Fabric Sale at Quilt Festival

15 Feb

Hi Everyone

So we are all praying for fine weather tomorrow so that the over 60 quilts currently in Kevin’s lounge can be hung for all the world to see!

I shall post a message on here and on the Stonestead blog if the Festival is cancelled, but we have decided that if that is the case the sale of fabrics, Jim Shore ware, Handbags and 1st grade Dacron Batting will still go ahead, the fabrics are all high quality, the batting is Quilt 85 and will be $8.00 a metre and there is 50% off the Jim Shore ware and 10% off the  handbags and sewing accessories we imported from the USA.

You can also sign up for any of the classes we are holding this year and in most cases there are class samples for you to look at too, go through to the class section of  and see what is available.

We shall look forward to seeing you all tomorrow, until then

Happy Quilting

Outdoor Quilt Festival News and Fabric Sale

5 Feb

Hi Everyone

The days are passing quickly now until the 6th Stonestead Qutdoor Quilt Festival, a new update has been posted on so go through and see what the latest news is.

Sawmillers will be open of course and the Official Greeter Bailey and Poppy will be there too, they have had their hair trimmed and blow dried for the occasion, but I can’t guarantee they will be awake for the whole day!

We have fabric going out on Special, this is high quality fabric, which we no longer have room for, there will also be some Jim Shore Christmas ware for sale at 50% discount, don’t linger if you want this as there isn’t a lot remaining, we also have the Namaste range of bags and sewing accessories at a discounted price too.

If you are going to be attending the quilt festival call in and say hello, we have able helpers Cheryl and Trish with us too, so until next time

Happy Quilting
