The feel of Autumn is in the air and we are excited to bring you lots of inspiration and projects to take you into the cooler winter months.
Last month Raewyn, Bernice and I attended a two day stitching retreat set amongst the gum trees in Victoria, Australia. This was time just for us, but also a great team building opportunity. We enjoyed the company of inspirational designers and fellow stitchers, along with delicious food and comfortable accommodation.
Lisa (Fig n Berry) and Katie and Pam (Cottage Garden Threads) you are all so inspirational and we were thankful for all the knowledge that you imparted along the way. Needless to say we returned home simply buzzing and filled with lots more ideas.
Please note that our Stitch n Chat date has changed and will be held on Saturday the 24th of March.
2018 Homespun Magazine Block of the Month
My Butterfly Patch has all the charm of a vintage quilt, but cut through with a contemporary edge. A Garden of Delights that will draw you in again and again.
Limited numbers, magazines and fabric now in store so Month 1 is ready to go. Cost includes fabric for quilt top, pre-cut paper pieces and 10 editions of the Homespun Magazine.
New Projects for Kids & Babies
New babies or young children in the house? There is an alphabet included in our new Zoo train cushion pattern so each set to be personalised with your favourite little person’s name. How cute is that! A Day at the Zoo pattern is for an interactive playmat and toy bag. Both designs are by Sew-along, a joint venture between Tied with a Ribbon and Claire Turpin Design.
Passports are now available to purchase. This is a great opportunity to join up with a group of friends and visit the quilt shops in the northern part of Auckland and Northland. Our quilt is Botanical Butterflies (picture attached). Find out more…
