Sandwich Saturday

What is a Sandwich Saturday?
It's a day when we can push the tables together in the classroom so that you can pin (sandwich) the 3 layers of your quilt, no matter how large or small it is, without having to crawl around on the floor and without having to spoil your best dining table with pin and tape marks!
We book sessions in 1 hour slots, between 10am - 2pm, booking is always required... you can book more than one slot and some customers do just that.
You can also use the tables to lay out the blocks you've made to decide on settings, or to see how many more blocks you need or... even better... to help you choose fabrics!
Each sandwich will need wadding and we are very happy to supply you with a freshly cut piece from selection of  wadding rolls, so there are no tricky fold marks to oooch out... more wonderful customer service!

Just Edna's Double Wedding Ring sandwich... a beauty!
Two and a half metres square... huge. We can sandwich in two halves if we have to... Edna is now seeing the enormity of the task ahead... she is so very pleased with her quilt so far... which is always a bonus.

You have see this sandwich before... AnnBacan had made the sandwich a few weeks ago and done lots of quilting on it... Deciding that she wasn't happy with the result Ann unpicked it all.The fabrics have been carefully re-pressed and a new sandwich is all ready for quilting again. Ann is back at square one, but she's much wiser and much happier!!
There were two further sandwiches made, no pictures though. We consulted a lot on Saturday... there are some fabulous works being started just lately... the shorter days and rubbish weather bring the quilters out of the gardens!!!

I hope you have taken note that my shop will be closed on Friday 20th October and Saturday 21st October. It's for a family wedding and a sewing retreat... It's going to be a busy weekend.
