Two of Canberra Quilters’ sponsors (Crafty Frog and Treasured Textiles) are getting behind the Healing Hearts for Christchurch quilt drive – organised by Angels in Gumboots in Ashhurst, NZ.
On Wednesday 27 March, from 10am until 4pm, Crafty Frog will be running a sewing day to make the hearts/ quilts. If you can’t sew that isn’t a problem – they need people to cut fabric, iron pieces, provide nibblies…

Here is a message from Laura, detailing the extent of the sale:
including those items already marked down (excluding consignment items). I am determined to clean up the shop and move excess/over ordered/not collected stock and you are the winners. There is no Layby and no holds on sale stock – sorry I need it gone. Also all fabrics purchased can be cut, however this will not be done on the day. Payment in full must be made, your details will be kept, and we will cut on Monday/Tuesday and have it ready for collection – sorry but it’s just way too crazy to be trying to cut fabrics on the day of the sale.
