Christmas in July.

10 Jul

Good Morning Everyone,

I know it is frightening to see Christmas fabrics in Sawmillers, but our theory is, that you must all be thinking of your Christmas projects and if we can go someway to inspiring you then that is what we are here for. The fabric pictured above are poinsettias in the centre in reds and greens and on either side are the golds on creams, above these is a delightful festive print of green holly and red berries on a black background, along with a stunning red with gold snowflakes and leaves,  these are by Hoffman and Makower, and available in fat quarters too.

This close up shot is also Makower and has a Florentine feel to it, it has been used in the table runner which is being made in the Beginners Class, all the Makower Christmas fabric range are co-ordinated so can be mixed and matched for your project, perhaps a lap quilt to drape over the sofa during the Christmas season, or a smaller project such as a wallhanging or table mats for Christmas dinners, they are really stunning and the clarity of the colours exceptional.We are intending to hold a Christmas Wreath class in August/September in which these fabrics can be utilised, contact Yvonne for details and registration.

Pictured here is a small selection of the Hoffman Christmas prints that have just arrived, these are a limited range so don’t take too long to before deciding as we are unable to guarantee re-orders, they too are available as fat quarters.

A note to those who visit us and also go over to Stonestead for Devonshire Teas, we now have quilting magazines over in the Tea House, so you can browse through them whilst relaxing over your tea and freshly baked scone, then if you become inspired you can come over to Sawmillers and select the fabrics for your project. What better way to spend a few hours away from the everyday chores that always need to be done.

Well, I shall finish this newsletter and try and complete the sample quilt for displaying at Sawmillers, before finishing though, I have to make mention that this newsletter is updated at least once sometimes twice a week, we don’t have a policy of informing everyone individually, except if there is new stock or interesting news, we don’t want to bombard our piecers, quilters stitchers etc. with emails, as we feel everyones lives are so busy and we want them to enjoy the newsletter and not find it a chore.

Until next time, Happy Quilting

Oops, forgot to mention, look out for our latest advertisment in NZ Quilter, as my 2nd Assistant, Barney has gone national!
