Girls in Stitches...
Scrapbook Girls....

Retreat report.............

What a wonderful day we had. Our 3 delightful tutors were inspiring, the weather was perfect, the food scrumptious, an enthusiastic group of patchworkers & Collingwood won the AFL grandfinal replay. We hope all the girls enjoyed our 4th retreat as much as we did, & that those who travelled, arrived home safely. Natalie, Melly & Gail all worked so hard as they moved from table to table to pass on their knowledge, expertise & words of encouragement. No matter how long we have been enjoying our passion for patchwork we can always learn something & I'm sure yesterday was no exception.

Tutors 2
Melly, Natalie & Gail looking happy after a very busy day. Thanks girls for coming to the country. We really appreciate it.


Gail is sharing her applique technique. Gail was in demand all day showing the finer points of applique. Many girls benefited from her enthusiasm to share her knowledge. In fact I'm not sure that she stopped for lunch. Hope she didn't miss out on the beautiful frittata & the amazing lemon tart.

 Marge & Olinda from Hopetoun getting some help from Natalie. We were in awe of her beautiful stitching.

Melly too, does beautiful stitching so she was giving tips on satin stitch. We were also very lucky to see some of her new fabric range. In fact it was so popular we sold out. But don't be dismayed, they will be back in the store soon. Congratulations Melly. 

Deb & Kath
Camera shy Deb from Shepparton & Kath from Seymour were busy stitching. We were amazed that girls had travelled from places as far away as Adelaide, Waikerie, Mildura & many other places.

Some of the girls came showing their football allegiance. I know these 2 girls went home very happy & so did I. Hope you all had a great time & we hope to start organising next years retreat soon.

Thanks Quilter's Harvest for a great day! Melly, Nat and Gail were wonderful, and very helpful in sharing their ideas. I can assure you that Gail did get to devour the delicious lemon tart - what girl in her right mind can resist a tart? We attempted talking, eating and stitching all at once...
Looking forward to hearing plans for 2011.
