Craft & Quilt Fair returns to Launceston in 2011

Quite a reshuffle of dates set for many Craft & Quilt Fairs for 2011 were announced at a special meeting for Exhibitors during the Craft & Quilt Fair presently being held in Melbourne at "Jeff's Shed".  With the aim of streamlining the sequence of the Shows to make it easier for travel and other considerations, there have been some major changes in the schedule.  I shall endeavour to add the complete list to my website over the weekend.

Launceston will once again host the 2011 Show at the Silverdome and a change of dates too. 
Now to be held April 29th to May 1st 2011. 

I am quite sure this change will be well-received by those living in the Northern parts of Tassie.  Launceston is more centrally located with the hope of attracting an increased attendance from Tassie's small population.

Newcastle Craft & Quilt Fair has been moved from February to August 18-21 in 2011. 

This should suit Sydney craftlovers better since it was decided to move the
Sydney Craft Expo to Rosehill Racecourse on March 10 -13 in 2011.
I know this venue will be a very popular change from Homebush. 

Other changes have been moving the Townsville CraftExpo to July 14-17 rather than in October because the climate is more accommodating at that time of the year; a CraftExpo has been added for Auckland (NZ) from March 17-20 too.

Full Details of all these changes will be posted onto my website just asap.

In the meantime, come see us this weekend at
Stand A11 at Melbourne's Craft & Quilt Fair
being held in Jeff's Shed.  Saturday has extended hours until 7pm

When in Tasmania earlier this month, we stayed a night with friends who live on the magnificent Tamar River.
The "boys" were meant to putt-putt across the waters to an historic pub on the other side, just to have a drink and to say they'd done it!  Wasn't to be as there was a hold up in the boat's preparation, but it will happen upon our next visit. Isn't this photo great showing the reflections of the scenery and you'll note the pub over on the right hand side; the building with the red roof?

Several new products have been added to the website this week so please check out What's New?  One of which is "Pinmoor" the first and only tool of its kind to help anchor your quilt and prevent sore fingers from pinning using safety pins.  Pinmoor uses regular pins and as they are soft, flexible, small solid tubing into which a regular quilting pin may be inserted easily, rather than using safety pins, you'll have no more sore fingers from the tedious task of pinning your quilt.  View a demo of using Pinmoor here.
