NEWSLETTER 30 September 2015

THANK YOU for your understanding while we transition with our journey’s new direction. Packing up & clearing the old shop/retail space has been achieved with help from lots of our fabulous family & friends.  Saying thank you only just covers how grateful we are for the efforts required to achieve this seamlessly.

The Market Day at Jubilee Community Centre on Saturday helped lighten the load of fabric still left.  Such a beautiful spring day to set up on the verandah of Building 2 with our “mobile shop”.  We hope to have more of these days at the centre with other options available to clear the last little bit stored at Kate’s place. 

Going forward we will have basic sewing stock available which includes cotton wadding, interfacing, weave line, threads, Sue Daley products & Cottage Garden Threads.  These will be available on sewing days but you can ring Kate on 8396 0316 to make an appointment to collect what you may need.  We will have a list of available stock & prices very soon J


Sewing Days at the Jubilee Community Centre 7 Jubilee Way Wynn Vale

Wednesday   9:30am – 1pm                                          Saturday   11am – 3pm     BYO lunch

Annual Fee $230.00 payable by 20 Oct 2015.               M/ship covers weekly meetings    1/10/15 – 30/9/16

Quarterly Fee option   $75 payable 20/10/15             M/ship covers weekly meetings   1/10/15 –16/12/15


Membership to A Quilters Odyssey POETS Day/s covers our hiring costs plus public liability cover only.  Sewing Days are weekly on Wed or Sat but if you can only come fortnightly or monthly that’s OK.  Same fee applies however.  We will have tea coffee milk sugar & biscuits available for a gold coin donation each week.

The idea aim & object of the group’s sewing days is to foster the love of patchwork quilting & embroidery among all participants.  We hope you will be happy to share your knowledge & help each other with any issues arising from new challenges you choose.  Kate & Sue will be on hand also for input where necessary.

Each month we intend to introduce new techniques which you are invited to join in on (or not – your choice).  Some months a small kit will be required (cost not included in your membership, but additional).  At other times something from your stash may be required.

WORKSHOPS RETREATS & EVENINGS with invited Guest Speakers are also being planned & again will have an additional cost if you choose to join in the fun.  If you have any ideas, please let Kate or Sue know & we will do our best to meet the challenge.

Membership is calculated across the use of both days at Jubilee CC which will allow you to come on either day of the week – yay!  The only catch to that plan – Wednesday is in a smaller room & may not always have the space.  Just give us a call to confirm there is a spot on Wednesday.  Saturday is not an issue given its size but it would still help us if you could let us know your plans in advance please.

APOLOGIES if you are unable to come for any reason will be appreciated as this will help complete the picture each week with space availability.  Happy to receive a text message or phone call (preferably not Facebook as we are not on there every day)

A QUILTER’S ODDYSSEY is to move in a new direction soon.



A QUILTER’S ODYSSEY is to move in a new direction. The current Lease expires on 30th September 2015 and we will be moving Workshops and Classes to a new venue.

Today (1st August) gives our valued customers the first opportunity to purchase at a flat 20% on ALL stock. (* minimum cut 50cm on bolt fabric). Our “Treasure Chest” will have fabric and some other goodies @ 50% with a minimum cut of 1m on bolt fabric.

As from next week all customers will be able to purchase the discounted prices.

All fixtures & fittings are also for sale. Ask us about items and check our prices.

Enquiries have been made at various venues and we have decided on utilising spaces at the Jubilee Community Centre, Jubilee Way, Wynn Vale.

An “Evening With Pam Holland” will be our first function organised for the evening of 21st August, 7.30pm for 8.00pm. The cost per person for the evening will be $20.00 which will include supper. Book early to avoid missing out to hear about Pam’s quilting journey.

A new list of classes and workshops will be available for distribution. Also keep watching our Facebook page for updates.

Sue will continue to organise our popular Annual Retreat at Belair and possibly 1 or 2 other events. We already have the dates for 2016 – more information will be made available via Facebook later this year.

I will also continue to have a small supply of basic notions, wadding etc for sale.

A free raffle will commence today so grab a ticket and be in to win the basket of goodies valued at over $50.00.

Sue has also organised a “Silent Auction” on a “Miss Kate” pack of Fat Quarters from Moda . $2.00 per guess. The closest “guess” to our extra special price will win the pack. This will be run over the next few weeks.

Tell all your friends about our “End Of Lease Sale” and the opportunity to purchase quality fabrics and other items at special prices.

** When it’s gone, it’s all gone.

Sue and I are disappointed that circumstances have necessitated this move but we hope many of you, as our valued students, will join us in our new venture.

Thank you for all your support over the last 4½“ years and we hope you continue your journey with us.

Kate and Sue
