Hello Fellow Stitchers

I hope you have all had a great holidays. We have been closed over the holiday season to give us time to enjoy the school holidays with our young families. I can’t believe how fast the holidays have flown by. Unfortunately there was very little time for stitching or creating so we are looking forward to getting back in to the swing of things.

There are currently two spaces left for our block of the month  Journey of a Quilter by Leanne’s House. This is at the very reasonable price of $35 a month for ten months. This can be viewed on our blog or our facebook page.http://www.facebook.com/CalicoDreamsNZ.

We also have the above kit at $93.50, Meadowlark by Gail Pan. Using Lynette Anderson fabrics. This kit is available now. It is a small wall quilt done in beautiful muted blues, browns and creams.


If you are into pretty then take a look at Pretty Dresses wall hanging kit $97.50. This is created in pretty greens pinks and white and would look stunning in any little girls or not so little girls bedroom. This sample was stitched by Jane and it now hangs in her daughters room.

We have also had new fabrics arrive which will be out on the shelves soon so if you have a little bit of spare time call in for a chat or a look around. We would love to see you all and will be back soon to let you know what else has arrived in store. Above is a sample of a quilt backing fabric (fernbacker), its 270cm wide and comes in this lovely colour which will blend nicely with most other fabrics. Also showing is two new fabrics that have arrived in the last week, incense & peppermint, beautiful florals at $28/m.

We hope you have had the chance to sit and create and would love to see or hear what you have been up to. We are back to our normal hours from Wednesday 30th January. Our hours are Wednesday to Friday 9am to 3pm or by appointment.

The Rakaia Community Craft Group are also planning on holding their monthly craft group on the second Thursday of the month at the church hall opposite the Rakaia Mobil Garage from 10am till 2pm. All are welcome to come and go as suits your day. Any enquiries ring Julie on 3020783 or 0276342525.

Well take care everyone. We hope you find the time to sit and relax with a little bit of stitching. Hope to see you all soon.

Kind regards

Kelly and Julie
