The Adelaide Sewing, Stitching and Handcraft Show Round Up


The Adelaide Sewing, Stitching and Handcraft Show is over for 2014. We had a big weekend so today I have spent the day completing all the orders from the weekend and putting the stock away. A special thank you goes to Cathy, Maureen and my long suffering husband for their help over the weekend. I hope they enjoyed the show. These show are great for us to get out to meet our customers and for them to see our latest products in  person. Of course you can purchase any of our products at www.cynthiasark.com.au  These shows are a lot of work and I know we were tired by the time we had everything packed away in the trailer last night.   I did find the time to learn a few new things. There were some great workshops to attend. Plus I brought a few things I needed to improve my free motion quilting. There was so much more I could have brought but I was there to sell. Here are some more pictures of my stall.

Some Free Motion Time.

Finally after a number of weeks of sitting waiting to be quilted my camellia quilt made it to the sewing machine for some free motion quilting. If you have been following my blog this year you will know this is an area I decide to work on. I wanted to go past stippling and go somewhere I haven't been.


So here is my attempt at branching out, I have had a go at flowers in my hexagon flower strips. Circles have been a problem, so I need to practise them. I want to be able to flow through the design rather than stopping and starting all the time. That is how I end up pointy circles. Maybe I should create a design that uses pointy circles instead. I know more practise is the key.


I just have the binding to go.       
Until next time
Keep Stitching
