August 4 2011 Quilting Newsletter


Hi all, another screamer of a week and Iím only getting to the newsletter today. Sorry about its lateness. Iíve been a busy bee with Quilt Valuations on Tuesday. Iím not an accredited Quilt Valuer, but I help out with the administration of the quilt valuation process on the day. Itís a very interesting morning, seeing all the quilts and hearing the comments.

After the 2011 Floods in Queensland, itís never been more apparent that having your special quilts valued is definitely worth the effort. Youíd be surprised what your quilts are worth. Iíve heard a number of stories and seen a few quilts that were lost during the floods, only to be found downstream and in unrepairable condition. Heart breaking really.

On Wednesday night I had the pleasure of attending a concert by the Grimethorpe Colliery Band. This is the band that featured in the movie Brassed Off about 15 years ago. Wow, what a night. My husband is a bandie (band instrument player) and he plays the Euphonium. It was a truly magnificent concert and we came away with a very big smile on our faces.

I posted an article about sewing machine needles last week. I thought it was timely to talk about sewing machine needles and how important it is to have sharp needles. We often forget to renew what is the most important tool in our quilting toolbox. So hereís the link to that article: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art172584.asp

Pop over to the forum and have your say. Hereís the link to the quilters forum: http://forums.bellaonline.com/ubbthreads.php?ubb=postlist&Board=43

Thatís all from me for this week. I do again, apologise for the lateness of this newsletter. Will do better next week. Stay well and happy and keep those fingers busy.
Cheerio for now
