My order from Australia has finally arrived after 1 month delay. So we now have in stock the Rotating Cutting Mats. A 30cm x 30cm Mat is $44.80 and the 45cm x 45cm is $97.00. These make life so easy as you don't have to turn your fabric, just the mat, and you don't have to run around the table to cut from the other side.

Some new items have just arrived in from the US, but they have taken quite a long time to get here, unfortunately. Check out these wonderful Silicone Iron Rests from Gypsy Quilter, $14 each 10.5" x 5.5" in a colourful selection of lime green, purple and red. These are great because when you are doing a lot of ironing you can leave the iron face down on them without damaging your ironing board.

Earlier this week club member Sheryl Meech was announced as the winner of the 2020 Brother NZ Quilt Challenge. Congratulations to Sheryl. Here is a photo of her quilt and being presented with her prize - a Brother PQ1500SL sewing machine, which she has had a play with and loves.

Are you thinking of making your own Christmas Crackers this year? If so we carry Cracker Snaps so you get the "bang" in your crackers. Still only $4 for a packet of 10 snaps, discount if you buy 5 or more packets. They are really easy to make and you get what you want inside, so you can theme the gift to your guests.
I designed a new pattern a couple of weeks ago that has proved very popular. I do have patterns or kits available.

Visit each of the 5 stores in the region - Village Books & Crafts, Amiee's Homestead Quilts, Fox's Cottage Quilts & Wool, Cherry Pie Bernina and Plume Art + Stitch. Each store will be offering specials/ or a sales table, plus each store will have quilts on display, lots of goodies and a couple of hidden letters that you need to look for. There are 2 sets of 2 letters hidden in each store, find them, write them down and then decipher what the words are. Complete the entry form and leave it at one of the stores. You are then in with a chance to win one of 5 gift baskets. Have a wonderful time travelling around on your Road Trip and Good Luck.
I will have Wendy from Wombat Crafts with her wonderful Mosaics on site displaying and selling her lovely pieces. Mosaic and patchwork go hand in hand don't they.
Love to see you this weekend. New stock just in - some wonderful landscape fabrics and some new fabric covered button style jewellery.
