Class Updates

We’ve had a few little changes to the class schedule.

If you weren’t sure if the Holiday Patchwork Forest (pattern by Amy Smart of Diary of a Quilter) was for you, check out Marcelle’s new variation below:


This version is much more playful, and makes a great I-spy quilt to use with kids. We still have some of this fabric to make a kit if this is more your style, but get in quickly – fabric is limited and the class is October 14th. Click here for the flyer -> Holiday Patchwork Forest

The Pow Wow quilt class (pattern by Allison Harris of Cluck Cluck Sew) will now run on November 4th. Cost is $130 – click this link for the flyer -> Powwow Quilt.

As a consequence of this change of date, there will no longer be a “Baby Bits and Bobs” class in November.We apologise for any incovenience with re-scheduling.


Next UFO day will be November 25th, 9am-4pm. Bring along any unfinished projects (either something from a previous class, or just something that’s been sitting incomplete by your sewing machine for far too long!) and we will try to achieve a few finishes together. Cost is $25 for the day – includes morning and afternoon tea. Click here for the flyer -> November UFO

New Fabric

We’ve had some pretty awesome fabric arrive in the shop these last few weeks (if we do say so ourselves).


We have some fantastic canvases and linens, and these new ones are a mix of Andover designers. I’m making a handbag out of one of these – I just couldn’t resist!

This cute range is called Big Sky, and is the debut line by Annie Brady for Moda Fabrics. We have jelly rolls and coordinating yardage. Those little bears and forest animals are just divine!

Sunday Supper is the new line by Sweetwater for Moda. I don’t know about you, but these colours are right up my alley – I’m having trouble not taking them all home with me! We have jelly rolls, layer cakes, yardage AND backing fabric for this beautiful bunch.

And as always, new Kaffe Fassett is a treat!

Foundation Piecing Class

On Saturday, September 23rd, we held a skill-building class focused on Foundation Piecing. We had a LOT of fun, and everyone chose to make different blocks. Thanks to all the fantastic ladies who attended and made it so much fun! Keep sharing your foundation-pieced goodies with us as you keep practicing those skills!


Well, that’s it for now. I’m off to make the most of sewing in the sunshine! I hope you’re enjoying the warmer weather too.
