Winter Workshop fun.......

Our 2016 Winter Workshops were great fun with talented tutors Michelle Yeo & Anita, demonstrating for Westalee Rulers. The girls in Michelle's class chose several different projects to work on, which created lots of interest during the day. We welcomed Michelle's talent & expertise & we look forward to seeing the finished projects.

Anita was kept busy for 2 days demonstrating & guiding the ladies through the use of the amazing Westalee rulers & machine quilting. Anita is an excellent tutor, who loves sharing her knowledge. It was so good to see our ladies excited to be going home to fine tune their quilting skills.

The day commences at 9.30am & you will be assured of a great day out, with traders, guest speakers, the usual show & tell & good country food.

Barb Smith, Winter Workshop tutor....

What a great diverse range of talent we have organised for our July Winter Workshops. As well as Michelle Yeo, we welcome Barb Smith who designs under the name of Theadora Cleave. We love the way Barb uses stamping stencils, stitching & buttons to embellish your work. This class will encourage you to let yourself get lost in the world of creativity with the help of Barb's ideas & techniques. A kit will be supplied for this class & is included in the cost. Don't forget the dates are July 9th & 10th.  Call us for more details of this class.

Class in Hopetoun......

The lovely ladies from the Hopetoun Patchwork Group have been working on the embroidery & clamshell part of their Two Fruit Tins for some time. I went up for a visit to the group to help them assemble their projects. It was a lot of fun & they were very happy to see the project finished at last. This delightful little container is designed by Hugs & Kisses & is perfect for holding all your marking tools etc.  Patterns & Kits are available from Quilters Harvest.

Natures Blessings......

We hope all you girls have finished the first beautiful stitchery in Gail Pan's Block of the Month "Natures Blessings" because the next one is on its way. These are such lovely detailed stitcheries that could be used in many different projects. Why not frame them & hang together as a group or make a carry bag or....... We still have a few spare kits if anyone would like to join in.

Autumn is off to a busy Start......

Friday girls

2016 is off & running at Quilters Harvest. We often find that it is rather quiet at the shop until after the long hot summer is over. Well Autumn is here & we are starting to make plans for the year ahead. Just to let you know a few things that we are planning. We have had lots of offers to visit Quilting groups for their exhibitions, our Winter Workshop tutors have all been booked, our Spring Stitching Retreat tutors are also finalized & our regular Sit & Sew days have all started again. Our regular Friday Girls Group met last Friday night & enjoyed their meal & some stitching. Today the Tuesday Sit & Sew group is very busy stitching & enjoying some fellowship. We welcome new comers to any of our group days. Call the shop for more details
