a new begining

As most of you know by now,Raelene  has moved on and Estelle is the sole propritor of craftquarters now. Not much else has changed except for a few add on stafe.

 This smiley is Jill, she has been into quilting for about 10 years but has loved handstitching for much longer. All aspectso fo hand sewing excites her. Estelle and Jill  meet at the recent rawson retreat and instantly bonded. something about the same crazy sence of humour! She is the nicest person and would love for you to come meet her and say hello. Lets make her feel welcome to our crafty family.
This lady with the antlers is Chris, well we could write a book on chris but we will only stick to craft. lol
Chris is a traditional hand quilter with 25plus years experience, so there isnt much you cant find out about from her!
she loves embrodery and needle turn just to name a few.
Apparently Estelle offered her a seat 12 years ago when she had a brokenlet and they have been firm friends ever since.
So if you havnt already come in share a cuppa and get to know the girls, they will inspire you.

Last night our surprise party for Estelles 50th whent off with a bang. 
 She had no idea and was very surprised.
She thought this was her pressie and made a good show of liking it very much.
 This was when she saw her quilt and was told the story of how it was made. Tears of joy!
The finished quilt! It will hang in the shop for a week or two and then it will go home to be loved by Estelle.
She was very touched indeed.
Thank you to all for making this special quilt for a special lady.
Thank you to Raelene and Gwenda for all your hard work, and keeping the secret.

This message came into my in box today from Estelle and Raelene,

"Could you please put a big thank you to all the people that were so
worried about the shop we KooWeeRup
was evacuated last night.

Estelle, Roger, my girlfriend and I rushed but to KWR to lift all our
fabrics and everything up off the floors to high
tables in case of the expected floods.
As it turned out KWR was pretty much spared from the floods, just lots
of water about.

It was an excellent cardio workout for us so it was well worth the effort."

I hope everyone at KWR escaped the floods and that your all ok,
See ya all this week at the shop
stay safe and dry.
