Newsletter Update – Sept/Oct, 2015

Hi everyone – we thought a quick update on where we’re at with our Summer School bookings and classes would be helpful to you all!

By the way, we also have LOTS and LOTS of new fabrics in stock – more details to follow on these in another newsletter shortly, but in the meantime they are gradually being loaded onto our website so keep an eye open for them there.

Public Holiday this Friday and early closure Saturday

Just to confirm that our shop is CLOSED this Friday 2nd October as this is a Public Holiday in Victoria in preparation for the AFL Football Grand Final. Of course our website is still available for you to place any orders!

Also, this Saturday 3rd October, our shop will be closing at 1pm. We have stayed open during the Grand Final the last couple of years, but this year we have decided to surrender to the sporting culture and close early, as it seems very few people shop during this time. However, if you’re desperate for a shopping fix then all is not lost! Visit us this weekend at the following exhibition:

Exhibition this weekend – Don’t forget!  

NOTY (North of the Yarra) Quilters are holding their Exhibition on Sat 3rd and Sun 4th October 10.00am-4.00pm at Eltham Community Centre, 801 Main Road Eltham. Sewn and Quilted are one of the shops at this exhibition, and we hope to see you there!

Beginner’s Course

No beginner’s courses in Term 4, as it’s such a disjointed couple of months with Melbourne Cup weekend plus with Christmas looming everyone gets busy. But if you are keen to attend our very popular Beginner’s Course, we will be back in February with our next set of classes.
