Quote of the week:
What I make with my hands, I give with my heart . . .
What a busy couple of days we have had here at The Quilted Crow since our last posting. Lots of new fabric has arrived including Rocky Mountain II, Spirit of the Season II and Sturbridge Village Blues II, all by our much loved Judie Rothermel for Marcus Brothers. She outdoes herself each and every time. We've popped in a couple of photo's of her new ranges just to give you an idea of what they look like. At the moment our website is being updated and once completed you will be able to view them all and place orders if you wish.
Also new in is the range by Denyse Schmidt "Katie Jump Rope", a fantastic retro 50's range that is all the go now. Lots of geometrics and florals in blues, greens, browns, oranges and yellows - very groovy!! Look for our project made up in these fabrics on http://www.iquilt.com/. an online quilting magazine which is a new adventure for Karen Fail and business partner, Nora Buckley.
Classes are now back in full swing after having a bit of a break - if you are interested in receiving a class list email us at thequiltedcrow@dodo.com.au and we'll get one to you.
Our big news is that we have just purchased an A1 Quilting Machine direct from the States - Tracy Browning from Constantine Quilts is here installing it as we speak, along with her ever patient husband Paul and son Nicholas! We plan to spend a late night here getting it up and running and Tracy will run us through all the troubleshooting stuff that we have to know on Saturday, then off we go!!
We'll be spending a lot of time getting everything down pat until we can start taking quilts on consignment but will advise you when this happens.
