Hello ladies,

Well it was great to have the shop open again and ladies here for classes after our "long weekend!" I kept busy for the 5 days, but decided 5 days is my limit, I start to talk to myself after that!!


A new workshop coming up is "Jardin de poche" with Veronique Diligent. It is a gorgeous embroidery sampler with some needle turn applique. You can easily make it larger by repeating the embroideries and/or the applique blocks. The class will be held on Thursday 11th and 25th March, 9.30 - 12.30. Be quick to phone and book your place as this is going to be a very popular workshop! The sample is on display in the shop.

Also coming up is something different! As many of you know, we are involved in raising money for the Royal Children's Hospital - last year, even with the interruptions of Covid, we raised $70,000 with the Templestowe Auxiliary. However, the past 7 - 8 months have disrupted the stalls and events normally held as part of the major fund raising. So for the week starting monday 22nd March, we will be hosting a huge fundraising week! We will have loads of items for sale - all kinds of knitting, quilts, cushions, toys and lots more!! All beautifully handmade and packaged ..... be sure to put the date in your diary, you could start on your Christmas shopping!!

As you would have noticed over the past couple of months, we are waiting for a lot of stock to come in. Because of Covid, there is very limited stock coming out of the U.K. and other countries. We do have the full range of DMC stranded cottons in stock, but the Perles aren't available at the moment. I got some Aida this week, but only cream and white are available.

We also have some cute little Easter projects - little felt bunnies, 3 different patterns. I plan to make up the samples (don't hold your breath to see them though!!)

Just a quick thank you to everyone who is supporting my little business, in hard times it means so much and I am very grateful!


My best wishes,
