A sincere thanks to all the good folk who took the time to come to my closing down sale.
The crowds were extraordinary on all three days and kept my poorly paid assistants flat to the gunnels at all times.
Poor little Robyn was near to collapse on Friday night!!! A good night’s sleep and she was ready to start all over again on Saturday.
Eilish, who is not a quilter and first time helper couldn’t understand this fetish for fabric that quilters have.
Sandy got caught in the Friday rush then stayed back to help me repack the fabric onto the shelves, and then she and Richard worked like demons at the front of the shop on Saturday.
My two sons Stephen and Darren and Steve’s wife Olivia were indispensable; especially Darren who was a chief cutter and general roustabout.Susan should have been home packing in preparation for her trip home to America spent Saturday wielding a rotary cutter.( After she made sandwiches from the turkey leftover after Thanksgiving).
Narelle took over some cutting on Saturday while Robyn and Eilish had a short well-earned break and brother Rod, (nursing his broken collarbone) like Clancy, came to lend a hand.
This is the end of stage one of my big move.
THERE IS STILL PLENTY OF FABRIC LEFT
I have a new consignment of aboriginal fabric to unpack as soon as I can, and also, I’m introducing the Florence Broadhurst range into the shop.
What is left of the Christmas fabric is still half price until sold out. Also Christmas panels now $6.00 each
