Redwork & Coast to Coast

18 Nov

Hi Everyone,

This is the latest addition to our stock at Sawmillers, we have a selection of plain cream and white cottons, self stripe as well as cream and white calicos too, also a beautiful Linen/Cotton mix, all of which can be used successfully with the Redwork Patterns we have just received from America, there are teapots, baskets, angels and a lovely quilt pattern combining redwork embroidery with patchwork designed by Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs.

We have the Cosmo Stranded Thread in a variety of colours as well as the Multi Work 2 Strand all be Lecien, this thread has had rave reviews in America. Instead of red thread why not try embroidering in Blue or even Green, I am doing one in Blue, as that is my favourite colour, just ask my girls!

If you would like to try this lovely work we have a light box you can borrow to transfer the designs onto the fabric you have purchased from Sawmillers.

We also have these lovely labels in stock, they can be bought from the bolt, but if you only want one, we sell them separately too, ask Yvonne about labels.

This Saturday 20th November is the Coast to Coast event, this is being held at the the Horticultural Hall in Lower Hutt 10.00am – 4.00pm, there is a Show and Tell, Merchants Mall and the guest speaker is Robyn Burgess.

Don’t forget it is that time of the year when we are planning the Stonestead Outdoor Quilt Festival, this is being held on Sunday 6th February 2011, all details can be found on the Stonestead blog or just phone Sawmillers and Yvonne will help you.

This is a great day out for everyone and with such a worthy cause as Te Omanga Hospice receiving the gold coin entry fee. I shall keep you informed regularly either through this blog or the Stonestead blog. Don’t forget we still have a few Challenge Packs available.

We can’t finish this posting without an update on the Official Greeters, as you can see they are quite happy to sit on my kitchen windowsill whilst I prepare dinner!

Until next time
