TGIF Pizza and Pavlova Class + The Sydney Trip

23 Oct

Hi Everyone,

Well as promised another update with news from Sawmillers, firstly to remind you all we are still taking enrollments for the ‘Thank God It’s Friday’ Quilt Class with a Pizza and Pavlova meal included, if you would like to join Dianne and me for what will be a great night, get in touch to enroll. You will go home with a super quilt well on it’s way to completion and will have also benefited from making new friends all with quilting in mind.

I also said I would bring you all up to date on the very rushed visit to Sydney, the main object of the trip was to visit our suppliers and see for ourselves the new warehouse that they moved into just over a month ago. It was so interesting, as at last we were able to see where the fabric is held prior to being sent out and as you can see by the pictures it is enormous, with just shelves and shelves of fabric and in the majority of cases already on the bolt, it was quite strange seeing fabric there that we have at Sawmillers as well.

The other pictures are of me selecting the new ranges we are going to be stocking at Sawmillers, as you can see it is such a difficult job trying to eliminate those fabrics which you don’t think will be popular with our customers, if I had my way I would have them all, but the Boss said no! We have received some but the main ranges haven’t been released at Quilt Market in Houston yet, so they won’t be with us until after Christmas, but that isn’t to say we haven’t new fabric coming in before then, in fact we have a new range of Orientals, just a small one but terrific colours, we shall displaying them in the centre of the shop this weekend so shall be posting the pictures soon. I have to admit we were also able to incorporate a visit to the South Pacific Ballroom and Latin American Dancesport Championships this was a 2 day event and we witnessed some fabulous dancing, it means we can also pass on new work to our pupils at the dancing school.

There are more classes starting shortly too so I shall be posting details of those within the next day or so, as well as details of our Halloween promotion and the Outdoor Quilt Festival too.

So until the next time, have a great long weekend and why not call and see us we shall be open on Labour Day and see the new ranges we have, it seems Archie may have to go on the biscuit payroll as he spends more time in Sawmillers than the car now, Kevin has the oven on all ready to make your scones and the heaters are always on so you can be toasty warm at Stonestead Tea House.

Until next time, Happy Quilting.
