The Thread Studio Newsletter
Number 112 November 2013
Hello Everyone - Welcome to November We have been to London and back and had a wonderful time. Ally Pally was a brilliant
show as always and we followed it with a wonderful week in Cornwall. We absolutely loved it and especially enjoyed eating freshly
cooked fish every night. If you knew just how expensive fish is in Perth you would understand. It’s always good to be home again of
course and this past week has seen us very busy filling all the orders which were waiting for us and catching up with friends etc. We
are hardly back and summer seems to have hit with a vengeance. We have lots of work to do in our garden but we have had our first
bbq of the season so all is well.

We don’t have any shows now until July 2014, so we will be
busy keeping our website up to date, adding new products as
they arrive, updating existing colour charts etc and maintaining
our top notch mail order service.
Have you joined one or more of our clubs? They are all very
popular (especially the silk fibre club), and while they keep me
very busy putting them all together, it makes it all worthwhile
when people tell me how much they enjoy receiving a parcel of
goodies each month.
Issue 3 of our e-mag will be published in December with the
theme of Stitchy Stitchy, and there will be some super articles
to look forward to it. We have some fabulous people writing and
experimenting furiously right now – including me. I will be sending out my in-between the issues post this week as well. There
is always time to sign up for a subscription and receive a free
pdf. Remember you can start your subscription from Issue 1 or
2 or wait until issue 3.
