Hi Everyone,Just a reminder to everyone that there will be NO Quilters Circle Meeting this week due to a Wedding being held in the Hall.Our next Quilters Circle meeting is Saturday, 10th September.

 

This is also “Fairbridge Weekend” for some of us, however, The Quilters Circle will be running as usual by our wonderful back-up team and I promise that there will be a Newsletter – hahaha

 

See you all in a few weeks.

 

Happy Quilting!

As promised, we will be starting a Block of the Month (BOM) Programme in the next month or so.  The first BOM for 2016 will be “Sweet Tooth” by Jaybird Quilts.  This is traditionally a machine sewn quilt, however, in true Quilt Fairy style, we are adapting it for English Paper Piecing. The Programme will run over 12 months and each month you will receive pre-cut papers and pre-cut fabric to complete 2 “Candy Blocks”.  The cost per month is $35.00 + postage with the exception of month one – this will be $85.00 + postage as it includes the full Pattern Book for the Quilt.
The fabrics have finally arrived and they are beautiful!  60 different Kona Solids plus Black & Charcoal make up this stunning modern quilt.  Get in quick if you would like to participate as we only have 20 available kits left for sale.

Please email me thequiltfairy@iinet.net.au if you would like to book in.

** Pop-up Shop  :  9th April, 2016**

 

The Quilt Fairy Pop-up Shop will be available 9.30am – 4.30pm at the Ascension Church Hall, 17 Spring Park Road, MIDLAND.

A full range of papers will be available, however, so that I ensure that I have everything covered, please email me with any special requests so that they will be available for you to pick up.

As we are still working on the Shopping Cart which won’t be available for a few months (it’s taking forever), please email your orders to Michelle at email address thequiltfairy.com.au and we will send your papers out to you via Australia Post.

At The Quilt Fairy, our new programme,  “The Quilt Academy” has been humming along nicely and we are seeing some gorgeous items being made during the workshops.  If you would like to be a part of “The Quilt Academy” this year, keep a watch below for when we add the new Workshops for 2016.

The Quilt Academy is an ongoing monthly workshop programme.  It may be a “make & take” workshop where your project can be completed in class and taken home the same day, or it may be a more lengthy workshop that will be run over one full and one 1/2 day.

The skill level of the workshops are suited for all levels of sewers, so if you are a beginner, please don’t be put off as thinking it looks too hard for you – we will help you through it.

As we would like to make sure that everyone receives personal attention, all workshops run by The Quilt Academy are limited to 5 attendees, depending on the difficulty of the project, this ensures that if you have any problems, we are able to help you straight away.  If we have a larger number of attendees & have filled all places, you will be placed on a waiting list and we will then run that workshop again at a later date.

A snapshot is shown below of what we are running but have a look under “Workshops” to see full details.

We are still looking at adding a Shopping Cart to our Website but this proving more difficult that I first thought, however, in the meantime please continue to email your orders to thequiltfairy@iinet.net.au or phone Michelle on 0412 306 292. We are beginning to add to our kits and pre-cut colour sorted hexies, even though some of the products shown are temporarily unavailable, they remain good examples of what you can make with Quilt Fairy Piecing Papers.  Please let me know if you are looking for something in particular – we may just have it lurking in the back room, or we are happy to cut it especially for you. Don’t forget that, English Piecing Papers and Pre Cut Hexagon Fabric Packs as well as our “New” Colour Sorted Hexagon Fabric Packs remain readily available and can be posted to you by contacting me on 0412 306 292 or emailing thequiltfairy@iinet.net.au, – please have a look at “Come & See Us” for shop for the  dates and times for our Pop-up Shop.
