The question on everyone's lips..... I love ric rac and sell it in all colours and sizes, my fav would have to be the linen ric rac. Have never known how you measure the width of the different ric racs until now.
Great to use when doing embroidery, simply run through your printer, press onto your background fabric and start stitching.
Then simply remove by submerging in warm water, agitate for 2 - 3 minutes and rinse thoroughly.
Today one of our Melbourne radio stations advertised that the host of their morning show was going to be discussing the up and coming fire season in our state. And discuss it he did. He mentioned that he'd done a tour of the Yarra Ranges with a local CFA. He told listeners that this is the most at risk area in the state.
We know that we live in a high fire danger area. We choose to live here. I am a smart person. We have already decided that we'd evacuate.
However the fact of the matter is we live here. I have a small business. The media has scared the living daylights out of people and lots of local small businesses are suffering.
So here's a way around things. I can understand that you may be nervous about visiting us. Don't forget we run an online shop. If you need to purchase anything we are only an email away. I try to post orders out on the day that l receive them. If l am out of stock I will let you know that there's a hold up and l will order it in for you. We'd love you to visit, if you can't feel free to order on line. That would bring a smile to my face.
To all of you who visited Monbulk on Friday night to celebrate our very first A Merry Monbulk Christmas. It was the perfect night. The weather was kind to us and the locals turned out in droves to support the event.
Our next event will be the Monbulk Community Quilt Show on Saturday March 13th, 2010. Pencil it into your diaries.
Well finally, it's the 27th Novemeber and Monbulk is celebrating with a Merry Monbulk Christmas. We are all organised and l am hoping like crazy that if we get storms they all happen before 5.00 tonight. Still, l have no control over that do l?
And now as promised my special for today. Buy what's left on the bolt and receive a 20% discount. We are also offering 20% off all fat quarters. This discount starts at 9.00am and finishes at 9.00pm.
Is on tomorrow night at 7.00. You are welcome to come and listen to Bernie and Eileen talk about their fine collection of antique quilts. There is a light supper provided (some of the choc chip biscuits are a little over done, got side tracked this morning, but l promise l will be more careful when l make the apple slice). And of course you will receive a 10% discount on any fabric or pattern purchase. Cost for the night is $20.00.
Don't forget to visit the blog on Friday to see what's on special for A Merry Monbulk Christmas.
Is on this Friday, 27th of November, 5.45pm > 9.00pm. All participating shops will have great specials on the night including Mrs Martin's. But you'll need to keep a check on the blog because l wont be announcing my special until Friday. There'll something happening on the night to suit everybody, including a visit from Santa.
Shop locally, shop Monbulk. Of course to our friends who don't live locally come and partake in a little strip shopping. it's stress free.
