CQ news Nov

Not long now until I leave to drive to Melbourne!

If anyone would like to order supplies to collect at Australian Quilt Market next weekend, then I’ll need your orders in by lunchtime on Tuesday 10th Nov. I drive out at 6am on Wednesday. I will have a selection of books, gadgets, DVD’s as well as both the A1 Quilting machine and Intelliquilter to look at whilst at the show. Please come along and have a play on the machine & say hello to Michele & I.

Also I’m pretty proud of myself because I today finally sat down and made a lovely little fabric wrapped clothesline bowl to hold the lollies on the stand. I used Mrs King’s Gallery Baskets DVD to guide me step by step through the process & it’s not too bad for my first attempt.

So please do come & check out my new bowl!
