Great class - great bags!!

This weekend Jacqui Karl was at The Cloth Shop teaching "Bags" Yesterday was the first day and they painted, stamped, embroidered and couched on different threads to their "plain" fabrics. Today they sewed their bags together - Trish is trimming batting for ther gusset.
Sharon and Trish sewing around the trickey corners. It is fun at a class to see the different colours and combinations everyone chooses, and how they are just "right" for the person who does the choosing!

Trish chose paua colours and for her stamps she chose koru hearts complemented her feature fabric perfectly!

Janice and Robyn chose pretty florals

they thought they were the slowest in the class - but they were wrong.

Mary chose a very sophisticated colour combination of grey and gold. It was a very successful weekend and everyone went home with their bags almost finished!

A busy weekend and a winner!

It was a fun weekend with The Rose City Quilters holding their Tote and Gloat Annual show here in Palmerston North.
Not only did we pack up our shop and set up for the show, but we were giving away a fabulous brand new Husqvarna Emerald 183 to one lucky ticket holder.

Marjorie Dawson was the lucky recipient of the sewing machine, (pictured above with Katherine checking out her prize). She was overwhelmed by winning the new machine, she has had a very stressful few months health wise and was delighted at being able to retire her very old machine and have a brand new one to use. She thought it was just the thing to get her back to quilting classes!
It was lovely to be able to give you this lovely machine Marjorie, and we hope to see many beautiful quilts as a result.

Here are a couple of photos of our booth at Tote and Gloat.
