New Range,New Thread, New Stand and Quilt Festival.

7 Nov


Hi Everyone,

My apologies, I haven’t been very efficient with the blog this past week, but we do thank all those who have visited us despite this. As you can see from the above picture we have another lovely range of fabric, it is ‘Celebration’ by Lecien I don’t feel the pictures are a true representation of the beautiful pink/terracotta, you really need to see it to appreciate it.

We also finally have our new threads, these were originally coming from Australia, but due to so many delays we spoke to the CEO of the company at Houston and they were sent direct from Canada, anyway we now have Invisafil,  it is a 100 weight, this thread is beautiful and recommended by many of our regular visitors to Sawmillers, it can be used for piecing, quilting and applique, it has an invisible quality to it and hopefully I shall have a shop sample alongside to show you all what it is like, we also have Mirage in variegated colours this is 30 weight and can be used for quilting, thread painting and applique and also have Deco Bob, which you can use in your bobbins as well as a top thread.


Kevin has also been really busy and has made a super notions stand, so no more rummaging around in the baskets, everything is on display, it is surprising what we have, apart from the stand we also now have a window display, so you will see fabric on display as you go past.

We have also been busy with classes, Adrienne Nelson was with us yesterday teaching a ‘Stack n Whack’ class and Dianne Barnden is continuing with her ‘Christmas Capers‘ class.

Last but not least is the 2nd Annual Stonestead Outdoor Quilt Festival, this is being held again on Sunday 7th February 2010, we shall be calling for registrations shortly once the Stonestead Blog has been updated, but if you require details now just phone Sawmillers on 04 526 2517

    Glad to see you and Kevin are back and showing new things in the shop. The new line looks just yummy! We are having a very mild November here and I have spent more time outdoors than usual….so need to focus and get ready for Christmas.
    My best to you.
