The Quilters Circle has a Temporary Home during August 2013

August 9, 2013

During August, The Quilters Circle will be moving across the road to the Midland Ascension Church.

As the Federal Election was announced last weekend, the AEC (Australian Electoral Commission) has moved into the Church Hall for the next 5 weeks to enable local residents to enrol or to pre-cast their Vote in the Election.

The Church has been very accommodating and we will still be able to have our Quilters Circle during this time, although it will be held in the Church.  We will still meet at the same time : Saturday afternoon 10th & 24th August from 1.30pm-4.30pm.

See you there!!

New Home for The Quilt Fairy

October 28, 2012

The Quilt Fairy now has a shop! Yeah…about time I hear you say.

With the merging of The Quilt Fairy and Lavender Quilt it was time to have a shop front presence. A lovely old premises in Midland was chosen with lots of room, light and character very much in keeping with quilting and quilters.

At this point in time the shop is open to the public Thursday through to Sunday. Monday to Wednesday is reserved for quilt groups and classes.

The address is:

Shop 7, 1 Old Great Northern Highway, Midland 6056

The address can be a bit tricky for first time visitors as Old Great Northern Highway runs off Great Eastern Highway in Midland. The easiest way is to head for the Midland Town Hall clock as we are directly opposite facing west.

We have added a lot of new stock….

In our fabric range we have Jelly Rolls from gorgeous Bali fabrics, a new range of Bali Pops and pre-cut 2 1/2″ Strips, 100’s of pre-cut 5″ squares, colour sorted and packaged into the perfect gift for yourself or a friend including Civil War & 1930’s as well as 100’s of new fat 1/4’s.

We have added a range of circles to our piecing papers and don’t forget that our famous hexagons range in size from 1/2″ to 3 1/2″, but don’t forget about the octagons, diamonds, triangles or our popular Dresden Plates. In the fabric packs to compliment our papers, we have added Tumblers and colour sorted hexagons. Our most popular range of Quilt As You Go Hexagon Table Centres have also had an injection of new and stunning fabrics including some very classy Christmas Fabrics.

Last but not least, we have added Clover Back Needles to our notions, these hand needles are amazing to use and glide through the fabric effortlessly – they are just beautiful to sew with and I guarantee that once you have used them, you will never use anything else.

So pop in and see us to say Hi, we would love to see you. Opening times are :-

Monday & Tuesday – Closed for private quilt groups to visit

Wednesday – 6.30pm – 9.00pm
“Hexagon Heaven” Hand Piecing Group
$12.00

Wednesday – 6.30pm – 9.00pm
