CQ News July 2011

Well the weather is wild, windy & wet!  Our family is about to  head off in the morning  for a 2 daybreak. The first in a very LONG  time together as we missed our annual holiday in January at the beach due to such a late harvest here on the farm.  So we will go  to Goolwa for 2 nights - might end up in the car or motel room out of the weather, but at least we are away & together vbg.

It is now less than a month before the amazing Sharon Schamber  arrives  in Australia. There are only a couple of spots left in the  domestic  classes now,  so  if  you are considering  learning from  this inspiring teacher then book in soon. There are still plenty of  spots to come see her trunk  show & hear her quilting story!

For those  having difficulty in finding some  supplies  to complete  her classes and patterns that are available, I now have some  of these items in stock.
