Exit January

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.

 Quite a lot actually!!!

Christmas fabric - I know it seems a little premature but we have received some in so it's out and on sale... Rich reds, greens, gold and blue.. 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!

Have you seen the class list yet? Have a look and book yourself on a class. We held a machine quilting class yesterday and it was a lot of fun, with very positive feedback from all the participants.

Back soon with more news.


New embroidery ribbons and Perle threads

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.

 At last.. and are filling up quite quickly. There are spaces on this Saturdays Taster day so if you haven't given quilting a go but think it may be for you sign up. It may be the best $30 you will ever spend.. a new hobby and new friends!

There has been a few bolts of fabric in these past few days,, You may have seen in the header collages Folk tales by Natalie Lymer for Lecien.. This fabric really is quirky and fun, the colours are great. I have an old block of the month of Natalie's that I really must get on with. It is mainly stitchery I think I have done half of block one - RUBBISH of me I know. 
We also have had a few new Batik fabrics in and some lovely suede look blender fabrics in tones  of blue and grey. We keep wanting to stroke them!

Rulers... two new widths and lengths of ruler:

4" x 14"

3" x 18"

and a wonky block ruler, I am planning on trying this out tomorrow. I'll post more on this in the newsletter.

Back soon..
