This wonderful chest of Drawers was delivered to the shop this week.
It is the new, updated, “full” selection of Aurifil Cotton Mako’.
This chest holds 252 small spools of Cotton Mako’, that is one spool of every colour in the range, and it is available configured in each of the four thread weights.
The chest is beautifully designed, with a cover to protect the drawers.
Once the cover is removed, and the chest is laid flat on the table, the drawers can be opened or removed to access all the threads
Our only “complaint”was that the chest lacked handles to make it easy to carry to our friendship group meetings and workshops, but as it weighs over 6kg we realised that handles would probably not work.
So, with some lateral thinking, we quickly solved the transport problem by making a quilted tote bag. The Chest of Drawers is now easy to take out for show and tell at our next sewing day.
You will have to call back in a week or so to download a pattern for the bag.
This week, at Always Quilting, we have been busy packing for the Australian Quilt Market , the wholesale trade show being held in Sydney next week, so I had time to make the bag but not to write a pattern.
PS: We will include our free Tote Bag pattern with every order for a Full Selection Chest of Drawers.
