June 2012 Newsletter
Welcome to the second newsletter of the year. We hope you are all surviving the cold weather and keeping cosy and warm indoors. It has been lovely to see some new faces the past few weeks, all stocking up on winter projects to stitch by the fire at night.
We’ve had some more pretty fabrics trickle through, some lovely spots and stripes (as seen in the photos below). Pictured sitting on the red and blue ticking is Milo our shop mouse, he was made last week using a pattern that we found in a magazine. Let’s just say he has taught us the meaning of patience, laughter and mistakes. We have learnt a lot from making Milo, he was a lot of fun and we have a few more sitting on the table at work to complete.
We have just compiled our class list for term three, we will have limited spaces in these classes so if you are interested be in quick! All details will be posted on our blog site next week, www.calicodreamsnz.wordpress.com.
Class List term 3
*Country Cushion Thurs July 26th
*Needle n’ pins pincushion Wed Aug 8th
*Cupcake pincushion (from a pattern by Cindy Taylor Oates) Thurs 23rd Aug
*Floral Bouquet (stitched heart) Wed 5th September
*Christmas tags & cards, date to be confirmed.
If anyone has any idea of what they would like to learn as a class please give us a call or drop us an email at email@example.com, we will do our best to help you or find someone who can.
We also do one on one teaching, so if you or someone you know is interested in learning how to cross stitch/stitch we can arrange a time that suits to do this. Pictured is one of our lovely cross stitches we have for sale at the studio, this is of the Christchurch cathedral, it comes as a kit and can be stitched on aida cloth or linen, a lovely memory to hang on the wall once complete.
Anyway we must dash and get some more stitching done before the day ends.
