Woodland at Daylesford Craft Experience

Did I happen to mention Cinderberry Stitches is coming to the Daylesford Craft Experience??

On the Sunday, Natalie is going teach us how to make fantastic quilts and show us all her trips and traps using her current fabulous range of fabrics namely Woodland. This is the quilt pattern we will follow....

Here is just a snippet of some of the colourways.... if you come to Sunday you will have in your goodies bag the fabric to do the quilt top as well as the required threads.

I am in the process of choosing threads to go with these and having a ball doing it!!!

But wait there is more.  Some of you might have seen that Natalie is anxiously awaiting her new range.  Well because she is such an amazing lady she is going to talk about how she goes about developing a new range.

Not going to tell you about her other designs for Saturday yet - but I am sure there will be some sneak peaks soon..

More to follow as Jodie and I are working on wool fabrics.

Daylesford Craft Experience

So the end of the School Holidays - our last class has finished with amazing results. 

One of the new and improved versions of the Satchel Bag.  This time with Bag Batting so it stands on its own.
Now back to the school routine.  Our routine will continue to be a bit more involved for a while longer but we are getting there....

What can I say....

We have two great designers that are already creating amazing designs just for you!!!  One of our designers will be bringing something pretty precious with her as well (don't worry Natalie I will make sure there are chairs for you to relax into everywhere!!) as well as her amazing Woodland Fabric to play with (and maybe a viewing of her new range with any luck??).  You might have seen a little hint at Jodie's as well.. (we are working on the wool at the moment so stay tuned)

And then...

Kate from Foxs Lane will bring in her amazing crochet and knitting for you to see and ask questions about.

Zoe, who designs for the fabulous wool company in New Zealand, Rare Yarns, can also talk to you about yarn, design and felting. (check out the free pattern pictured below at their website)

This month's free pattern


You know that RicRac girly is going to tell us how she came from being someone who likes making stuff to a bona fide designer (mind you I reckon she is the only one surprised - you only have to look at her work.....)

And just because I like gadgets, I will show you some of the things that I have tracked down in the craft world that you can play with. 

Am in the process of hoarding some things just for you right now.  Hope to see you there.....

School Holidays & DCE

Its School Holidays!!! We are already enjoying sitting around and drinking hot chocolates at home rather than early morning trips and tired kids in the evenings.

We have a great School Holiday program at Threadneedle that can be found here.  So if you are at a loose end with the kids give me a call and they can come and have some fun (and you can have some rest)!!!

With all that has been going on we haven't told you about what is happening in the afternoon of first day of the Daylesford Craft Experience......

Well rather than add it on to this blog it will be in my next .... but here is a hint - this amazingly talented lady is one of the crafty folk coming in the afternoon.... rather foxy dont you think???  (This is an old post but I love the colours!!)

And while we are at ideas you might have seen that Jodie is already showing stunning designs over on Ric Rac

While all this is happening I have also been stockpiling some gorgeous fabric for Natalie of Cinderberry Stitches - I wish my work area was as organised!!!

I am getting excited now and bookings are coming in so if you want to come and play you need to let me know soon!!!
