June 10 2009 Quilting Newsletter


Hi everyone, I’m terribly late with this newsletter, my apologies. I had a very big day yesterday and just didn’t have the energy to sit and chat with you last night. The reason I had such a busy day is that we had the launch of our Sisters of Stitch craft group at the regional Library in my town. We have started this group as a free to join, free to attend craft group for anyone who stitches with a needle. The reason we can offer this group for free is that the library (a council facility) is happy to hire their rooms out at no cost to non-for-profit groups like ours. We even had the local newspaper attend who took some great photos that will be published next week.

It is very heartening to see the attendance of about 40 lovely ladies. It’s very apparent to us that there is certainly a need for home-bound women to be able to attend in the local area, a friendly and free group where they can simply just sit and stitch with for a few hours in the day.

It really was a lovely day, with lovely people, lovely food (yum yum) and just a lovely camaraderie that is infectious.

You may be interested to read the interview I posted last Sunday with a lovely lady Ula Lenz. You’ve probably already seen her website as her name pops up a lot when you search for “free patterns”. Anyway, here’s the link if you’d like to read about Ula and what motivates her.
http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art1124.asp . On the forum there’s a request for a manual for a certain sewing machine. Here’s the link if you think you might be able to help: http://forums.bellaonline.com/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=527292#Post527292

I received an email from a reader this week looking for labels for her quilts, so I’ve surfed a bit and found these three sites for you that you might find useful. Here’s the links to the three sites.

Well, that’s my newsletter for this week. Just a postscript to the bushfires that we had here in Australia at the beginning of the year. Would you believe that there’s been huge snow falls there recently and some very eerie photos have been posted showing the completely burnt out bush, covered in snow. Most unusual.

Cheerio folks, speak with you next week.
