The GO! Fabric Cutter orders have been arriving fast and furious. It seems Accuquilt has been working thru their orders at a swift pace.For those of you who have already purchased your new cutting system, you might be interested in this new book. It’s called Mix & Match Quilts with the Accuquilt GO! I’ve had quite a good look at the book and there are lots of worthwhile patterns. Each pattern lists the fabric requirements and also the dies required to get the job done.
Here are a few bags added to our fabulous Hazel Steel’s bag workshop on Saturday. Hazel has agreed to add another date to the list of workshops. So if you are interested in learning this fantastic technique please do not hesitate to contact Carol at 0191 268 8144 to register your interest. These superb bags lend themselves to many uses.
We have added another workshop to the list. We will be holding a Texas Lone Star Quilt workshop on March 16th. If you are interested in learning how to piece the lovely traditional quilt this is the workshop for you. Carol will show you a very simple and effective version of this technique. Once finished this quilt will be octagonal shaped.
We all aspire to learn new techniques. Carol and her staff are no exception to the rule. Well we have recently taken delivery of a new Lil Gracie II quilting frame. The challenge has been set that all of Carol’s staff learn to do some Free Motion Quilting to a reasonable standard using this new tool. We loaded a little quilt this week and Carol had a go. It’s all very exciting. We’ll keep you posted as we progress.
We are very busy getting ready for Pins & Needles. We are really looking forward to meeting friends old and new! So if you do happen to be attending please pop by and say hi. Carol has a few surprises up her sleeve and it may well be worth your while stopping by.
Well we’re hoping that spring is just around the corner. Here is photo of a few cheerful bits to put you in mood.
So that’s what’s new around the shop. Tune in again next week to keep up with the news.
