Hi Everyone,

Firstly thank you for the kind messages after our break in, we received a lovely email from a customer who offered to loan some of the equipment that had been stolen, Kevin is very grateful and sends his thanks to you.

Well, onto our new exciting Block of the Month, it has been designed specifically for us and we love it! This is actually a Mystery BOM, I can hear groans from those who like to know what the end product is going to be and want control over their project, but take it from me this is a lovely quilt, the fabric is designed by Jane Shasky for Henry Glass and has roses scattered across it, we have used all the supporting fabrics that are in the range, so you know everything blends well together. Apart from the pieced blocks there are two blocks with Applique, and you don’t have to be experienced to do any of this quilt which can be made by beginners just as easily as more experienced piecers and quilters. We have 2 colourways, Cream and Aqua and because we are limiting how many can participate in the programme we have decided to make registrations on a first come first serve basis, the programme lasts for 8 months so you will have it completed by the end of the year. On registering you will receive your welcome and border fabric in the colourway of your choice as well as your first block, so you will be all set to go, don’t let this lovely quilt pass you by, this is a limited programme, so don’t wait too long to register, just phone us or email for any other details or why not come up and see us, as we have the first block in both colourways on display.

DSCF1062You may have remembered the posting about the book signing we held, when our tutor Dianne (L) and her friend Dennielle came to Sawmillers to sign the ‘Circuit Riders Quilt‘ book which their quilts and patterns were featured in, we had a great time and it was lovely to finally meet Dennielle, who I gather  regularly checks this blog/newsletter to see the happenings here at Sawmillers. Well, Dianne came on Saturday to take the first class for the ‘Christmas Capers‘ quilt and unbeknown to us had a very sore knee from a surgical procedure she had had earlier in the week, she was great, how she managed to teach for 3 hours I don’t know, but I have to say she looked pretty seedy when she left, I just want to say a big thank you from Kevin and I for being dedicated enough to continue with the class despite feeling unwell, Get Well Soon, Dianne, and Thank you.

On the subject of Dianne I must mention her husband Chris who competed in a Professional Boxing match a few weeks ago, what a courageous man, I gather this was something he had been wanting to achieve for years, and he just went for it, training solidly for months, and did really well, the result was very close by all accounts. Congratulations, Chris.

We hope you all have a very productive week and look forward to seeing you when you are able to call and see us, until next time.

Happy Quilting.

    Yvonne,
    Yes, I do check in on you regularly to read about and see what you are doing. I have such wonderful memories of Sawmiller’s. That Dianne is a trooper! I just finished speaking with her on the phone and she sounds so much better. The BOM looks lovely…I will be watching for more updates. Denniele
