An Heirloom Lace Quilt
Here I am
preparing for
our Chritmas
Class last year.
We all had a
lovely time.
Heirloom Lace Quit
This is my heirloom lace Quilt,
which has been a fun project and can
be completed in your own time using
some of your antique laces.
It has been a lovely project, one I
know you will enjoy if you love
heirloom sewing. Just let me know
when you want to make a start.
Sew & Stay
Sew and Stay - for those of you who would like to
come to the Carriage Studio but live a long way
A Baby Smocked
To All My Dear Friends,
I can’t believe it’s time for me to send you another
program, I love the Christmas season but I am now
focusing on 2010 and hoping we will have something
on the program to bring you to the carriage studio.
There have been made in the carriage beautiful
blouses in silk dupioni, linen and cotton, cami’s for
special occasions, baby wraps, daygowns, bibs,
booties and gorgeous christening gowns, smocked
dresses for very special children and grandchildren
and nightgowns like you just can’t buy and of course
doll dressing. We also had personalised wedding
handbags and handkerchiefs made here - a very special gift for a special bride or friend.
Everyone who comes can achieve so much because
they don’t have the distractions you have when
stitching at home and David organises a beautiful
lunch for us.
We are sewing on Wednesday and Saturday with
patchwork reserved for Thursday.
Those of you who have come to the carriage studio
know that I will try to adapt to your requirements so
give me a ring before the class so I can be prepared.

projects are always welcome.
