Sale week summary

Well,  the carpet was worn out with the traffic generated by the sale, thankyou to all that came over the week and l am sure that you got lots of bargains.  It was great as lots of bolts were moved on which has left room for more fresh new fabric and of course Christmas fabric.

The Macedon Ranges Spinners and Fibre Group had their display and sale in the classroom on Friday and Saturday, a group of very talented ladies who sat spinning , knattering and knitting,  all that visited were impressed with the standards and the talent involved.  It was so lovely to purchase a  hand spun and dyed and knitted  cardigan  , l was so impressed with how soft the cardigan was and a very reasonable price.                                                                                     The irony behind the days was the outside temperature,  warm, but hey this is Melbourne, and weather doesnt deter a good spinner  or knitter for that matter.

So this is 2014′s Christmas quilt for the shop, a most enjoyable and easy one to do.  Machine appliques circles onto various rectangular Christmas backgrounds.  The circle fabrics are quite bright and interesting  so all good…….
