OUR CRAFT FORUM BLOG HOP STARTS TODAY!


Thank you for joining Our Craft Forum's blog hop!. So what is " Our Craft Forum"? a craft forum for like minded people who love crafts. mostly patchwork, stitching, quilting and the like. It's a safe place to make new friends who share a love of craft & to have some fun and a little bit of laughter along the way & to join in on swaps of all types.
This weekend is designed to tell our blogging friends about our wonderful forum and invite you to be part of our forum.

Several of the members will be offering tutorials, giveaways and some tips of the trade.
The blog hop starts at miss-nances blog so if you want to join us on the whole journey please go to
   http://missnance.blogspot.com/ and follow the links at the bottom of each post to find the next blog along the way.
Each person who joins our forum from this blog hop will go in the draw for a craft pack. So to join our forum, please go to



Entries close at MIDNIGHT EDST (Sydney time) Sunday 27th February.
So join in the fun and maybe find a new forum, new blog and new friends along the way.
You never know, you may even learn something new or win a great prize!

I have a little hint to share with you, it is not my own idea, I have read it somewhere recently but can't remember where otherwise I would give credit to the person who posted it.

A temporary design wall can be made by attaching a flannel backed tablecloth to a door ( flannel side out) -I have not tried this yet but it sounds a good idea.

I am offering a giveaway on my blog. The winner will have a choice of a panel called ' Tea for Two" by Yuko Hasegawa for RJR fabrics,


there are 8 separate cushion sized prints all different featuring, tea cups, mugs, glasses etc. would make great placemats, runner, little hanging etc, OR a choice of a surprise pack which would include a pretty FQ and ? and some? and perhaps a ?.

The winner can let me know what they would prefer. Please do not comment BEFORE midday today, as only the comments after that time will go in the draw.

If you join the craft forum and let me know I will give you an extra entry, please make sure I am able to contact you.
I hope you enjoy visiting all the lovely ladies in this blog hop and hope you become one of new friends on the forum.
Thanks for visiting my blog I hope you come back again.

Your next stop on the hop is over at the lovely Norma's blog at

  6. Design walls are a great idea. I have the material just not enough wall to put one up. Someday.

  7. FYI A flannel backed table cloth TOTALLY works for a design wall. I used one for years before DH made my current one. Thank you for the chance. Can't wait to dig around the new forum.

  8. Hi Sandy, that's a great idea with the tablecloth, I wonder if it would also work with a piece of flannel on the door, I don't have a tablecloth but I do have a piece of flannel.
