February Newsletter

Good Morning to you all, I hope you are all well, grab a cuppa and have a read up on what is happening here at Fabric Sauce.

We have had a busy month so far, our first day for the month was our Farmers Wife Quilt a long group.  It was a very hot day and it just didn't feel as though the air conditioning was working, until you stepped out side!!!!.  At least we have had a little change in the weather and have had a slightly milder week. We are seeing some fantastic progress so far and it was lovely to see some of them layed out on the floor.

Farmers Wife Progress

It is very exciting to see the quilts starting to come together and they will all look so so different.  It's not to late if you would like to join us!  You will be able to see some of the blocks on our hashtag on instagram #fsfw2019qal.  Although not everyone is posting, I will try and get some more catch up photos for the hashtag next Farmers Wife Day in March.

 

This past week has been bag making week, where we have tackled the Take A Stand Bag by patterns by Annie.  The days were big but the bags all looked amazing!  I didn't manage to get photos of them all, but here are a couple that were all but finished you can check out my instagram feed for some more pics if you like.  

Next month is Running with Scissors month so please let me know if you are interested in this class as well as it is almost booked out.

 

My sit and stitch day will also be this Thursday where you can come and have a chat, cuppa and slow stitch for the day.  Let me know if you would like to attend.

 

Now for the most exciting news for the Shop we have a visiting Tutor coming in March.  Lynne Wilson will be in the shop for a one day workshop and you can choose which ever day will suit you better.  Lynne  has a wealth of experience being involved in the patchwork industry for years, she used to own Berrima Patchwork and is the XLN Fabics Rep for our area as well.  Lynne is known for her bold colour choices and will encourage you to make these choices during your class. Lynne has also just released her patterns into the US which is quite exciting for her.  She is a hard lady to tie down between trips to the US and visiting fabric stores all across NSW.  But she will be here at Fabric Sauce on the 29th & 30th March.  How exciting for us.

She will be teaching a strip day which includes many of her patterns of which you can choose to make.  Some of those include the Origami Pleated Log Cabin, Gypsy Pillow, Chevron Pillows and Everyday Tote.  I will get back to you later with your exact class requirements.  The strip day aims to bust your stash by using 2.5 inch strips!

So please RSVP to me if you would like to attend one of Lynne’s Classes.  The class will be one day only and please nominate which day would suit you better the Friday or Saturday.  I will need a security deposit to secure your place in the class.  You will need to bring your machine so I am limiting each class to 8 at this stage, so please RSVP quickly as expect these classes to fill fast.  The cost of the 1 day class will be $100.00.

 

We have received some fabulous new stock in this month so be sure to check out the new products page on our website.  Don't forget the Sale Page as well as I am constanly moving stock over there to make room for all the new stock in the shop.  It really is incredible how you have the most favourite fabric and then something else arrives and you all of a sudden have a new favourite fabric.  I guess that is how my fabric addiction works!!!

Have a great month and I will talk to you again soon.

Happy Stitching

January Newsletter

Happy New Year to you all, although January has almost gone, and it certainly did go quickly.  I only have one day of school holidays left before we start chasing that school bus again!!!

I hope you have all had some family time and stitching time this January.  I always use January to start my new projects and think about what projects I would like to have completed by the end of the year.  I do like to plan, it doesn't always happen but I do try!

We are kicking off a big year here at the shop with Thursday the 31st being our first sit and stitch day for the month.  Our Farmers Wife Quilt-a-long is progressing along, we have had lots of unpicking amongst us while we all get settled and started but hopefully we will all be going forward from here. Not every one is posting yet but if you would like to see what some of us are up to you can find our progress under the #fsfw2019qal.  

February will see our bag making kick off again

19,20 & 21st February  - Take A Stand

19,20 & 21st March  - Running with Scissors

12 March - Meshing Around

I have had lots of inquiries about classes so if you would like to come to one of these days or all 3 please contact me and we can work out a day for you.

 

29th and 30th of March will see our Tutor Lyn Wilson come and visit the shop!  It's a strip day, a great way to use up that Jelly Roll that has been thrown in the cupboard or to use up some of your scraps by cutting them into strips.  Lyn has just had her patterns realeased in America so she is fitting us into her busy schedule.  If you would like to come along please contact me and I can book you in.  We are sure to have a fabulous day and lots of fun.

 

Loads of new stock has been arriving daily as well as some awesome new patterns.  Treat yourself to a cuppa and have a browse around the website, the New Products page is a great place to start.

 

Happy Stitching

November Newsletter

Can you believe it is November already and only 33 days to Christmas!  I, for one am not one bit organised!!!  Next week, I will start decorating and that might get me in the Christmas Spirit and get ready to get some shopping organised.  I do have Fabric Sauce gift vouchers available if you know some one that would love one!

 

My stitching day has came around really quickly this month and will be on Thursday 29th November.  Please RSVP if you can make it.

 

Some exciting news for next month, it is my First Birthday as the new owner of Fabric Sauce so we will be celebrating here in the shop and also online for those of you not close by.  Keep an eye out next month for more details regarding my first Birthday Celebration. I am sure there will be lots of Champagne and Cake!!!

 

I have had some gorgeous new stock arrive over the last month

Some beautiful new books and patterns as well.

  • Splender Sampler 2 - Pat Sloan & Jane Davidson
  • Through the Years - Yoko Saito
  • Small Wonders- Serena Boffa Soda
  • Luminary Quilt Pattern by Alison Glass & Jamie Swanson
  • Radiating Circles by Free Bird Quilting Designs
  • Refraction Quilt Pattern & Templates by Lillabelle Lane

To make room for all that new stock I have also moved quite a lot of fabric to my Sale Page so make sure you check that out.  Tula Pink has been a popular addition to the Sale Page so don't miss out on some of her fabric at a great price!

If it is only 33 days to Christmas that means I have less than 40 hexagons to complete for my New Hexagon Perpetual Calendar Quilt.  I will be very excited to get to the first of January, although next year I will be stitching Farmers Wife by EPP so there will be no rest for me.

Happy Stitching

Sale Page

Yesterday I spent a lot my day organizing the shop and I found lots of bolts and some precuts that needed clearing out.

So get on and check out my Sale Page, some of it has already sold quite quickly!  I have been this morning further reducing stock that is already on the Sale Page to 70% off.  Some big savings to be had, so if you are looking for backings get on and check it out. Some bolts are selling as low as $6.60 a metre and some are even less than that.

Are you looking at making a Jelly Roll Rug, I have some of those reduced as well, its a great opportunity to buy now.  Jelly Rolls also make wonderful backings.  Think about what quilts you are making and grab a bargain ahead of time.

October Newsletter

October has been racing away for me.  We have been busy in the shop making bags using Patterns by Annie.com.  They have been loads of fun.  I have just made the Ruler Wrap which I am extremely happy with.  It was a big project but oh so rewarding.

Ruler Wrap  Pattern by Annie.com

 

Stock has been rolling in on a weekly basis and the shop is looking spectacular.  Spotted by Zen Chic has been very popular and I have the full range of that as well as a full range of Vintage 1930's florals by Washington Street Studio.  These can all be found online.

Spotted by Zen Chic

Again this month I have added a lot of fabrics to the Sale Page some of the Tula Pink fabrics I have added have all but disappeared.  So keep an eye out there as I am always adding bits and pieces.  I have to make room for more stock so I will be adding more in there over the next couple of weeks.

 

My stitching day will be on this coming Thursday the 25th October, some come along and have a stitch and enjoy some great company.

 

Happy Stitching

September Newsletter

Wow, what can I say? The bags by Annie.com have taken the shop by storm.  We have had lots of classes here at the shop and all the bags are looking fabulous.  This month we have covered the Ditty Bags and Project Bags.  Annie's patterns are just fantastic they have step by step instructions and each bag is finished so professionally and neat.

We have had a great variety in fabic choosen with the bags.  They all look fantastic and will also be very useful as well.  The Ditty Bag pattern has 3 different sizes included in the pattern and the Project Bag has 4 different sizes included, these are the sizes as shown in the photo below.  The projcet bags have been made with one of our new ranges of fabric called Boho Meadow by Dashwood Studio.  It is my new favourite range at the moment.

You may have seen on Instagram/Facebook that Fabric Sauce has extended its range of Aurifil Threads.  We are now stocking 50wt 200m spools of colours.  Perfect to match up with your next project, if you are ordering online and need some help matching your colour just give me a call or send me an email.  I am happy to help you match it up if you are not sure. 

I have been busy adding new stock and moving stock into the Sale Category so we sure to keep your eye on the ON SALE page, I added quite a bit of stock last night. So check it out and grab yourself a bargain.

I only have a couple of spots left for the Jelly Roll Day on the 15th September where we are making the Introduction to the Jelly Roll Rug.  Please contact me if you are interested in coming along.

This month's Stitching Day is on Thursday 27th September, 10am to 4pm.  Bring along your stitching project and come and have a lovely day.

I am so excited about some of the fabrics that will be trickling into the store over the next couple of months, I am sure with Quilt Market in Houston just around the corner we will be seeing some gorgeous patterns and fabrics being released. It's an exciting time of year.

I hope you are all well and finding some of that "me" time to sit and stitch.
