I can almost share my new pattern with you…

Drawing diagrams and writing instructionsI’ve been working on a new pattern, a “Creative Card” that will be available soon.  At the moment it is being tested, and as soon as possible, I will send it off to my wonderful distributors, Creative Abundance.

I really enjoy drawing diagrams, but I find writing clear, concise instructions a little harder.  I’m usually pretty wordy.  Keeping all of my instructions to one single page was hard, even for a simple project like this one, (I’m not telling you what it is yet, but can reveal that the main ingredient is delicious felt).  Hopefully I have been brief and precise about the right things, and elaborated enough on the things that most need it.
Lunch at The Mill Cottage.

Last Friday, I went with some friends, for a day trip to the divine Millrose Cottage, (Quilting and Gallery) which is, I think, one of the most delightful patchwork shops in Victoria.  We lunched at the cafe next door, The Mill Cottage.  My exciting news is that Millrose are now going to stock my patterns, and have several samples of mine to put on display, so if you ever drop in there, keep your eye out for some Matching Pegs goodies.
Do you have a favourite Patchwork/Quilting shop?

  1. Hi Claire
    I’m a big fan of Emma’s Ballarat Patchwork. There is also Gail’s Patchwork Emporium down the road in Sebastopol which suffered the sadness of a fire almost two years ago but is up and running and welcoming customers as was the good old days.
    Millrose is lovely and well worth a visit, but I’d also invite anyone that has taken the trouble, to do the extra 30kms and come and visit Emma and Gail as well.
    I look forward to finding out what this little Creative Card is going to bring

  2. I was delighted to see them and your samples at MillRose Quilting when I was at a bloggers meet at the shop today. Congratulations
