The first Row x Row sandwiched and our Birthday Giveaways

Lorraine H, leader of the Thursday night group was busily sandwiching her Row x Row  at yesterdays meeting, making full use of the clamps we recently purchased.

 Just an aside for those who are not locals, that sepia print behind the tables, that is a print of a sketch of the original home of  Buderim Craft Cottage..........its rather an interesting story of the birth and growth of the 'Cottage' as it's affectionally called, will have to fill you in one day.

'Scuze the digression, the clamps are easy to use with a squeeze closed action

To open just squeeze the release trigger under the top handle as Lorraine is doing in this pic.

As you can see the clamps open pretty wide, certainly wider than needed to use with the quilt pinning tables, all we need now is to have the tables raised to make pinning easier.

  The clamps are in our Library, and are not only for use at the cottage, but can also be loaned out for a week.

Lorraine kindly folded back her sandwich to show the plastic table top, no more pins digging into the tables, and how about that backing, isn't it the cutest, Lorraine got it from Hancocks..........on a freight free promotion!...........ya gotta love Hancocks!

No Show and Tell yesterday, the Christmas Fair is on next weekend, Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th November, everyone is just taking a breather or hurridly putting in the last stitches of just one more goodie for sale.  If you are in our neck of the woods, do pop in and say Hi, we would love to meet you 'in the flesh'.

Oh yes, almost forgot.................Our giveaway starts tomorrow and will run until the following Friday, the 27th, our official birthday, we are giving ourselves a birthday party at the cottage on Friday morning, with cake and all, yum.

Wow, you should see the goodies I have sitting on my desk, all for you lucky readers, there are patterns, patterns with hand dyed charm packs to start you off, mini project patterns with everything you need to complete it, oh and a few other things as well..........can't tell you everything now can I,

Will let you know the 'rules' of how to enter tomorrow....
