International Half Square Triangle Swap

5 Oct

Hi Everyone,

Well, they say Spring is on it’s way and whilst the daffodils and blossoms are all in full bloom in the Stonestead garden I have to say it is still a bit chilly, but I am sure the fine weather is just around the corner.

Our latest news is that Sawmillers customers have been invited to join an international half square triangle swap,  this means you can use all your uglies and also your stash to  make Half Square Triangles then bring them to us and we shall mail them to USA and Canada and they in turn send theirs to us, we distribute them to those who have signed up and then you can  make a quilt,wall hanging or whatever with them. The only proviso is that we all use the HST papers, this means they are all uniform in size then.

This is the outline for this event, but we are having a dedicated information night where you can find out more and sign up ( $5.00) to join as well.

I have posted some pictures of projects made with HST’s and we shall have another evening after Christmas and probably another one 3 months or so later.

The information evening is on Thursday 18th October at 7.30pm and if you would like further details just email or phone me at the shop.

Last but not least a little picture of the Official Greeters Bailey and Poppy who have turned their backs on each other!

Until next time

Happy Quilting
