Thank you Gutermann!!

Written by AHQ

When I went to welcome home HMAS Newcastle I was approached by a fellow who introduced himself as Scott, Managing Director at Perivale-Gütermann Pty Ltd.  Now that may not mean much to the non-quilters and sewers among you but I instantly recognised the name of the company. I don’t know the stats but Guttermann is a very popular sewing  thread company in Australia.  

Scott told me that he was there to welcome home a family member of his own. He said that his wife had been following the blog for sometime and that the company wanted to get involved to support us.  It wasn’t opportune to stop and talk then as we were both there to meet people but Scott called me again the next day to touch base.  

A couple of weeks later look what he delivered!  If there is one thing that we all need, it is thread.

I called Scott to make sure that he was happy for me to publically thank him and Perivale -Guttermann Ptd Ltd and, although he was happy for me to do so, he emphasised that he did not expect it. 

So here is a HUGE thank you to Scott and Perivale-Guttermann Pty Ltd for their support. 

It is much appreciated.

Till next time…………………….keep spreading the word and happy stitching.
