Stacey’s At The Gap March 2020 Newsletter
Where to begin! Well midday 23rd March due to the current virus situation we were instructed to comply with government direction to temporarily close. We know a lot of you are disappointed with the suspension of retreats but we are hoping that it won’t be too long before all retreats can resume.
We will add in extra retreats where possible in our calendar to help get you all on track with your health and wellbeing that only comes from having some ‘me time’ with us here at Stacey’s.
Maintenance & Improvements
On a positive note, while we are closed to the public we have been catching up on some maintenance and we are happy to report that our main contractor has been working away delivering us a lovely driveway and carpark upgrade! Our new gardens in the carpark are coming along beautifully and will be looking fantastic when you next visit us.
Just before the closure we were preparing for the colder weather and have upgraded our linen to provide you with bath sheets and washer… how nice to wrap up in a large fluffy bath sheet after that hot shower! Anyway these will be here when retreats resume!!
Quirky Moo Retreat
Our last retreat before closure was our very first Quirky Moo Retreat, Kylie from Little Moo Designs and Mandy from Sew Quirky teamed up with Stacey’s At The Gap for a massive weekend. The projects were kept a secret until reveal night on the Friday. ‘Hay Babe] was the applique pattern from Mandy which kicked off the themed weekend. Applique finished it was then converted into a ‘Shine On Sling Bag’ with Kylie.
Both patterns were designed especially for the weekend and are being released to the general public in April. The weekend was full of laughter, fun and creativity… even some mooyoga Sunday morning!!
Sad you missed it?? Well we have another Quirky Moo Retreat scheduled for October 9 – 11, 2020 – again the patterns will be new and specially designed for another themed fun weekend (more details on the website or just ring Leonie)
Kylie (in the cow suit); Mandy with the ‘Hay Babe‘ design on her outfit, and some ‘mooyoga’
Retreat information has been updated on the website - so start planning for when life returns to some sort of normal!
House of Jackson workshop in free motion quilting on a domestic machine is still scheduled for June but if we haven’t resumed retreats by then (we hope we have!!) we will work with Jackson to claim another date.
If you missed out on booking for this workshop please send an expression of interest to us and we will work with Jackson to secure a date for next year.
Bag Making 101…
Bag Making 101 with Kylie from Little Moo Designs (our 2 August workshops) still have one position available for August 8 & 9 and two positions available for August 22 & 23.
These are a smaller workshop so as to give you more hands on time with Kylie. The design for these workshops is a new design from Kylie and will be released to the general public in September… so you get to be among the first to make this beautiful bag how cool is that!
