Welcome to Gum Valley Patchwork

Hi everyone
Welcome to the June update. It's been on my to do list for 3 weeks, and I am finally sitting down on the chilly Wednesday evening to get this updated before the month is over. How fast is this year going?! We are almost half way through....and a third of the way through least that's a positive! With a busy July ahead of me, chances are that there won't be a July newsletter next month. We have quite a few events happening (Craft Alive Adelaide, Christmas in July and Craft Alive Perth), which means that the shop will be closed for most of July and the first part of August. Please check out the dates on the calendar, so that if you are planning a trip to the shop, you won't be disappointed if you arrive and we are closed.
Emma, Georgia and Maddy arrived back in Australia 10 days ago, and it has been all go since then. We have spent quite a bit of time in Melbourne helping Emma to move back into their home, and of course spending lots of time with the girls which has been really great.
My challenge to make 2 new shop samples every week until the end of June, came to a screaming stop a fortnight ago, but I was ahead of my target. Sixteen new projects have been completed and I am happy to have so many kits available in the shop and online. These will also be making trips to the events that I have coming up.....if they last that long!
There have been two lovely new fabric collections arrive since my last newsletter. The first was 'Down Tinsel Lane' by Anni Downs of Hatched & Patched. It's the first of the Christmas collections to arrive, and you can check out all of the lovely prints HERE. The next to arrive was the beautiful new 'Creating Memories' fabric collection from Tilda......64 pretty prints....which will be available as basics for a number of years. These small scale prints are perfect on their own or teamed with other Tilda fabrics.
There will be lots more to tempt you over the coming months with the following collections ordered: 'Crimson Garden' by Deborah Velasquez (June/July); the Christmas collection, 'Winterly' by Robin Pickens for Moda (July); 'Beach House' by Laundry Basket Quilts (July); a lovely mix of 10 prints from the 'On Dasher' Christmas collection by Sweetwater for Moda (July); 'Cottage Charm' by Poppie Cotton (August); 'Simply Be' by Anni Downs for Henry Glass Fabrics (August); 'Grand Haven' by Minick & Simpson (September); 'Sanctuary' by Tilda (October); 'Rouenneries Trois' by French General (October); 'Magic Dot' by Leila Boutique (October); 'Melrose' by Studio M (October); 'Hush Hush 4' by Riley Blake (October); 'Dots & Dashes' Flannel collection of 12 prints (October); 'Chirp' by new Moda designer Elena Amo (November); 'Bloom & Grow' by Kathy Schmitz Studios for Moda (December);  'My Type' collection of 10 prints (December 2024); 'Sunday Brunch' by Tilda (February 2025); and 'Flossies Flowers' by Janet Rae Nesbitt of One Sister Designs (March/April 2025).
Almost 20 new much fabric!
