Wellington Quilt Exhibition.

11 Sep

Hi Everyone,

Yesterday saw the ‘boss’ and I in Wellington visiting the Wellington Quilters Exhibition, we were invited to attend the opening on Thursday evening as we were amongst the sponsors, but I was teaching the beginners class at Sawmillers and Kevin was teaching pupils at DancZport, so we were unable to attend.Never the less the work on display was wonderful and it was so nice to be able to see work produced by ladies who have visited us at Sawmillers in the short time we have been open, you can’t help but be inspired by all the work on display, of special interest were the ‘Playing Cards’ we encourage those that are able to go along and view the beautiful work. Pinestream Quilters also have their exhibition at Expressions in Upper Hutt.

We hosted two lovely groups of ladies last Saturday, they visited us here at Sawmillers and then went over to Kevin and had Devonshire Teas, they had also been to see the exhibition in Wellington. Don’t forget if you get a group of quilters together and want a day out, you can visit us at Sawmillers and then have a Devonshire Tea as well, just get in touch with us and we can arrange it, and even be here on the days we are normally closed, Barney the Official Greeter just loves meeting new people.

I have to say at this point that having help from Julie last weekend was great, she was such a help to me and if you visit her blog you will read more about it.

This post is a tad brief, we have a beginners class tonight and I have yet to roll some new fabric onto bolts ready to display.

I shall be away tomorrow as I have to go to Palmerston North to attend a dear friends ordination at St Peters’, but I am leaving Sawmillers in very safe and capable hands with Audrey, you may remember her from a few years ago, she has lots of experience, so be kind to her and make her feel at home.

Until next time, Happy Quilting
