Managed to spend a bit of time in the garden, finally finished my circle quilt, about time, l have taught 5 classes and next class is scheduled for Saturday January 19th, l have a couple of places, shoot me off a message if you’d like to join us. Also caught up with girlfriends for movies, lunches or cuppas and managed a few day trips. 

 

I am well rested, bring on 2019 l say.

Pencil it in, it’s on Saturday march the 2nd. If you have a quilt you’d like to enter in the show l would be very grateful. I will be adding information about the show regularly, but if you have any questions please shoot me off a message,

 

This year we have 2 guest designers, the lovely Di Ford has agreed to come to show and display some of her quilts. We are also lucky to have Gail Pan display her work. Well worth a visit to see what both these ladies have been working on.

 

We will also have our usual trade tables and outside Market Stalls and of course the Quilt Café run by the CFA will be offering sausages and Dev teas throughout the day.

 

Cost is $5 to visit, every cent we collect on the day is donated to the Monbulk Fire Brigade.

 

So please pencil it in, if you like Mrs Martin’s Quilt Shop page on Facebook you will be kept up to date with all the news leading up to the show.
