ooohh Cottage Garden Threads Collectors Club arriving soon and a facebook giveaway

oohhh love love love the colours in Cottage Garden Threads 

I have used them in quite a few projects so when Katie mentioned they were having a Collectors Club over 12 months I thought - why not?

Its a fun way to add to your stash over 12 months - you might ask what's in it for me.  Well for the cost of a cup of coffee a week you will get 4 wonderful Threads skeins, a free stitchery pattern, be part of a stitchery sampler each month and go in the draw to win a prize pack each month.

Normal RRP is $26 per month - Nays Place Price is $22 per month a saving of $48.  
This is a 12 month commitment and I can organise a paypal invoice monthly, charge your credit card or give you the details for a direct deposit.
1st Lot has sold out - ordering 5 more sets - please get in quick if you would like to join.
3 out of the 5 left - let me know if you would like to join. 

It's not to late to join - first mail out is in February. Simply email me to join  

Cottage Garden Threads are also offering a pattern for this gorgeous thread case to compliment the Collectors Club - if you subscribe you will receive a 20% discount off the pattern.  Isnt it cute

Love the fabric that Katie has used in this case.

And an apology - I cant believe its been 4 months since my last blog - I have started a Nays Place facebook page as well and am posting daily to this - so please go in and like my page.

I will be having a 100 like giveaway and have a pile of goodies just waiting to go...will post to anywhere in Australia.  

So where do I start - family life has been very busy - cant believe birthdays have been and gone, Christmas went flying past (I think I stopped and celebrated), school holidays are over and I now have a Yr 9, Grade 6 and Grade 3 students.  As Mr 'almost got my drivers licence' is reminding me - 16 months till he turns 16, 5 1/2 years till I turn 50 - both will come around quick enough - seriously we're almost in FEBRUARY.

On the shop front I am selling Bronwyn Hayes from Red Brolly, Gail Pan from Gail Pan Designs,  Karen Buckley products - perfect scissors, perfect circles etc, Cottage Garden threads, Annie Downs from Hatched and Patched, all the fantastic designers from Creative Abundance as well as my other supplies.

Slowly but surely the 'shop' is starting to take place.  Keep an eye on my facebook page for specials.

I love that things are starting to fall into place.  I must say some very persuasive ladies were very keen for me to try - I met these ladies when Anne and I attended a Christmas Gathering with Gail Pan and Leanne Beasley at the Novotel Glen Waverley in November 2013.  A very fun weekend catching up with old friends and making some new.

and from Gail

I am lucky enough to be taking my mum with me again to Robyns Indulge in Stitches this time to be hosted at Maggie Beer's Pheasant farm with the wonderful Bronwyn Hayes, Rosalie Quinlan and Robyn herself.  Glad I talked mum into it as it is now sold out.

My promise to you

So from now on I will post regularly
I will be having Sunday sew days - call me to confirm times
I will be adding products to this site
I will be following my dream

Take care and keep stitching
