"Bella" Handbag

I just received these photos from Heidi, a customer who has made the "Bella" handbag designed by Monica Poole of Moonshine Designs.

Fabulous work, Heidi ... the bag is gorgeous!

The Bella handbag has been made using fabrics from the "Flutterby" range by Moda. Other fabrics in the range can be seen on www.threadneedle.com.au.

The design has been so popular that I've had to re-order more patterns.

What a lot has happened since the holidays!

Last Saturday, we participated in Kidzfest with a craft stall at Daylesford Town Hall as part of the children's art & book festival.

My kids enjoyed the festival, making puppets, viewing art work & listening to childrens' stories being read.

Recently, I made one of Rosalie Quinlan & Melanie Hurlston's "Melly & Me" toys. "Ellie" is her name. I adored making her little tunic & pants. She looks very cute!

I have nearly finalised classes leading into Christmas. Apologies for the delay - we've nearly caught up from the busy school holiday period.

School Holidays Craft Fun

We've had an exciting time during the September school holidays, with lots of classes being held. The kids have been extremely creative.

Projects have included a card & coaster, flower magnet & "scrunchie" (with beads), necklace using memory wire plus earrings & fabulous photo frames.
We even had an extra t-shirt design class using Giotto Textile textas.

I'm starting to plan several classes for next quarter. Some classes will have a Christmas theme but others will have a simple focus on fun. Ideas include a handbag, quilt, Christmas block & cardmaking / scrapbooking activities.

I hope to see you there! Check our website for class updates soon (www.threadneedle.com.au).

Now the school holidays are nearly finished, I'll be taking a short break with my husband & two boys. We will be closed from Monday, 6 October & re-open on Saturday, 11 October.
