Smocking Classes

17 Mar

Hi Everyone,

Well, I know we didn’t have much of a summer, but it really is a beautiful day here at Sawmillers, the Official Greeters, Bailey and Poppy are sunning themselves on the verandah, although Bailey gets a tad concerned when the cyclists go past, he really dislikes bikes!!

As I have said in the email I sent out we have been asked for Smocking Classes, so I have added a class to our class list, at this stage I am asking for Expressions of Interest, so go through to the Class page and you will see all the details there.

We had the first class of the Baltimore Quilt course last night, what a great evening we all had, it was good because we had new pupils as well as more experienced so we all got lots of inspiration, I have begun a Wait List for this class so if you are interested let me know as I can arrange for another class to be held.

The wedding plans seem to be going well, and I have been sent lots of ideas for what a Mother of the Bride should wear!! It will be so lovely to spend time with my daughters and their partners and I am hoping my son and his partner will be with us too, fingers crossed.

I have finally had a hold of my latest Great Grandson, Braydon George, he is the most handsome baby and doing really well considering he was premature.

Don’t forget if you want any details of classes other than what is on the Class page just contact Sawmillers and we shall do all we can to help you.

Until next time

Happy Quilting


What a Wild and Windy Day It Is!

3 Mar

Hi Everyone,

Well, the forecasters said it was on it’s way and it has arrived, Kevin has been out picking up the debris from around Sawmillers and Stonestead, what a mess, the Official Greeters Bailey and Poppy are very unimpressed and are cuddled up to each other.

I have had exciting news this week as my daughter Georgina and her fiance Ferry have set a date for their wedding, it will be April next year and is to be in the Napa Valley, California, they were thinking of how difficult it was going to be for me to share the day had it been in England, so with the help of Samantha  my daughter in Delaware we are all getting excited and relatively organised!

The class registrations are going very well so go through to the Class page and see what is available, some classes are almost at their limit but check with me in case I have had cancellations, don’t forget you get a 10% discount off the fabric for your class too, which I am sure will help.

The heat pump is on in Sawmillers so we are very cosy and warm, so if you want to venture out and get a fabric fix come in and see me and the Official Greeters, we have just received a lovely range of fabric as well as a childrens panel I shall be sending an email with more details too.

Until next time

Happy Quilting
