Free Thread!

For 3 days on June 1st, 2nd, 3rd, if you purchase $15 or more of fabric ‘by-the-metre’, you will get a free 1000 mtr spool of Rasant Natural Cotton thread (valued at $7.95).

Rasant is a very special cotton thread, which is valued by quilters for its strength and durability, but with the look and feel of cotton, making it ideal for machine piecing and quilting work. It is lightfast and, because of the cotton covering a polyester core, it is both supple and strong.  You’ll love it!

Mariners Compass with Chris Jurd

Two very exciting workshops being offered at Hobbysew Belconnen by well known teacher, Chris Jurd.

MARINERS COMPASS (Basic) – Saturday 30 JUNE

MARINER’S COMPASS (The Continuing Journey) – Sunday 1 JULY

Chris’ is inspired by antique quilts and teaches her students about contrast in both value and scale to make sure their designs stand out and their fabric choices all work together.

Based on the beautiful designs of old compass faces used by European seafarers as far back as the 13th century, the basic Mariner’s Compass quilt, whilst easy to learn, can be striking in its use of pattern and colour.

Chris Jurd will teach a beginner’s class on Saturday and a workshop for more advanced skills on Sunday.  Beginners are also welcome on Sunday as Chris has designed the class to suit all levels and everyone will benefit from individual attention.

Both classes are priced at $95 + materials. To book, phone Hobbysew Belconnen on
02 6253 0011. For more info about Chris take a look at her blog Patchwork Fundamentals

Get the girls together for a special preview screening of “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” on Wednesday 23 May at 7pm. (Opens in cinemas 31 May)

Starring Cameron Diaz, Matthew Morrison and Dennis Quaid, the movie is a look at love through the eyes of five interconnected couples experiencing the thrills and surprises of having a baby. As one of the character’s says of parenthood, “There’s no such thing as ready. You just get into a running train and hope not to die.” The film is the story of the planning and anxiety of pregnancy for both parents that leads to the miracle of holding a tiny life in the palm of your hand. But no matter how carefully you plan, life doesn’t always deliver what’s expected!

It will be a night of laughs, plus every guest receives a fab goodie bag filled with all the brands you know and love.

Hobbysew Erina has been invited to take part in the “Girls Night In” event at Hoyts.  Join Karen and the girls, who will be manning a Hobbysew table in the foyer of the cinema in Erina Fair from 5.30pm.  They will have free goodie bags and fliers to give to everyone who attends the screening.
