After the huge success of our first Airing of the Quilts last September it’s time to do it again. 

For those of you who missed it last time, for some years now I have wanted to have a “show & tell” of customer’s antique and vintage quilts.  I know a number of us buy old quilts, love them to death but end up putting them away safely in a cupboard.  I know I do that myself. 

So if you have some quilts you would like to share with other quilt collectors, bring them along.  If you just love old quilts but don’t own any, come along too, you may catch the bug.

Bookings are essential for the Airing of the Quilts, as we only have so many chairs, so please ring to book your place, and let us know if you are bringing quilts with you.

Details – Sunday 29 May, 2pm for a 2.30 start

Cost $10.00

Afternoon tea will be provided.

Limited numbers so ring to book your place now on

02 9550 4947.

We look forward to seeing you in the shop at 75 Nelson Street, Annandale.

All the photos above were taken at our inaugural Airing of the Quilts last year.

What's happened in the shop this week.

We had the first part of Catherine Butterworth's two day Hexagon Stars Workshop.  Here is the gang.

They were very busy and the blocks being put together made me want to do the Workshop.

We will be running another two day workshop later in the year so if you are interested  please ring the shop as we already have a number of customers who have put their names down.

Today we had Val Moore's monthly class.   They are doing a bit of beautiful hand Broderie Perse. 

 This is Robyn's masterpiece under construction.

Val's quilt is beautiful and it is that most wonderful of all things finished.

Olwyn has created this wonderful Morris vase of flowers.

This is a sneak peek at Shirley's border on her applique quilt.  Look at all the perfect berries!!!!

If you would like to master applique, either hand or machine, then Val's class is for you.  Her class is on the first Friday of the month.  We currently have a few vacancies.  These are the first vacancies we have had for Val's class in over three years so if you are interested please ring the shop.

Civil War blocks update.

Here are Kate's blocks so far, up on the design wall.  She wants to ditch the gold fabric, I say it's great just add some more.

Here are the last two of my blocks to come off the production line.
