For those of you wanting to further enjoy your issues of Vignette you can come and share four Sundays this year with me at one of my favourite local shops, Foothills Fabric and Threads! Each of the four Sundays will go from 10am to 3pm and will be held as the new issues come out (March, June, Sept, Dec). The first Sunday will be the 6th of March:
We will be having a relaxing bunch of Sundays (with stitching and good food involved, of course!) working on projects that feature in the magazine. You might like to come along and work on 'Vignette in Stitches', the mystery 'block of the issue' quilt, or maybe you'd like to start the hexagon quilt coming in Issue 2:
This is a really fun quilt to make and is all handpieced (all the bits you need are stocked at Foothills Fabric and Threads), if you like you can add in the stitchery blocks that I have or keep them plain. The choice is yours, but I will be there to get you started and guide you through to completion:
So you can choose to come each time and work on an ongoing project from the magazine, a short project, different projects each time, or to do a little handwork and enjoy the stories that go with producing a magazine and my other adventures, as well as enjoying some of the recipes from the issues (first class I will bring my very own organic home made lemonade to enjoy!). Of course each issue has a little cooking and I can tell you the issue two recipes are yummy!:
(Well, one shouldn't waste good food even if it's for a photo shoot!)
I will also be using one of my favourite new ranges of fabric in this issue, 'Where The Wind Blows' by Melanie from Melly and Me. So, if you're keen to use the same fabrics for the projects that I have you can pick up your fat quarter pack at Foothills:
If you're interested in joining me, contact Foothills Fabric and Threads for further details (03 9754 6166), or to sign up. Places are LIMITED so book early to avoid disappointment.
I hope I get to see you there!

P.S. I will be letting you know shortly where else you can see me this year, there are some really great retreats planned including something very exciting (I see palm trees, white sands, cocktails by the pool, and passports...mmmmm).....
