The Volunteers and Helpers

Fluttering Quilts in the Breeze and The Winners

Hi Everyone,

Finally, it happened, the 3rd Annual Stonestead Quilt Festival on Sunday 13th February, the day dawned a little cloudy but as the day progressed it became a beautiful sunny day, and was a huge success with 75 quilts on display, an increase on last year.

I don’t need to tell you that this type of event relies on all those volunteers, friends and local businesses who freely give of their time and resources to make the day the success it is and we are very appreciative of this.

This car quilt was a great success and a big thank you goes to Toni Waygood for allowing us to borrow it for the day.

I have been a little slow getting the placegetters names published, but didn’t want to do that until I had spoken to them personally and congratulated them, and like all quilters they live very¬† busy lives so it took awhile to make contact.

So here goes

1st Place called ‘Old Friends’ by Camilla Watson.

2nd Place to Lorna Newsome for ‘Village Green’

3rd Place to Judy¬† Betts for ‘Fruhlingsmorgen’

Stonestead Challenge.

The criteria for this was the wallhanging had to depict what a Devonshire Tea at Stonestead meant to them using the fabric enclosed in the challenge pack.

Judges Choice Ronelle Serfontein Letter J

Viewers Choice Robyn Burch for ‘Summer at Stonestead.Letter B

We have lots of pictures of the quilts and the day and we shall be publishing these regularly over the next weeks, keep coming back and have look, I shall endevour to have the name of the quilt and quilter too.

So until next time

The Exciting Day Draws Near and Vendors too.

Hi Everyone,

Well, after the tree issue yesterday all is well now and Kevin is readying Stonestead for the Outdoor Quilt Festival, he has been busy tidying the gardens and mowing lawns with special attention to where the quilts are being hung.

We have received confirmation that Glen from Wellington Sewing Services will be with us along with a range of sewing machines and lots of advice, so go along and see him.

We have also heard that Peter the Scissor Sharpener will also be with us, so don’t forget to bring your scissors along to be sharpened, might be an idea to have your name on them somewhere too, to eliminate confusion.

Don’t forget you can also have a Devonshire Tea with a variety of Home Made Scones and Jam too, Carol and Rebecca & Hannah will also be there to look after you.

I have heard from Lee one of our volunteers to say the long range weather forecast is rain except on Sunday, but if by some chance it is a rainy day, don’t worry as the Quilt Festival will be held the following Sunday 13th February. Let’s hope this isn’t the case!If in doubt just phone and we shall help you. Tel: 04 526 2517

Come and say hello to us and we hope you have a wonderful day.
