Sawmillers Sunday Demonstration

26 Nov


Hi Everyone,

Unfortunately I didn’t have a chance to do a new post last week, it was so busy at Sawmillers, we had 2 classes taking place on Thursday evening, one over in the tea house and another in Sawmillers. On Friday evening we had the Cupcake Quilt Class, we all had a great time, starting with a Pizza and Pavlova meal at 6.00pm served by Kevin, and then it was upstairs to make the quilt under the expert guidance of Dianne Barnden, it was amazing to see the different fabric combinations, Dianne gave us all great tips to make all aspects of piecing the quilt easier, we stopped at 9.30pm to have a cuppa and then it was upstairs again to finish off as much as we were able, there was lots of fun and plenty of laughs with a great group of ladies. We intend to hold another evening next year so keep an eye out for the details of the quilt we shall be making.


You can see above Dianne taking our free demonstration of Half Square Triangles and Fast Flying Geese, thank you to the Wairarapa ladies who visited us and of course those from Upper Hutt and the Lower Hutt/Wellington area, I think we can say we are less daunted to make either of these, Diane explained how to make them in a very simple and easy to understand manner and the printed sheets she distributed were a great help as everyone was able to take them home and use them for reference.

Having told you about all the happenings at Sawmillers over last weekend I shall be posting again tomorrow, this time with details of our Sawmillers Christmas, as well as details for the Stonestead Outdoor Quilt Festival until then,

Happy Quilting
