Biggest Morning Tea – Thank You!

Our Biggest Morning Tea was held in store on 30 May.

A big thank you to everyone that helped make the morning success.  We were very touched by those of you that attended and donated to this very worthwhile cause.

The morning consisted of a lovely spread of morning tea goodies that was provided by the staff and lucky door prizes, a raffle, the silent auction and games all coordinated by our lovely Barbara.  The winners of the ‘Autumn in Our Town’ Quilt Challenge were also announced.

We set a target of $500 but at last count raised well over $700!!  All these funds will be donated to the Cancer Council.

Sew Easy Template Plastic

Pieced blocks for quilting must be sewn together exactly and for this reason templates must be accurate.  Sew Easy have a range of ready made templates in different shapes and sizes.  However, if you prefer to make your own, Sew Easy Template Plastic is preferable to using other materials such as cardboard, which tends to wear on the edges and become less accurate with use.  Sew Easy template plastic comes either gridded or plain and is easy to cut.  You can  mark measurements and direction with either pen or pencil to ensure correct positioning for cutting.  Sew Easy template plastic is also non-slip, and will not easily move out of position on your fabric. Sew Easy plain template plastic is also brilliant for making applique shapes.
