My Very First Post

Alicia is on holidays for three weeks in America at a Scrapbooking Convention and I only have 3 more sleeps till she walks back onto the floor at Create and See. I will attempt to get all my ordering done as it has been hectic and I have got a little behind. I have missed her and I am excited to show her all the progress I have made for the web site and my blog. Plus show her all the samples Connie has whipped up while she has been away.

Connie has been working, and it has been an absolute pleasure to have her on a daily basis. She has quite literally whipped up some gorgeous samples which I shall upload for all to see. She brings laughter and life back into Create and See. It reminds me why I am in the business, I get so much pleasure from seeing people get excited about what she has created, including Connie. The father Xmas pattern sold out before Connie had finished him. I am happy to take orders as I will be placing an order in the next couple of days.

Christmas is not far away if you plan to make and Create. Some new Christmas patchwork fabrics arrived and I have already sold a few metres. Santa on his surf board has been a big hit and will not last long.

I was also hoping the shop front would be all painted and the sign work completed before Alicia got home. Unfortunately it will not be so as the signwriter is having an operation and I will have to be patient.
I have waited all Winter, Spring is in full flight and by Summer we will be all shiny and fresh for the tourist trade.

I have been very busy putting new stock on the floor. 35 new dress fabrics arrived and they are gorgeous, I am very excited because quite a few stretch fabrics are around the $17.00  per metre mark. Kwik Sew has quite a few stretch patterns, they are available in store and online. Kwik Sew patterns are brilliant, particularly if you have a Brother Overlocker, it makes sewing stretch a breeze.

I shall attempt to make a start to upload all the new fabrics but I may have to wait for Alicia to assit me with this so you will have to be patient.
