IMG_0192Hi Everyone

Above is one of the many classes we are offering this year at Sawmillers, to see what else is available either go through to or go to Classes on the right side of the page and that will take you through too, I am just in the process of uploading more images of the classes.

Sawmillers will also be open on Waitangi Day, so for those who have quilts to be dropped off then I shall be here as will Kevin so you could have a Devonshire Tea too.

I have just updated the Stonestead blog too, so go through to see the latest update for the Quilt Festival

So until next time

Happy Quilting



Outdoor Quilt Festival, Sale Goodies and Classes

23 Jan

Hi Everyone,

As usual at this time of the year our days are taken up with making sure the Stonestead Outdoor Quilt Festival is a great success, in conjunction with this event Sawmillers will as usual have ‘specials’ on fabrics and other quilt related items, the details for these we shall publish nearer the time, but suffice it to say there will be bargains to be had!

We have just published a new posting with more details about the festival on the Stonestead blog so go through and read the latest news.

In the meantime the new Floral Gatherings from Moda has arrived, so I shall be busy getting that displayed and also put on the website, I shall also be putting the classes on the site for this year so keep checking as more tutors confirm they are able to teach for us.

So, until next time

Happy Quilting
