Several ladies called and asked regarding classes on baby quilt, sling bag (laptop case) and applique. So here is some good news. The first workshop is scheduled next Saturday. We will post the details soon. There will be different workshops every 2 weeks (Saturday). Don't forget to invite your friends!
Here is a photo of the building where the shop is located.
And this is how the classroom looks like, spacious and organised.
We have an inhouse surau and a simple pantry (pantry will be ready by next week). Plenty of restaurants downstairs for lunch or snack if you prefer. Please allow us to make your visit / lesson as comfortable as possible.
For Sue & Billy lovers, here's a good news. I am now supplying ready made (or ready appliqued) Sue & Billy Quilt Blocks (in 9 & 12 blocks variety). Combine these blocks with your own sashing and border and finish it into a single size quilt. Here are two of the blocks, to view the remaining, please visit my website www.annapatchworkhouse.com.my under Ready Made page. For details, please get in touch with us.

Remember this puffy quilt I made earlier? We made another one for the same client. This second piece is slightly longer to comfortably fit a 3-seater sofa.
.... and here is the second piece.
This quilt is definitely very comfortable. I had to turn down her request to make it a double bed size, it is just too big to handle. Somehow, that made me thinking (really hard) on options as to how to attach the backing without having to encounter ooohhhhs and aaahhhhhs. I guess the answer is to experiment. May be later.
This is a laptop case made a few months ago. In the beginning I was worried with the choice of the fabric but once the applique was done, the whole thing looked quite pretty. Well, the owner is surely a young & confident lady.
If any of you want a lesson on this, please let me know.
Alright, I have no more excuses for not updating this blog! I have been away preparing for the Hari Raya and finishing some custom made orders from clients and relatives. In between, I managed to find some time to conduct lessons for friends, including two ladies who came all the way from Johor Bahru. Bravo Ros & Noreta! I salute you.
Last week, I started to respond to some mails which I had been keeping aside - regarding lessons and what not. It is time to move on. Time to take some actions, no more day dreaming. So I organised a meeting with my assistant on the Way Forward recently (sounds like a big conglomerate). Hopefully we can offer some good news soon.
And here is the first good news ladies. I have some baby panels which I couldn't resist, they are just too cute to miss. I can't wait to get them done especially the Hello Kitty panel. So here they are, but I only have 2 pieces of each panel.
Hello Kitty panel (35"x 44")
ABC 123 panel (23.5"x 44")
Boyz panel (44"x 23")
Owl Tree panel (35"x 44")
Bazoople Carousel panel (35"x 44")
Hello Kitty fabric for border (44" width)
So send me an email to reserve them. You can also choose one of these panels for a baby quilt lesson (subject to availability). The second good news, bring along a friend to take up the same lesson and enjoy some discounts on your lesson fees. Well, that's it. See you soon ya!
