Winter/Spring 08

Winter is here again, giving us lovely long evenings & cold days which invite us to spend some time near the fire doing some stitching.              

Thank you to those who supported our 5th Birthday celebrations and The Biggest Morning Tea.  Shirley cleaned her family silverware especially for the beautiful morning tea.  The raffle quilt will be drawn later in the month & the proceeds added to our Morning Tea donations.          

Our weekend at Glenwillan was a great success with most of the girls finishing some unfinished projects.  In fact they had such a good time they have organized another weekend later in July.  If you would like to join them, please let us know.          After the success of last years Memory Lane Sewing Day, we have planned another day for this year.  It will be on October 4th.    The venue, caterer & tutors have all been finalized and we are looking forward to another great day.              We have changed the venue to the beautiful well lit rooms of the Warracknabeal Race Course.  Numbers are limited, so register your interest as soon as possible.                     

We are about to launch into the amazing world of BLOG.          Quilters Harvest can now be found on "Typepad".       Just log onto www.quiltersharvest.typepad.com  and you will be able to keep up with all our latest news.  We are still learning how it all works, so please be patient.

Glenwillan Sleepover.

Arrived home Sunday afternoon, after a great weekend with 6 girls from Melbourne. Di, Leanne, Laurene, Claire, Jillian & Tracey all traveled up from Melb. on Friday for a visit to the country. They called into Quilters Harvest for a browse & of course a visit to Warracknabeal is not complete without visiting the infamous Warehouse in search of treasures from bygone days. Di was so excited about her amazing find of an antique Singer sewing machine for $20.00. She could not believe her luck. Then it was off to the beautiful Glenwillan Homestead for 2 nights, joined by our friend & part time assistant Donna, Joanna from Adelaide & us. A few wines, tea & then some stitching followed in front of the open fire. Some of the girls were on a mission to get as much sewing done as possible & then there were some who came for some R & R. A few of us were anxious to see the progress of the interesting Dahlia Quilt. Tea on Saturday night was at the local award winning Restaurant "Rusty Nail". The girls were fascinated by the original stables & displays of old farming equipment. A lot of patchwork ideas were photographed of the magnificent tiled verandas, plaster cornices & old linoleum flooring. We all had a great time & look forward to their next visit.

Here is a photo of our Dahlia quilt as far as we got.



Scrapbook classes are run each Wednesday at 10.00 - 12.00 noon.  They cater for all levels.  From Beginners to more experienced.

The classes are not too structured, where I'm happy to help you with your own design or you can use a design from my many albums on display.

We have the new Cricut machine in store including a few cartridges and the new Design Studio.  You can come in on a Wednesday and l can help you use it or you can come in any time the shop is open and have a go yourself.

New supplies arrive almost weekly and we are so excited when we get a new box in the post.  It's just like Christmas.  If there is anything we don't have that you would like, we can do our best to source it for you.

We love to see our friends come in to show us their pages they have created.

If you are not busy on Wednesday's l'd love you to drop in and have a go.

Biggest Morning Tea

We had a great morning on Saturday 24th. May celebrating our 5th Birthday with lots of store wide specials & a Morning Tea for the Cancer Council. Shirley decided it was a good excuse to get out the beautiful family silverware to serve the morning tea. We also raffled a quilt which we had made, with proceeds going to the Cancer Council. The raffle will be drawn later in the month. Hopefully we will have lots of money to send to the Cancer Council for Research.
