More New Arrivals and The Very Hungry Caterpillar

25 Jul

Hi Everyone,

Well, I suspect everyone is waiting for the storm to arrive, if you listen to weather reports it is imminent, but I have to say it won’t affect us here in Te Marua, because despite the weather predictions we are going to be toasty warm over the entire weekend, not just in Sawmillers but at the Tea House too.

Featured in these two photographs is the new range we have received from Andover called Old English Rose it is designed by one of my favourite designers Gail Kessler, her shop is called Ladyfingers and is in the depths of the Pennsilvanian countryside at a village called Oley.We were fortunate to meet Gail at her shop and at quilt market and her talent knows no bounds.

We have also placed an order with Andover for their latest childrens fabric, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, this has been such a worldwide success that it won’t arrive until the end of August, as the manufacturers have had to do reprints, the poor agents in Australia are tearing their hair out trying to organise orders for shops here in New Zealand and Australia.

If you would like to go onto the Wait List for this range you can contact us either by coming into Sawmillers, emailing us at or telephone us on 04 526 2517, we anticipate stocking the whole range, the example above is the panel we have on order.

My 2nd Assistant Barney is flushed with his celebrity status now he has gone global, but I have made the necessary arrangements for his next session at the canine beauty parlour so we await in anticipation for the beginning of August when he should be looking most handsome once more.

We wish everyone a wonderful weekend and Happy Quilting

    Gosh, this was one of my childrens favourite stories, now that was a long time ago. This is a fantastic website which is the gateway to a fabulous quilting experience. Well done Yvonne and thankyou. You dont suppose you could sell me another 7 days in the week extra. Time is the worst enemy for a hungry cat..I mean quilter’. By the way, trees are down our way, the storms have arrived
