Sawmillers Visits Capital Quilters

30 Apr

cqHi Everyone,

I had a wonderful time at the April meeting of Capital Quilters, everyone was so interested in the talk I gave, I hadn’t realised the level of interest in Ballroom and Latin American gowns and dancing in general too, the questions from the floor were excellent and hopefully I was able to answer them effectively, the picture above is taken with Capital Quilters President Adrienne Nelson, the members of the club were so welcoming and it was lovely to see so many familiar faces and what a lovely welcome I was given, I must take the opportunity to thank Sylvie, Lisa, Barbara,Cheryl and last but not least Julie, I also got to see the new baby boy!!

Kevin and I have been visiting Maria who has just designed our new Block of the Month, it is so lovely, it will be a Mystery BOM, but I know it has some Applique and there will be 2 colourways which we have on display at Sawmillers, as soon as I get more details I shall let everyone know the final cost.

dscf1024I have just re-ordered the William Morris range pictured above in all colours, as you know we have a policy of not repeating orders on the ranges that we stock, this enables us to always have new ranges in Sawmillers regularly, but this range has gone so well, that we have had to rethink our policy just this once, don’t forget if you buy the fat quarters to make the little dress we give you the pattern for it.

I have heard from Samantha in USA to say her father in law Roy was been re-admitted to Palmerston North hospital on Sunday, he had already had an operation on his shoulder but developed a complication, fortunately all is well now and it is hoped he will return home to Lisa his wife and the dogs within the next day or so feeling much better, we all wish him a very speedy recovery, Lisa is a quilter in Palmerston.

A quick note about the canine assistants, they are both looking very handsome now they have been groomed, I am hoping to post a picture of them very shortly, so until the next posting.

Happy Quilting

    We really enjoyed your talk at the recent CQ meeting, I’ve never seen our club so quiet and enthralled before 🙂 Am looking forward to checking out the mystery BOM fabric range over the weekend. Hugs Jx

    Yvonne it is always a treat to visit your Quilt shop, then wonder over to Kevins retreat and indulge in a lovely Devonshire Tea.
    Thank you for an entertaining talk.
    See you soon

        So sad about the break in….they say bad things come in 3’s…maybe your run is over. I hope so. I just finished talking to Dianne. She said her class was fun! I will be reading to keep up with you….don’t worry. Denniele
