Calico Christmas Bus Trip!

On November the 5,6, and 7th the Auckland Guild are having their popular Calico Christmas Quilt show and we will be there as a Merchant selling all our latest fabric and bits n bobs.

Donna has organised a bus trip that will go up to the show on Sunday the 7th of November. The bus will leave Donna’s Quilt Studio at 8.30am and will leave the show at 2.30pm. The bus is $28.00 and there is an additional $12 entry fee once you get to the show.

Bus trips are so much fun and a good way to meet new people with the same hobbies.

If you are interested you can call on 8473692 or e-mail Donna @ places are fulling up fast so make sure you get in quick.

Pop a label on it.

Labels are the thing people forget the most when making a quilt. Not only do we sometimes forget but its hard to find some funky ones.

We have solved the problem!

We have just got these funky label panels in. They come in two colour ways, pink, red, white and also green, blue, grey, white. (see photo below). Each panel is $15.60 and comes with 45 labels in all different styles.

These are designed by one of our favourite fabric company Riley Blake. They always bring out the coolest ranges and they also have a very cool website they have a section called Cutting Corners and they have heaps of free patterns and How-To’s.  Very worth a look.

It has been a while since I have made any show of living on our blog site! Life has been so busy and unfortunately the blog has been the last thing on my mind. Anyway I’m back and ready to get blogging again.

We have been busy with the Craft and Quilt Fair here in Hamilton and also we had a stall down in shaky Christchurch. They both went really well and meet lots of wonderful people!

As thought, our cuddle fabric went really well with all our kits we had been making up and everyone was loving all the different colours we had.

Anyway, we have had SO much fabrics into the shop in the last couple of months, there is just too much to show you all on here so I thought I would just show you my favourite fabric we have got in. I just loooove this fabric! It is just crying out to be made into a cute kiddies dress!

Happy sewing 🙂
