2016 Progress

PROGRESS

It has been a very busy and productive year for the Wild Cotton Fabric team.  We have exhibited at the Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra Craft & Quilt Fairs. These have been massive for our little Sydney based team and with all the hard work and dedicated customers we have gathered along the way I can say it was all worth it.

 WE WON BEST EXHIBIT 2016

Ok we are somewhat bias when it comes to our little stand. We wanted to stand out from the rest and I believe we achieved that. we had so many positive comments from you, our gorgeous customers, and even from people who were not there to buy fabric, they just passed us, stopped and came over to congratulate us on presenting such a beautiful stand. It was to our surprise that we won Best Exhibit in Show at the Sydney Craft & Quilt Fair. We were totally over the moon that we squealed so loud and everyone could hear us.

In 2017 we will be returning to the Sydney and Melbourne Craft & Quilt Fairs. We are also booked in for our very first Melbourne Quilt Convention!!
 






SMALL PROJECTS

It is school holiday season here at Wild Cotton fabric HQ. Our own little munchkins are running around wanting constant attention and ACTION. We have some small projects that you can assist them with that is fun, fast, and achievable.

MINI MUG RUGS
We launched our groovy Mini Mug Rugs last week in a funky Checker Board design. This project is EASY and can be created with just a small amount of scrap fabric. They are also practical and both your children, grand children and even yourself will be delighted with the results. Purchase a kit today (pair of Mug Rugs) for only $8 or pick up from our stand at the Wollongong Craft Alive Show.

Ummmm - how is it November already?!

Wow! I honestly do not know where the last few months have gone! They say time flies when you are having fun, but it also flies by super fast when you are just surviving!!

Nat & I had sooo many ideas to blog about this year (quilts & other projects) but just never seemed to find the time... Next year I hope! I do know Nat's Lancaster Diamond quilting challenge with Daisy Janie is looking fabulous - hopefully we can see some sneak peeks soon.

I am planning on making 2 quilts in the near future - a dinosaur themed one for my 3 year old for his 'big boy' bed & a newborn cot quilt in our new Garden Tales range for another project I've been working on ;) I will try & remember to take photos along the way & post for you all to see.
