Greetings from Country Dawn Quilting

Hello Everyone

Well it's almost showtime! The Whangarei Patchworkers and Quilters Club biennial show is only a few sleeps away now.

This show is always well worth a visit - the variety and standard of expertise by the members is so inspirational!

We're excited to be there as one of the merchants and this show we'll have our friendly and knowledgeable Handi Quilter demonstrator Richard Stewart on the stand Friday and Saturday.

Richard will have two longarm Handi Quilter machines operating - the HQ Sweet Sixteen (a sit-down longarm quilting machine) and the latest addition to the Handi Quilter family, the HQ Simply Sixteen (a stand-up longarm quilting machine). Try them both, see how easy and what fun it is to quilt on these machines!

Along with the machines we will also be demonstrating ruler work with the Handi Quilter Rulers and Templates ... and Show Specials will apply to any purchases made across the Handi Quilter range!

We will also have a range of our domestic sewing/quilting/craft machines available to view and test drive - Janome, Husqvarna, Elna and Brother with Show Specials or Bonus Packages also applying to many of the models.

Plus a selection of our latest fabrics, pre-cuts, notions along with fabric and kit specials ... something for everyone!

The Northern Quilt Shop Hop 2018 Click Here To Register Online

Join in the fun and be part of the Northern Quilt Shop Hop from 12th to 26th May 2018.

During this fortnight each shop will be open Monday to Saturday (no Sunday opening) between 10.00am and 4.00pm (or longer if their regular hours are longer!) to make it convenient for you to hop around them all, collect your blocks and simply enjoy all the fun each shop has planned for you during this time. You can look forward to exhibitions, demonstrations, specials and much much more.

Get a group of your quilting friends together and make this a fun journey.

Registration fee $60.00 - for this you will receive sufficient fabric and instructions to make a quilt top (approx. 36 square), excluding borders and binding. Each shop has their own requirements for finishing their design which will be an extra cost.

Each shop participating has designed a quilt and you simply choose your favourite to collect. At each shop you will pick up one block of your chosen design. To see all the quilts visit our Blog here

Participants need to buy their passport from the shop whose quilt they want to make.

If there is more than one design that catches your eye, you are more than welcome to purchase two passports (or more) and collect blocks for both designs!!

The only rule you must personally visit each participating shop to collect your blocks.

Hand your full passport into the final shop you visit and go into a draw for fabulous prizes.

Registration payment for your Passport for our quilt can either be made in person, by internet banking, or credit card here online. Your Passport will be posted to you if you can't come into the shop personally.
