Victoria, Fire Disaster

11 Feb

dscf0934Hi Everyone,

Whilst it would be an ideal time to tell you all about the Stonestead Outdoor Quilt Festival and the wonderful day we had, I think it would be preferable to leave that until the next posting, bearing in mind the tragedy that has occurred  across the Tasman in Victoria with the horrific fires and devastation they are currently experiencing.

I have spoken with Sue Burnett of Sue B’s Long Arm Quilting Service and Sawmillers is having the Heather Bailey quilt top (pictured above) quilted by Sue and then we shall be sending it to the co-ordinator for the quilt distribution in Victoria for her to send to where she thinks it will be of most use. It seems the least we can do at this terrible time. We have also decided that a selection of the Heather Bailey range along with fabric designed by Anna Maria Horner, Denyse Schmidt and Jennifer Paganelli will continue to be reduced for those visitors who would like to make a quilt for the fire victims too and this will help to keep the cost down. 

If you know which fabric you want and are unable to get to us, just phone or email and I can organise it for you. We shall be posting all the details and pictures of the quilts from the festival along with the winners entry details over the next week or so, so keep checking back.

On a more personal note, I only have 3 sleeps to go before my daughter Samantha and her husband Lance arrive from America, so we are getting very excited, the house is almost spic and span, Barney, Number 2 Assistant and Official Greeter  along with Archie ,Number 3 Assistant Unpaid) have been groomed in readiness for the arrival and shall be wearing their ‘special’ bandanas for the event, don’t forget Samantha will be spending the day at Sawmillers on Thursday 19th February, so call in and say hello, she would really like to meet you all.

Until our next posting, Happy Quilting
