December 1

Hard to write the date down today, as its really the countdown now till Christmas and there is so much to do…both at the shop and at home not to mention birthdays for family members.

I did get the Shop Christmas quilt up a month ago so l was proud of myself for that but realised there wasnt a photo of it.

The quilt is made of entirely scraps, including the linen background courtesy of a mistake in cutting that l made some time ago……..

Kerrie Thomas of Black Forest Quilting did a fabulous job as usual, with the quilting you may see the little Christmas trees quilted.

There are other Christmas fabrics available at the shop and l have pictured just a small example.

Classes for the year will wind up next week, but l have been working on a variety of classes for next year.

I will be introducing a range of dressmaking based classes run on a Friday morning, the projects are being finalised at the moment but they look great and varied.

“Using your overlocker” is also coming  to a Friday morning….so watch the class schedule for dates.

Judy Newman and Irene Blanck will be having January 2016 classes dates are listed in the class schedule.  Bookings are essential.

My shop hours for the holiday period:

I will be closed Thursday 24 December 2015 and reopen Tuesday  5 January 2016.

To extend my break l will be reducing my shop opening hours for the first week only  10.00 am  – 4.00 pm

So thanks again.

Cheers Mary
