Christmas hours
Last shop day: Wednesday 22nd December (open 10am – 4pm)
Closed between Christmas and New Year – and this year we are taking a slightly longer break
Re-opening:      Tuesday 11th January, 2022 at 10am
Classes update
We had hoped to have some classes scheduled during December, but after much consideration we have decided we will not be holding any classes for the rest of the year.
We know this is not what we were hoping for, however while there is so much Covid circulating in the community, we feel the risk is too high. We took into consideration that the classroom is of course part of our home, and just in the last week I have heard of several people who have been notified that they were ‘casual contacts’ within the Blackburn area. Way too close to home!
We will review this again in the New Year, and hopefully can re-start classes then.
A GIFT for you
A huge THANKYOU to everyone for your support through 2022 – we simply wouldn’t be here without you!
This week, or while stocks last, ALL MAIL ORDERS or INSTORE PURCHASES over $40 will receive a kit to make an embroidered pincushion. Kits contain a stitch guide, fabric, polyfil and threads to get you started.

New Products and Magazines

The Gypsy Quilter Terrific Tape
A self-cling tape that sticks to itself and nothing else! Use it to wrap up your thread spools, eliminating messy thread tails. Wrap your embroidery hoops together for storage without fear of sticky residue. Bundle up just about anything and leave stickiness behind!
Available either 1/2" or 1" wide
Grip Strips

If you’ve used a quilt ruler, you probably already know the frustration of having it slip as you attempt to cut a straight strip of fabric. Whether you compensate by applying extra force to your quilting ruler, which puts stress on your hands, wrists, elbows, and shoulders, they can still slip.
Grip Strips multiply and concentrate the force along the edges of your rulers or templates. Help avoid miscuts and frustration by eliminating ruler slippage.

New Tins
We have added to our range of tins and also restocked some of our most popular designs. The deep rectangular tins with the hinged lid (Beatrix Potter, Crafting and Sara Miller Orchard) are the perfect fit for the large spools of Aurifil thread (how cute is the dog!!).
Alaska Ruler
Designed by Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts, this ruler can be used to create a multitude of different blocks. You'll find a handy video with Edyta demonstrating how to use this ruler by clicking here

Clover Patchwork Multi Board
