Another Giveaway

We have some new patterns to introduce to you and that means a giveaway!

First of all we would like you to meet Gertrude and Gilbert, a sweet giraffe and her son! Make them as a set or choose the size you prefer! Lots of fun to make and an ideal project for a gift for someone special.

Gertrude and Gilbert

Next we have Two Square, a perfect beginner's quilt and super fast for the more experienced. This bright and contemporary quilt would look great in any colour combination.


We are also including Baubles the Christmas Tree quilt in the pattern giveaway pack. Featuring a variety of red and white fabrics in florals, spots and stripes there's no need to use a Christmas fabric with this one and of course you can change the colours to suit your own personal Christmas theme.


So leave a comment before 3rd April (next Friday) and we will let the random number generator pick two people to win the three pack of our new patterns.

It's over

Yes, it's sad but true, the Melbourne Stitches and Craft Show is over for another year. We have both had a wonderful time and it has been great meeting all who came by our stand to say hi and those who attended our Workshops.

You can find more photos and details here from the Show.

Here is a photo of us on our stand - it's not a very good photo - it will be updated if we find a better one!

2 More Sleeps

Living Creatively

Yes, that's right - just two more sleeps until the best and most anticipated event on the Australian craft calendar opens! The Melbourne Stitches and Craft Show. The fantastic team at Living Creatively have been doing an amazing job putting together a brilliant show for us. You can read all about what they have planned here.

We have been making up gorgeous kits for our Workshops.

We've even had the paparazzi come knocking at our door! If you double click on the photo you can read the article. We especially love the opening paragraph "Two hip young mums have set out to make sewing less daggy." With hip and young being the operative words!!!!! We really must have made an impression on the very youthful journalist!!!!

As well as our Stand (225), Audrey and Maude will be conducting two workshops during the Show and you can find the details here. Tickets and booking workshops can all be done online or at the Show.
