Exit January

by Fiona Shepherd
on January 29, 2015

As January draws to a close we are busy planning our next class list. Classes and dates will be out by the middle of February.

January has been a busy month the highlight of which was our 5 days at Symposium in Palmerston North. My class with Debby Williams was great fun and I look forward to putting my new drafting skills to the test as I plan to design a Mariners Compass quilt.. Watch this space. Mum went to a Shibori dyeing class and has come home with all sorts of ideas...

New fabric is always coming in, this weeks surprise was a box of long forgotten Christmas-Fabric - Holiday Wishes. The fabric is now on the website and is highlighted on the front page.

Quillts for Christchurch update

by Fiona Shepherd
on October 23, 2013

Apologies for the silence... We have all been working away in the background and making more quilts and we sent a further box of fifteen quilts down last month. Tania tells me that these have all been distributed and are all well loved in their new homes. I do have a photo or two but I cannot distribute them using the blog! If you happen to be in the shop we can show you. It made my day to see the wee boy clutching his quilt!

The pile is slowly growing for the next shipment.. we have been held up slightly with life getting in the way in the form of quilt shows teaching and generally enjoying the shop.

I will post photos on Facebook very soon I promise..

Quilts for Christchurch

by Fiona Shepherd
on July 25, 2013

Thank you everyone for you support in this wee venture! We have sent 15 quilts so far the Christchurch and have promises of more in the coming weeks. Gisborne Quilters are spending their monthly get together this coning Saturday making quilts to be sent - Thanks Ladies!

The Gisborne Herald featured us on page two on Saturday 13th! If you haven't seen it:

They were also kind enough to send round Ben Cowper who has spent a week with them making videos on interesting events in Gisborne. He chose us and this project as one of his topics and the video is on the Gisborne Herald website. Ben did a fabulous job, all in one take last week. I am not too sure about the presenter.. but it gets the message across..

There is more to come but if you want to get ahead of the game for Christmas 2013.. this is your chance. We also have last years out as well so there is quite a selection to choose from. All $26 a metre. I will be putting all the Christmas fabric on the Website in the coming week.

Also in in a fabulous range of fabric from Red Rooster - Postcard Garden. I've put an album of photos on Facebook and it is on the front page of the website as well. There was lots of oohh and aahhs on Friday and Saturday here in the shop so be in quick I don't think it will last that long!

by Fiona Shepherd
on June 17, 2013

We received a beautiful parcel last week from the House of Embroidery.. full of thread to restock the Perle stand and something new and exciting for More Than Fabric Mis-Dyes. Basically these are the lots that haven't passed the colour quality control - We have 4mm 100% Silk Ribbon. There are six colours available and once it has gone it is gone. We have packaged in five metre packs and the pack retails for $7.50. The six colours are on the website in the Habby - Ribboon section.

We also received Perle 12  but this has sold out fast. what is left will be in the newsletter or if you are interested email me and I can send you a photo or pop into the shop if you are in town!

The class list is updated and we have scheduled classes out to the beginning of December. Check out the Class tab on the website.
