Vince (Tasmania). Each of the tutors will be designing two projects each, one with a Christmas theme, the other a general theme. Deirdre and myself will also be designing a couple of projects as well, so you will get all of these patterns in your 'goody' bag on the day, as well as a few other surprises too . . the cost for the day is $90 which includes your goody bag (with at least 10 patterns), morning & afternoon tea and lunch. There will be lots of giveaways on the day. We will have The Quilted Crow shop set up for anyone who is tempted to make some purchases! Give us a call at the shop if you are interested in joining us for a day of stitching and friendships, laughter and creativity.
Woops, there's the doorbell - we're off for now.
Until next time,
Leonie & Deirdre
