What a Great Day

Hi Everyone

A very quick update before the photographs of the quilts become available on Sunday

Through your generosity we raised approximately $1000.00 for Te Omanga Hospice, this is a remarkable achievement, thank you so much

Kevin and I took the money down to the hospice yesterday and now we await the official count!

We had about 500 visitors to look at the quilts so were thrilled with the turn out especially as there was a lot on that weekend, we are sorry if you were too late to vote but we were under a time constraint, not least of all me having to print the certificates!!

I shall post the photographs as soon as I get them

Many thanks

Kevin and Yvonne

Not Long Now

Hi Everyone

Not long now, just 8 sleeps and it will be the Outdoor Quilt Festival, we can hardly believe that it almost upon us, this is a reminder to get those registrations in, we can take them up to Tuesday 3rd February, so if you can’t get out to Sawmillers, you can always scan the registrations and email to us at enquiries@sawmillersquiltery.co.nz then when you bring your entry out no later than lunchtime on Saturday 7th February you can pay then, the reason we want the registrations in earlier than the quilts is so that it is entered in the catalogue and we need to get them to the printers

All the details for entry are on here, just click on the right hand side of the page and follow the directions, I also have forms in the shop if you want some

Should the weather be poor, there will be a posting on Facebook and both blogs

The Official Greeters are going for their pre festival hair do on Thursday so call in and say hello to them on Sunday, they will probably be towards the rear of Sawmillers otherwise they trip the helpers up!!

Until Sunday, have a happy week and don’t forget the Challenge all the entries will be going to the Neo Natal Unit

Quilt Registration for 7th Annual Outdoor Quilt Festival

Hi Everyone

I have heard from various visitors to Sawmillers that some are experiencing difficulties with downloading and printing off the Registration Forms, all you have to do is go to

http://www.stonestead.wordpress.com

Click on the registration form on the right hand side of the page and that will take you to the Registration Page where you will click on the form itself, just print it off and fill it in, if however you are experiencing difficulties just contact me either by email: enquiries@sawmillersquiltery.co.nz or telephone: 04 526 2517 and I can assist you

Don’t forget the challenge this is really a good cause as all the quilts will be going to the Neo Natal Unit, and also remember that we have a category for under 16 years this is a great way to encourage our young people to start their quilting journey

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me, and let’s make this a great year for Te Omanga Hospice

Until next time, Happy Quilting

 

The 2015 Stonestead Outdoor Quilt Festival

“The time has come the Walrus said to think of many things”

Hi Everyone,

I am sure there are quite a few of you who recognise the above saying from Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll, and we can apply this to the annual event Stonestead Devonshire Tea House holds each year, so that means that the Outdoor Quilt Festival will be held on Sunday 8th February 2015 ( weather permitting )

So the time is now to decide what you would like to finish so that it can be entered, the registration form will be available on this site from Friday 28th November onwards

So let’s make this a great day and also be successful for Te Omanga Hospice who received all the proceeds

Until next time, Happy Planning!
