The year is quickly coming to an end, but we still have exciting things happening at Quilters Harvest. Check it all out in the November Newsletter.
We have had a very busy time recently at Quilters Harvest. Springtime has certainly encouraged our ladies to get busy with their new projects. After our Saturday Stitching Retreat we arranged for Leonie Bateman to stay and conduct a wool applique class. It was very popular & the ladies loved working with the beautiful woven felted wool. Leonie shared her technique & tips for working with wool. We have the wool in stock, as well as many patterns. Call into to see this exciting new product.
It felt more like Summer as the ladies arrived for our Annual Stitching weekend. Leonie of Leonie Bateman Designs, Shelly Kelly & Marg Low were our talented tutors this year. They had designed a very diverse range of projects for the ladies to try on the day. Goodie bags were full of exciting things, including 3 complete kits & 8 patterns to chose from for their day of stitching. The hardest thing was to decide which project to try first. We had ladies from Brisbane, Horsham, Mildura, Stawell, Ballarat & many places in between. Many enjoyed meeting up with other stitching friends they have made over the years. The day was filled with lots of chatter, laughter, stitching & some shopping. We love organising this weekend & seeing the ladies enjoying their day.
What a great time the ladies had last weekend at the Winter Workshops. Our talented tutors Zoe & Gail expertly took the ladies through the techniques of template piecing & needle turn applique. It was a very cold weekend so, perfect weather for sitting & sewing. This year we chose the local Neighborhood House facility as our location, which proved to be perfect. Keep posted to see the progress of some of the projects.
