January in Melbourne is traditionally a time for watching sport, particularly tennis, but January also means “Fabric Frolic” time for quiltaholics.
Each year the Frolic seems to get bigger and better, with more opportunities to catch a bargain and win great prizes along the way. Keen shoppers, who manage to visit every shop in the Frolic, even have a chance to win the major prizes by getting their passport stamped at each shop. You will find the full details on the Fabric Frolic website.
As we are an “odd” shop, more a wholesale outlet than a retail outlet, we are not directly involved in the “Frolic” but we have contributed prizes for the “in-store” activities.
We have also packaged up an exclusive thread set, and free pattern deal, for Palm Beach Quilting, one of the Aurifil retailers participating in the Frolic.
The staff at Always Quilting designed the Posy Pocket Hanger pattern to be embroidered with these pretty sets of Cotton Mako’ 12 threads, and they deserve a special thank you for each stitching a sample to show the various ways the design can be embellished.
The pattern is an exclusive bonus when you purchase one of the thread sets during the Frolic.
So pop along to Palm Beach Quilting to purchase a set of threads, and get a pattern to make you own hanger for your sewing room or daughter’s bedroom door.
Mark your diary, the Frolic starts on Friday 18th January.
Don’t miss out on the fun!
