Barney Goes Global and New Fabric

17 Jul

Hi Everyone,

Because of organising classes this week we are a bit late getting this post written, but we still have lots going on here at Sawmillers and Stonestead Devonshire Teas.

Firstly the fabric featured above in the display and the close up is called ‘Flowers For Emma’ it is designed by Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs for Henry Glass, it is so pretty, we have the entire range which is in pink, blue, green and a lovely mushroomy brown.We have Fat 1/4 ers cut in it and we are also looking at cutting Sawmillers Strips ( Jelly Rolls) in the near future,a very reasonably priced fabric and would suit all types of patterns.

I must make mention of the Block Charms that have just arrived from America, a super gift for a quilter to put on a neck chain or charm bracelet, come and see mine I wear it every day in the shop and feel lost if I forget to put it on, gives me warm memories of quilt market.We shall be making up gift packs for quilters for Christmas so no doubt these shall be incorporated.

Don’t forget our Loyalty Card scheme, it doesn’t take long to accumulate the number required and you get a reduction on your next purchase, quite a bargain.We have just had a new facility loaded onto our EFTPOS terminal which means we can send goods out without the cardholder being present, so if you have run out of your favourite fabric and require more at short notice, give Yvonne a call and we shall see if we can help, not quite mail order yet, but we are working on it.

If you come and see us at Sawmillers and decide to visit the Tea House this is what you get, your own tray with beautiful English China a choice of scones and teas and lots of personal attention from the ‘boss.’

As you can see by the title of todays post Barney goes global this week with his picture in the latest issue of the NZ Quilter due out over the next couple of days, have a look and see how good he looks, in keeping with our latest arrival of Christmas fabrics, Barney is doing his mid year Santa bit.

Also above is a picture of the other member of our canine family, this Archie, who even though he hasn’t an official title he is at the quiltery every day, but he resides in the car all day so is a bit anti social, we are hopeful he will venture out once the weather improves.

We hope everyone has a great weekend, don’t forget the classes we are holding, the first beginners class is booked up and we have a wait list for the next two courses, but there are spaces available on the the others, but they are filling fast so to avoid disappointment don’t leave it too late.

Until next time, Happy Quilting.

    I’m so excited that the hungry caterpillar is coming to New Zealand. I will drop you an email about pre-ordering.
