Faeries In My Garden at the Show

With seven shows now under our belt, we are well and truly into the year!

Newcastle was a very promising start, with many of our existing customers and also many new people visiting our stall. Thank you to everyone.

The Australasian Quilt Convention, held in the beautiful, world heritage-listed Melbourne Exhibition building in Carlton Gardens, was fairly buzzing with excitement, happy faces, and new ideas. We had a double table there, and were very pleased with the response of our customers to our newest designs. *Gift of the Month* Club was by far the most well-loved new item presented on our stall at this show, and we are still reeling from the wonderful response we received. Thank you to everyone who visited our stall. We’ll certainly be back next year!

The third show, on our way home to Brisbane, was the inaugural “Craftfest” held at Homebush in Sydney. This, too, was well-patronized, and we presented our brand new “Circus” quilts as the new designs in our Baby Range.

The Craft and Quilt Fair in Perth was a wonderful event. The textile arts display was amazing. We presented “Camelot” for the first time, and received very positive feedback.

A brand new show, the Textile Art Fesitval, was held here in our hometown of Brisbane from May 21 – 29. We hope to mount a completely different display there next year, so keep this one in mind for some creative ideas and lots of new materials to make them!

The biggest show of the year, the Craft and Quilt Fair in Darling Harbour, was another great event. Thank you to all our loyal customers who visited us, and purchased from our two stalls. Our new little “Noah’s Little Troupe” quilt was finished on the plane on the way to the show, and caused quite a splash, you could say!

Our most recent show was Melbourne, in late July, and this was a wonderful event. We presented “The Needlewoman’s Cottage” for the first time, and were delighted with the response. We have a rest from shows until Brisbane at the end of the year in October (21st – 25th).

We are holding a special Christmas Market and *Gift of the Month* 2010 launch on 6th and 7th November this year. We’ll keep you posted in Newsletters.
