Happy New Year

I wish you all a very happy and healthy 2016.

Firstly, as some of you know, I have moved into bigger digs - downstairs! I'm loving it and those who have popped in since I moved love it too. I do hope to have an open day to celebrate and will let you know when. I'm waiting on a few finishing touches! If you are in the area and want to drop in, please do - just call or txt me - I'm here most days.

My new website is now live! You can check it out here and let me know what you think. The colour finding tool will be back - I know a lot of you like to play with it, but for now all the fabrics are categorised into colour families, which will make it easy for you to find what you are after. Remember, I can send you samples for you to audition to ensure it's just right!

All the orders are now processed by Paypal - you don't have to have an account with them, they will process your credit card on-line safely. And when you get to the shipping information you have to select ship outside US! We're working on fixing that too, as I am in Australia!

I have some very exciting new applique kits in stock. They are 'Applique by Numbers' and are all Australian in theme. In order they are Waratah, Lorikeet, Butterflies and Kookaburra:




The design is printed onto the background fabric and all the applique fabrics come in the kit with instructions. All the panels are around 1m by .8m, so are a good size for a wall hanging or for the centre of a quilt. Now just to decide which one to do!

Beginners and Free-motion Feathers classes will soon commence. If you are interested in either of these classes, please let me know. The beginners will make a small quilt (around 60" square) using a variety of techniques in piecing the top then I will take you right through to basting, quilting and binding. This will not be another UFO! This class will run over several months.

In Free-motion Feathers I will teach you the anatomy of the feather and help take the fear out of free motion quilting with discussions on threads, needles and tension.
More details on both classes soon!

Happy Quilting!
