Paris? Yes please!

Lorraine has been really busy creating new quilt designs with the oh-so-inspiring fabric we've had in!

This is "Paris Holiday" - a new kit made and designed by Lorraine.

The blocks are all taken from a panel by Lorelei Designs.

The completed quilt has 3-dimensional flowers on it and costs $69.50 including all fabric for the top and binding, pre-made iron-on bias and beads for the flower centres.

Come into the shop to see it in person, or drop into the Ballan Quilt Exhibition this coming Saturday and Sunday where it will be on display as part of the French themed exhibit. The team are really well-known for their beautiful displays. You can email Megan for more information ( ).

The first Sunday of each month is Market Day in Gisborne. We had such a busy, busy day. Not only were the indoor and outdoor markets on, but the Gisborne Festival was also on....rides, sideshows, procession, fun run, motorcycle and car show.... you get the drift.

It attracted lots of visitors looking for a warm drink and shelter from a light drizzle.

Around 14 "bikeys" came in for coffee and cake. While I was making the coffees, I noticed camera flashes going off. I said "Are you guys taking photos of yourself in the fabric shop?" and they were!! They said: "These photos are going into our newsletter".

Later that day we received an email with photos they took. How cool are these? The guys all thought it was hilarious they found themselves in a very "girly" shop!! LOL!!
Members of Brunswick Harley Owners Club, it was nice to meet you. Thanks for the pics.
