Dear Needlecrafter
Just a quick email to let you know that we have one place still available in Margaret’s Dresden Plate Placemant/Doyley Class and I will be running another Baby Gift Set Class for those of you who missed out on the last few. Read on below for more information about these classes.
We have the Scissor Man AKA Keith here on this Saturday Morning @ 9.00am.  So if you are wanting those scissors sharpened before the Christmas hols please bring them in to the shop on Friday.  You can pick them up either later Saturday morning or any time next week.
We will put another Newsletter out in a week or two advising of our trading hours over the Festive Season.

Keith the Scissor Sharpening Man will be @ Jiddi’s this Saturday 3rd December @ 9.00am 
Drop of your Scissors on before closing time on Friday 2nd December.
Be prepared for the holiday period with nice sharp scissors!!
Baby Gift Set – repeated
This Baby Gift Set consists of a Bunny Rug, Burp cloth and Bib. In this class you will learn how to make these beautiful double sided, mitred cornered baby Bunny rugs.  Easy to make when shown how and they look so professional when finished.  All these pieces wash beautifully and when made with good quality flannel are soft and snuggly.  This Gift set will be so appreciated by any new Mum and Bub.
Join in this quick intensive class and get all the hints to make as many of these as you want to give away.  Patterns provided in class.
Date:  Thursday 8th December
Time: 6.00pm to 9.00pm
Cost:  $30

Christmas Doyley/Mat
Margaret Drayton
Join the class and learn how to make a Dresden Plate in a few hours and use it as a Doiley or Placemat.  Have some fun and companionship at the same time.  Make several in Christmas Fabrics and place them around the home – add a bowl of Cherries, Nuts, Lollies or a Vase of Flowers or use them as Placemats for Christmas Dinner.  Once you have learned this technique you can make Dresden Plates and place them on your Quilts, cushions, Bags and so on.  These Doileys/Placemats are finished with a felt base to protect any surface.

Time:    10.00am to 3.00pm

And remember to keep on stitching and enjoy all you do.
