Lots of exciting things have been happening here at Crow Central over the last couple of months, with the most important being a few new changes happening in the nest!
After ten years, Deirdre crow and I will be going our own separate ways to embark on new ventures alone and we are both very excited about our future plans.
With our shop lease coming to an end August 2015, it just seemed like the right time to talk about what we each really, really wanted to do.
As of 1st January 2015, The Quilted Crow (aka Crow Central) and Long Arm Quilting Service will be run solely by me (Leonie crow) and then come August 2015, I will continue running The Quilted Crow as an on-line only store along with the quilting business from my home.
My heart very much still wants to be pattern designing, travelling, teaching as well as fabric designing, and this will all continue under my new design name Leonie Bateman Designs which will be launched in the new year.
Deirdre now has herself a gorgeous little doggy called "Harry" to take care of at home, which she has waited so long for, and in between getting to know him and his puppy ways, she'll be getting herself organised at home for her new venture Hat Creek Quilts.
So with all of that said, we hope that you will continue to enjoy your interest in sewing and we can continue to inspire you. Thank you all very, very much for your support over the years as The Quilted Crow Girls.
Change is good for the soul . . . and as a friend once said to me, "if there wasn't any change, there would never be any butterflies".
Have a very Merry Christmas and best wishes for a wonderful New Year.
See you in 2015 with lots of new and exciting things!!
Until next time,
