It is with great pride that I write this post, my beautiful daughter has made her very own quilt and won first place in a national quilting comp aimed at encouraging young people to sew in the primary school category. She took home a new sewing machine for herself and 3 for her school, a fabric bundle and a magazine subscription. Well done xx
