Apple Basket News.

Hi Everyone, 
This is just a short and sweet newsletter to let everyone know about a couple of classes we have coming up in the near future. 
Life has been very busy here at The Apple Basket with lots of classes and designing for new projects for Symposium coming up at the beginning of October.  Such an exciting time.  Even if you aren't going to do classes at Symposium, make sure you go along to see all the quilts and the merchants as we will all be there in one place, a great opportunity to see all the shops!  Dates for the NZ National Quilt Symposium are 1st - 6th October 2019 and it is being held at St Cuthberts College in Epsom Auckland.  If you want to do classes you will have to register for it.  Find out more at
Any way enough chatter sit back and enjoy.

Our next Pfaff Club is on Thursday 20th June 9.30 - 2.00
This month we are going to be making a glasses case with a flexi frame to keep them protected.    Great to give away as a gift as well.  I have used the lovely 3 Ribbon Stitch to attach the plaited ribbon on either side of the colourful strip.  If your machine has this function I will be able to show you how to use it, if not don't despair, we will be able to find something on your Pfaff to use to decorate.  You will also be learning how to do machine applique for those that haven't done this before.
