Quilting Retreat Scandal!

Aided and abetted by Lyn Bertram and Donna Warren from Hobbysew Hornsby,

20 ladies escaped from their husbands and kids to the peaceful, fully catered retreat at Ferndale near Wisemans Ferry.  There, they eached sewed a specially designed medallion quilt, while chatting and enjoying scones and cakes fresh out of the oven, lunching outside in the sunshine overlooking the river with a glass of wine, and fab dinners in the evenings, from Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon. Outrageous!

At night they enjoyed the privacy of cabin accommodation with a queen bed, kitchenette, and their own bathroom.  As if this weren’t enough, Hobbysew donated a goody bag of products for each participant to take home.

Plans for the next get-away weekend are already being put in place with a special quilt being designed. (Photos to be posted on this website soon.) Unfortunately, the maximum number of people who can escape to Ferndale is 25, so if you would like to enjoy a weekend of outrageous indulgence, the first 25 people to pay their deposit will have their names included on the “Escapee List”.  Then you just need to pop into Hobbysew Hornsby to choose your fabrics.  For more details about the quilt pattern, fabric, dates & costs, email Donna, Ruth or Lyn at hornsby@hobbysew.com or phone 02 9477 5885.

All you Brother sewing machine enthusiasts will already know about the terrific Innov-is embroidery machines, nicknamed The Disney, which can sew out all your favourite Disney characters. Well, lucky Erina shoppers can catch a special 2 hour demonstration on Tuesday 10th May.  You will be amazed at this clever machine.

And while you’re in store, you can lick your lips over the state-of-the-art Quattro 2 embroidery machine, with its famous Colour Shuffling function. 

Incidentally, have you checked out Brother’s excellent tutorials on their websites?  You can get lots of tips and techniques, such as freehand quilting on their USA site, or even a free project.  How about this vibrant Autumn wallhanging http://www.brother-usa.com/Homesewing/DesignStudio/View.aspx?cat=projects&id=607 and on Brother’s Australian website there’s a free pattern to make a cute reversible bag at http://www.brother.com.au/portals/0/pdf/FlowerBagProject.pdf
