Carrots and chickens arrive

Aren't these just the cutest carrots? Liz has been busy stitching up storm here at The Cloth Shop making pages for a childs activity book which will be a sample for a brand new Block of the Month (details are on the website on the Really New page).

All the pages are interactive, and little fingers will spend hours playing and exploring.
This little chicken is nesting in the top of the barn. If you'd like to have a look at the finished sample it is in our shop now.

Being a Friday, the Cloth Shop is always open for anyone who would like to come and sew. Here Katherine and Kath were caught discussing the design, and the technicalities of ruling 101 lines on calico for one of the textured cushions Kath is making. Sometimes it is harder than it seems!

Don't you love it when a UFO comes together?

Norma was working at The Cloth Shop yesterday getting the quilt top, backing and batting all put together with a little help from some basting spray. Norma started this quilt top for her niece when she turned 1, and aims to get it quilted and finished in time to give it to her for her 17th birthday shortly!
It's a beautiful quilt, well worth the wait we think! We're sure it will be treasured!

A new bag and a finished quilt

Glenys had a productive day at The Cloth Shop recently and proudly displays her new bag. If you like the look of her bag, it's called, 'It's a Great Bag', contact us if you'd like more information or if you'd like to purchase a pattern. Although we don't have any of this particular fabric left, we do stock lots of gromets which you will need. You can check out our website for more information as well.

She also had her finshed quilt to show us, she had made it for her grandson, and we think he's going to love it to bits!

Wow, look at this impressive quilt label!

A lovely embroidered label made by Ivy.
