Quilting Arts Calendar 2012

Yes it is a very scary thought that we now have 2012 calendars in store, however they are just amazing! If you aren’t aware of the Quilting Arts calendars, they hold a yearly world-wide competition, each year they have a set topic and you have to create a masterpiece on this topic. The calendar is 12″ x 12″ and that is the exact size of each quilt that is made for the calendar. This year the theme was “Feeling Pet-ty” and we are very proud to say that a New Zealander got her quilt accepted!! Not only is she a New Zealander but she is a local to us and more importantly we know her!! Her names Amber McIntosh and she is the Textile teacher at Hillcrest High School. Her little frog best friends made it on the month of June. We are very proud of her.

The calendars are $29.50 each

They have a contest every year so why not have a look on their website and check out the topic from next year and get creating 🙂

Cot Cuddles

As you already know, we are obsessed with cuddle fabric. We have just had 2 HUGE shipments in of the stuff! We have got a whole bunch of new colours and even some cool prints. While our stock looks so lush and healthy we have been putting together some new kitsets for our strippy cuddle quilts. We have had a few requests for more colour ways in the cot sized quilts, so, you guessed it, we’ve made some new cot sized strippy quilts.

We have only done 2 so far, ( it has only been a week ) but here are the 2 adorable colour ways we have done…

 Hot Pink ( it looks a little red in the pic) and Purples.

Light Blue, Dark Blue and Brown.

Machine Quilting Unlimited July

The next issue if this fantastic magazine is now in our hot little hands. Once again, they keep blowing us away with all the amazing things they put in their magazines, both inspirational and informative. We always try to keep a good stock of the newest copy as well as all back issues we can get our hands on, however it is proving extremely popular and most of our back issues we have are flying out the door.

Each magazine is $18.00 and comes out every 2 months. We are also doing a mail order subscription for these, meaning we will send you the newest copy as soon as we get it in. Give us an e-mail if you are interested in signing up.

Our favorite little snips have come back in stock. We have been waiting for what seems like forever for them to come in, but they are now here! We have two kinds, the original curved blades and the new snips with a little hook on one side of the blades. These are fantastic for unpicking but I also just use them for ever day snipping.

Original snips : $20.00

Hook snips : $24.00
