Ushering in 2016 in fine style, The Country Yard team have all agreed that we need new patchwork projects, longer hours and more workshops to keep all of our crafty customers on their toes! It’s all happening at The Country Yard!
The Country Yard team are excited to announce that we are now open on Fridays. For all our mad keen quilters out there, this is fantastic news: it’s been in the works for a while, but we’re finally able to really make it all happen. Of course, that meant we had to come up with something really amazing, absolutely wonderful, and extremely exciting to celebrate the occasion…
Introducing the Fabulous Friday Mystery Quilt! This is a celebration of everything we love about quilting – and to make it even better, this is a design specially created for us by the wonderful people at stitchingfarmgirldesigns. To make this project even more of a challenge, we’ve upped the ante and put into place a few challenge rules, just to keep you all motivated and on track!
To receive the mystery border fabric on the last day of the Fabulous Friday Mystery Quilt challenge, you must have completed ALL of the steps! Also, NO block, NO pattern. Your registration fee of $35 includes the border fabric, which will be available to you at the end of the programme, along with a number of coordinating fabrics to help you with your fabric selection. This will be part of your starter pack – and don’t worry: all patterns are also included in this fee.
This programme begins in early March 2016 and meeting dates are Fridays, 18th March, 1st and 15th April, 6th and 20th May, 3rd and 17th June with our final wrap on 1st July.
We would like as many of you to be able to take part as possible, so to help you:
- We will stay open late on a Friday (by arrangement) for you to bring your block along,
- We are happy to accept progress photos providing they are received on (or before) the scheduled date,
- AND, for our out-of-town customers who would like to join in the fun, there would be a small postage charge each month for us to send you the next pattern.
