Hello to you all on this chilly winter's day. I keep on stoking the fire but I don't seem to be able to get warm today!
Firstly, I would like to Thank you for your patience while I have been updating the website, it has taken me a little while to get it organised but the benefits are so so good. You will have noticed that the opening slides are new as are the Category and Subcategory Photo's. Denise from Five hours West has done an amazingly good job with the website Photo's. So Thank you Denise! But most importantly you can now find your fabrics by colour and type and also by designer. Which will make navagating around the website so much easier. So if you are looking for a red piece of fabric for instance, you can just click on Categories and then Fabrics by Colour and type and then pick and red fabrics. This will list all the Pink & Red fabrics available on the website. Great right!!!!
If for instance you wanted to find a particular fabric by designer you would click on Categories then Fabrics by Designer. So Simple!!!
Keep your eye on that Sale Page as I am adding fabric in there all the time to make way for New Fabrics that are coming in! I just added another 10 a while ago!
I have a couple of things happening in the shop this month Firstly is my Sit and Stitch Day which will be held on Thursday 26th July 10am to 4pm. RSVP is essential to secure a place around the table.
Also I am teaching a Bags by Annie day on Saturday 21st July starting at 9am. The cost of the day will be $90 and you will go home with a beautifully finished Stash and Dash Bag. Please call or email me to secure your place as it will be limited to 8 places. I am looking at running a back up date on the 4th August if needed. Once you register you will receive more details then.
Don't forget to Save the date for the 15th September for the National Jelly Roll day more details will follow next month.
Hello, I hope this newsletter finds you all well and managing to keep warm, especially after the bitterly cold weekend that has just passed here in Southern NSW, it certainly was a great weekend for inside activities.
Firstly, Save the date for the 15 September 2018. It is National Jelly Roll day and I am going to be planning something fun for that day so I will post more information as the date gets closer, but please write it on the calendar so you can keep that day spare for some Jelly Roll fun!
Secondly, I am running an end of Financial year Sale that starts midnight on Tuesday 19th June and will end on midnight June 30! I am offering 20% off all Fabrics, Precuts and Tools and Notions. The real bargains will be in the On Sale section of the website, there is already fabric listed at up to 50% off so when you add the extra 20% on top, that is amazing value for you shoppers. So think about what projects you are making and what projects you are nearly finished. Some of those fabrics will make awesome backings!!!!
I am off to a workshop this week with Anna Marie Horner and Bags by Annie in Bowral, I am so looking forward to be able to learn some new ideas and come back and share them with my customers!
Because I will be away this week I have had to move my stitching day to next Thursday 28th June. Please RSVP if you can make it. Same time 10am until 4pm. Bring your own lunch.
I hope you have all be finding time to do something you love, I am still working on those crazy hexagons, but I am still managing to get one done a day, I am not sure how much longer I can keep up for but if you are wanting to see what I am up to you can check it out on Facebook or Instagram under Fabric Sauce.
With Mothers Day just around the corner, I thought I had better mention that Fabric Sauce does do Gift Vouchers. They can be purchased online or just give me a call and I can get that organised for you. Don't forget Mum this Mother's Day.
Today, I am off to a Market Day in Stockingbingal for the annual CWA Mother's Day Lucheon, if you are in the area pop in and say Hello.
I will also be attending the Lions Club Quilt Show in Young on the 26th and 27th May, so again if you are in the area pop in and say hello. There is also plenty of fantastic quilts to see on display. If you need any further information on the show please just contact me and I can point you in the right direction.
New Stock has been arriving at a rapid rate, I have a big boxful staring at me now, I will be getting that loaded up over the next couple of days.
To make way for this new stock I am also adding items to the Sale Page so don't forget to check in there and see what is available. I am sure you will be able to grab yourself a bargain.
I hope you have a fantastic May and get plenty of time for stitching. I will see you again in June.
The year is already flying by so quickly. I didn't even get a March Newsletter out, so my apologies for that. I have had a few enquires as to the whereabouts of the shop now. The business is under New Management and has moved to my farm in Milvale. I am here most days so all you need to do is send me a message or give me a ring and we can work out a mutual time for you to come and visit. I will pop the jug on! If you are not close by all the products in the store are online and ready for you to browse. I am adding new stock all the time, so keep a look out!
Ove the next couple of months the shop will be attending a few regional markets the next one is on the 28th April for the Mad Hatters Tea Party. High Tea will be served with a fashion parade and some market stalls as well. So if you are looking for a great day out and are near the Bribaree area, come on out. Tickets are available just contact me if you need some. I will be back next month with the details of the other shows.
In my last newsletter I mentioned that I had Angie from Gnome Angel coming back to do another workshop, if you follow Angie's blog you would have read that she is currently having some health issues, so this workshop has been pushed back to later in the year, hopefully when Angie's health is in a better place.
My next stitching day will be on Thursday 26th April. 10am to 4pm. Please bring your own lunch. Stitching days are a great way to catch up on what everyone is working on and keep yourself inspired. Please RSVP if you can make it.
I am also currently working on adding a beginners class to my schedule to meet once a month, so please contact me if you are interested in learning to sew, we can discuss your first project!
I have been madly working away on my hexagons. If you follow me on instagram @fabricsauce you will see my daily progress. I am loving having fun with the quilt and my hexagon pile is growing daily.
There have been a lot of new products added to the website over the last couple of months, you can find them on the New Products page and also see them if you follow me on instagram.
I am so excited about the new books I have in stock, they have some great ideas and patterns inside.
We have also been having terrible trouble with our home phone, so the best number to contact me on would be my mobile number until I get the home phone sorted out! It has been an ongoing process!
Hello again, What a busy time I have had with the shop and the farm and the children starting back at school. I was hoping to have worked out a routine by now but that doesn't seem to be the case. I just seem to pop on what hat I need to when needed. Some for those of you that are wondering what days I am open, I am still open by appointment and am quite flexible. So just give me a call and we will work something out.
Our January stitching day has come and gone and we had a great day. The 365 perpetual hexagons are keeping those busy that are working on them and at has bought a lot of chatter to the stitching table. Anyone that still wants to join in I can still get you the books and papers. For those of you who would like to get involved with the hexagon challenge but don't want to commit to 365, I am also running the 52 hexagons which can be completed using papers or Eppiflex templates. Just let me know which one you would prefer. This is a example of a hexagon I stitched last night.
Our February Stitching day has snuck up on me as well and it will be this Thursday 22nd Feb, here at Pinegrove. I hope you will be able to make it . 10am to 4pm, please bring your own lunch.
A couple of weekends ago I hosted Angie from Gnome Angel she came and taught us Fussy Cutting Fundamentals, we all had a great day learnt a lot regarding fussy cutting and fabric selection, we all certainly won't look at fabric in the same way again. I am looking at hosting her again in April/May. I am just waiting to secure an exact date from Angie. Once I get a date I will let you all know as I have a few already on the waiting list. Let me know if you are interested and I can add you to the list.
I have plenty of new stock loaded on the website as well and new things keep rolling in every week. Follow me on Instagram to check out what is going on in the shop.
I hope you are all enjoying your weekend and have had some time for something that makes you happy.
Hello there, I hope you are all getting some stitching time in this January and getting out of the Heat. I plan to have a couple of inside days to dodge this intense heat we are having at the moment.
I would like to thank you all for supporting my Opening Sale that has just finished, you all certainly kept me busy and I hope you are enjoying using your beautiful fabrics that you purchased.
Keep an eye on the website as I am still adding lots of products to it. It will all come accross the new product page. Also keep an eye on instagram and facebook. That is where I post what is going on in the shop.
This is just a reminder email about the First Stitching Day that is to be held at "Pinegrove" on Thursday 25th January, 10am till 4pm. Bring your own lunch.
I hope you can make it, RSVP is essential by Tuesday 23rd please.
Hello again. I have had a couple of questions regarding the stitching day. Just a clarification, this won't be kicking off until January. I will send out another reminder as we get closer. I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Safe and Happy New Year! I hope you all get plenty of stitching time over the festive season!
Well some exciting changes are happening here at Fabric Sauce! The Business has been sold and relocated as off today 15th December 2017. I am Mandy Schiller the new owner and the excited one! This is my dream come true so I am feeling so blessed to be able to share my passion with you, all things fabric and all things quilting. I have relocated Fabric Sauce to my home at Milvale. The shop will be online and open by appointment and some certain days. As I wear a few different hats from Mum to Farmer’s Wife it is always advisable to give me a call to make sure I am around before a visit.
I am hoping to bring some fun and exciting things to Fabric Sauce. One very important detail I have been working on, is Sue Daley, I have been talking with Sue and her team and we are in the process of organising a trunk show/demo day here at Fabric Sauce next year. She is such a busy lady so we are just trying to fit in with her busy busy schedule. We are aiming for May/June next year at this stage.
The shop will be open on Tuesday 19th December 2pm to 5pm, and Wednesday 20th December 10am to 4pm, if anyone would like to come and visit me and check out the new Fabric Sauce Shop. Give me a call if you need some directions, it will all depend where you are coming from.
I will be having an opening sale 40% off fabric meterage and 20% off pre-cuts, tools, notions & patterns. Only while stocks last. Don’t worry if you can’t make it out over these days the sale will be kicking off again on Boxing Day to the 16 January 2018.
Anyone looking for a last minute Christmas Gifts, Fabric Sauce do offer Gift Vouchers.
I am going to be running a stitching day here at Fabric Sauce on the 4th Thursday of every month for any of you that are interested. All Welcome. I will send out another notification as it gets closer.
Lastly, I would like to Thank Keryl, she has been amazing over the last 5 years as the face of Fabric Sauce. She is such an incrediabley talented stitcher and such a generous person. So Thank you Keryl for all you have done for me during our transiton period.
And Thank you to all my friends and family who have offered me support and well wishes, it means so much to me. I am truly so lucky to have beautiful friends & family like you. Thank You.
