NEW: French General is at Sawmillers

23 Sep

Hi Everyone
Sue & I had a great weekend at the Wairarapa Quilters Exhibition held last weekend, and despite the frightful weather and being unable to unpack the stock easily we soon got setup and were looked after very well by all the volunteers, great job everyone

The new French General which we debuted at the exhibition was very warmly received and now it is back in Sawmillers and on display, I have put the pictures of it here, they really don’t do it justice and I couldn’t decide which one to use, so used all the pictures I had, the latest colour is a beautiful melon/coral, I can here you saying ‘whaaat’ but it goes so well with the beautiful FG Red and I have been told it’s the best range, ever!

Come in and see for yourself, we have lots of metreage in the entire range and don’t forget we at Sawmillers got it first!

Have a great weekend

Last Chance for Pemberley

8 Sep

Hi Everyone

I am going to be ordering the Pemberley pattern on Monday 12th September & as we can only order minimums of 4 patterns at a time, it would be a good idea to get in now & place your order with us so you don’t miss out, remember this pattern can be paid for over an extended period of time providing we have the credit card details
Don’t miss the opportunity of getting this wonderful pattern & templates, below is Pemberley to remind you!

New Fabric & New Idea!

26 Aug

Hi Everyone
We really hoped you enjoyed the shop hop, it is an ideal way to get to see other shops in the Lower North Island & we really enjoyed meeting you all

Here are the latest Orientals to arrive at Sawmillers, we know there is a great following out there so we shall be increasing our stock as new fabrics are released

We were wondering if anyone is interested in making the ‘Pemberley’ quilt designed by Katrina Hadjimichael, there has been a great response to her recent visit to NZ, & we have been offered the pattern
We would like to start a Pemberley group, this would consist of meeting once every 4 – 6 weeks weeks probably on a Sunday morning for a few hours so that we can all discuss what fabrics we are going to use, various techniques and stitch, we are able to get the pattern kit which consists of

1 pkt            ½” Hexagon pre-cut papers and acrylic template
1 pkt            1” Jewel pre-cut papers and acrylic template
1 pkt            ¾” Circle pre-cut papers
1 pkt            4” Rounded Dresden pre-cut papers and acrylic template
1 pkt            1½” Chubby Dresden pre-cut papers and acrylic template
1 pkt            2” Half Circle pre-cut papers and acrylic template
1 pkt            Curved K.H Dresden pre-cut papers and acrylic template
1 pkt            Pointed K.H Dresden pre-cut papers and acrylic template

The total cost for the pattern kit is $206.99 & whilst I hear you all gasp, we don’t intend to start until February 2017 & we can arrange for the patterns to be paid off between now & then, which makes it more achievable, could be a present from the family for Christmas???
The patterns are available now & we would like to order as soon as possible to ensure we get the quantity  we want, if you would like to see more details of the ‘Pemberley’ quilt go to Katrina Hadjimichaels blog, I am sure some of you attended Katrinas’ class at Symposium & we had an example of one of her pupils work in the quilt festival this year
Have a good weekend

Decisions To Be Made

21 Jul

Hi Everyone

The time is drawing close when we have to close the registrations for the 2016 Quilters Friend Shop Hop, we have extended it to 29th July, to enable all those grandmas, aunties, and mums to register after they have been looking after the children during the holidays!!

This is a great fun way of seeing the other shops participating in the promotion, we are all different and the thing we love the most are being able to share and enjoy other quilters and their ideas

So as a reminder go through to the Facebook page of Quilters Friend Shop Hop to see what’s available and below is our offering too
So here are the rules, the registration is $45.00 for this you receive 15 Fat Eighths in total that is 3 in each participating shop of the project you selected to do, you also receive a free pattern of that same project and if you spend $11.00 in each shop you receive a 10% discount and your Shop Hop Passport is stamped, so that when you visit the final shop you hand in the stamped passport and this means your name goes into a draw for a $250.00 basket of ‘quilty’ goodies, so it’s easy and as we said great fun too
