Chateau Hexagon & Wool
We are very excited to announce that Chateau Hexagon is now available as as a large pattern and button set. This beautiful wallhanging is a project which incorporates all of Lynette's style...applique, embroidery and piecing and, together with the exclusive hand-painted buttons, makes this Lynette Anderson project extra special! ($73.00 for the full set).
With the weather cooling down here in Australia we have been inspired again by wool.
This medium is an absolute dream to stitch with. We have had some fun with wool in store and our work in progress has been so much fun to play with. If you haven't tried it you are really missing out.
Look no further than Yoko Saito's "WOOLWORK" for inspiration (book $40.86). This book contains projects both large and small, from bags to quilts and some very individual items all made using wool.
At the Little Quilt Store we have carefully selected our range of wool packs ensuring the colour combination compliments each other and only enhances your work. (Wool packs $20.00 each).
Also Yoko Saito inspired is the new yarn dye fat quarter packs. Each pack contains 5 different yarn dyed fat quarters and there are three different colourways, pink, blue and cream. When we look at each pack we can already see the projects for each individual piece of fabric. (Packs are $36.00).
Have a great weekend.
Pincushion Club - Sign Up Today
Here at Little Quilt Store, we have many exciting new projects coming up throughout the year. Starting in mid April will be the Pincushion Appeal project of the month. These are the most adorable wool felt pincushions. Each one cute and unique in it's own way.
Month 1 will contain the book with all the patterns and your first kit. Each month you will then receive another gorgeous kit for your next adorable pincushion.
Rather than follow the order in the book, we have decided to mix it up a little. That way, each month you will receive a nice surprise in your letter box.
As we appreciate and understand the rising cost of postage, we are giving the option of receiving your blocks of the month in three separate packages. The first package would contain the book together with the kits for both months 1 and 2. Package 2 would contain the kits for months 3, 4, and 5. The kits for months 6, 7 and 8 would arrive in Package 3.
There are some small embellishments that are not included in the kits. You may already have these or, alternatively we are offering some of these as extras. Depending on how you choose to receive your block of the month, you will be given the relevant list of essentials and optional extras for each project before your package is sent out so, be sure to include your email address and correct contact details.
If you would like to take part in this fun club, please fill out the attached form and either email or post it back to us.
Be quick as there are limited places available.

New Patterns & More
Lynette and Sae have just returned from their trip to Japan for the International Quilt Festival held in Tokyo, which was very cold, windy, and busy. The Japanese ladies loved Lynette's new purse designs so we thought we would share them with you.
Lynette has designed two purse stitchery patterns...'Heart Cottage Purse' and 'Sewing Purse'. You can buy just the pattern and use your own fabrics, or we have the kits to match each design ($22 each). Also required for this project is the pre-made purse, available in two colours, black & cream (cost $33).
We also have a number of different toggles to choose from - these are attached to the zip clasp and add the final finishing touch Lynette loves ($8.50 each).
To assist with the making of the purse Lynette used curved needles. Clover curved needles are now in stock, $10.
Hand dyed wool is one of the warmest materials to add to your applique work. It adds a different texture and dimension to your work as well as being a dream to work with. We are pleased to announce the return of our wool packs, packs of 5 pieces approx. 7" x 8" $20.00
We also have some wool stash packs... there is limited stock so be quick, there are 25 pieces per pack and each piece is approx 6" square, $39.00
