Hi everyone and Happy Easter,
(Tea Towel from Stitch it for Spring book)
This week we would like to wish everyone a happy Easter. We hope you enjoy your holidays, catching up with family friends and finding time for some stitching.
We have added some new fat ¼ packs made using Follow my Heart and Hollyhock Cottage. Each pack contains 4 different fat quarters and the packs are just $20 each.
This week's featured kit is the Garden Gnome Needle Book, $54. This kit is made using the Secret Garden Fabric range which is one of Lynette's earlier fabric ranges no longer in production so these kits will definitely be a limited edition.
In stock is "Lynette's Favourite" Cosmo skein pack, $13.63. Each pack contains 10 different cosmos skeins all of which are in Lynette's style and colour way. The cosmo threads are a dream to work with and in this pack you will have every colour you will ever need.
Once you have your Lynette's favourite thread pack, you will need to store them so they are easy to access and kept out of harm's way. Our Little Quilt Store Thread Holder Packs are perfect for that job. There are five different designs on these unique thread holders, $5.40.
Along with Lynette's favourite thread pack, we also have our Multi Works thread pack, $60. These packs contain 10 different colours of 88 meters of double stranded embroidery floss. Perfect for those projects using a lot of one colour.

Breaking News - LQS Pincushion Club
Breaking news, the Pincushion Club books and month 1's kits have arrived. For those who are in the club keep an eye on the letter box as your orders will packed and shipped later this week. For those who haven't joined the club we have a few places left. We have attached the sign up sheet so don't miss out. Please see below for more information about the club.
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 for overseas customers, 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.
This week has seen some different weather conditions again providing beautiful sunshine but also some wet days which are perfect for stitching. With the temperature change we can definitely see the changing seasons on the horizon.
As with the season change, we have also had an in-store change and with our airing of the quilts and our reshuffle, we found one complete Charm Club set. There is one space for one lucky person. As this is a once only opportunity, you will need to email us at email@example.com with any questions you have about the set and then we can reply with the relevant information. These beautiful charms won't last long!
High on the list of our most sought after items are our fabric packs and kits. A kit ensures you have everything you need to complete the project and keeps it all together until you're ready but, if you are like us here at the Little Quilt Store, the excitement is too much and we can't wait.
This week we have our "Little Garden Purse" fabric pack. This pack contains all fabric required to make this beautiful project. The pattern is available as a download and the hand painted puppy buttons are also available separately or you can buy the printed version of the pattern with the button included.
We also have our "Flower Power Puppy Pillow". This fabric pack contains all fabric requirements and the raw dog bone button for only $35.00. The only extras needed are thread and a pillow.
The "Beehive Sewing Book" is an essential requirement for keeping your stitching essentials together. We only have a limited number of kits with the limited edition hand painted red crow button pack, $47.18.
We have had many visitors to the "Little Quilt Store" and we have enjoyed meeting everyone. From many of those conversations we have found that there is an interest in doing a Saturday afternoon Lynette Anderson Project class. If this is something you think may interest you and it fits in with your schedule, then please fill out the attached form and send back to us. If you have any questions please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org (This class will of course be for local ladies only).
