I’ve got a good excuse for being a day late with this post!
We spent Tuesday packing Aurifil threads for delivery to retailers at the Australasian Quilt Convention. By the time I completed the deliveries today most of the stands were almost complete and it was looking exciting.
You will find a good assortment of Cotton Mako’ 28 (for quilting), 40 (for patchwork piecing) & 50 (for applique) at the Needles & Pins stand.
Miss Sampson’s Drapery has a selection of rich dark Cotton Mako’ 28 colours that will work beautiful with the Jinny Beyer fabrics, and designs, that you will find on the stand.
By the time I reached them, the girls at The Quilted Crow had their stand looking good.
I dropped off Cotton Mako’ 28, made up into Collections of colours that they had especially selected to work with their wool applique designs.
I also dropped off a Cotton Mako’ 50 display at the Elm Grove Patchwork stand, so be sure to stop by to re-stock your thread box.
As I walked through the convention centre I saw some of our other Aurifil retailers busy setting up their stands.
- Ballarat Patchwork
- Somerset Patchwork & Quilting
- Millrose Quilting & Gallery
I also stopped for a chat with Lisa Walton, of Dyed & Gone to Heaven. Her new book, “Beautiful Building Block Quilts” is a must have for every patchworker’s library.
There is so much to see at the Quilt Convention this weekend, so do have fun and don’t forget to visit our Aurifil retailers.
