Curious Nature

It's here - finally! This fabric has entered my mind more than once since seeing it in Houston.

Designed by David Butler this fabric range is very cool. The mix of cool colours and geometric prints makes this quite a masculine range, but with hints of hand drawn patterns and soft nature like themes it also has a soft edge.

$18.50 per meter makes them even prettier!

I will try and have these on the web by the end of the week, but for now I have to get the next round of block of the months packaged.

Sue Spargo, 2012

Sue Spargo will be back with us before you know it, and I cannot wait! Her classes are always such a lovely day and this year I will be lucky enough to be doing one myself... but that's besides the point.

Sue will be teaching her wonderful ways of embellishment, giving students a choice of the following projects.

These birds are adorable!

Each embellished differently, having their own individual character.

Just like these flowers.

The circles are simple but effective, and have a certain something!

These projects are small - perfect for wall hangings or to be framed. They could even be turned into a center panel of a quilt.

Sue will be concentrating on embellishment during her class - probably best to have some or all of your applique shapes down onto your background before the class.
We will be looking into getting kits from Sue - let us know when you book what project appeals to you and whether or not you'd like to purchase a kit (please note: kits are not included in class price).

Dates and prices:
Sue's 2 day workshop will be Sunday 26th and Monday 27 of August. $290 per person.
Sue's 1 day workshop will be Tuesday 28th of August. $150 per person.

Both the 1 day and 2 day workshops will be working on embellishment. Students are able to come to both if class spaces permit.
Please note, these classes are booking up quickly and a $50 deposit per student must be left to secure your places.

I can't wait!
