Well I have my stitching projects all lined up ready for the Easter break - I am secretly wishing for wet weather so I can stay inside and sew.
My main project involves some needle turn appliqué.
Of course, for this I will need some supplies.
If you are new to appliqué, we have put together a fabulous Appliqué Pack.
This pack includes all the essentials to get you started -
the very clever Apliquick rods,
a non slip black mat,
water soluble appliqué paper (as light as air and you don't need to remove it),
a glue pen and refill,
a pack of Milliner's needles,
the fabulous Karen Kay Buckley Perfect scissors (large size),
and a selection of Super Bob threads that are so fine they disappear into your work.
The pack also includes an instruction sheet, or you can view this video of Lynette demonstrating on YouTube.
All items in the pack can be purchased individually.
When travelling to a class or quilting group, a cutting mat can be cumbersome, so why not buy yourself one of these great little Fiskars rotating mats?
At just 8" square and lightweight they are perfect for taking with you.
Grid lines for up to a 7" square, and handy 30, 45 and 60 degree lines.
We have larger mats available also for when you are at home.
These mats are truly wonderful when you are cutting small shapes, and especially when fussy cutting.
Have you checked your rotary cutter lately?
Is it time to replace blade? I like to change mine with every new project to ensure perfectly cut lines.
We have a great selection of cutters and blades available.
This time of the year seems to be filled with holidays here in Queensland.
We will be closed Friday 14 April and Monday 17 April for Easter, Tuesday 25 April for Anzac Day, and again on Monday 1 May for Labour Day.
We pride ourselves in getting your online orders shipped the day we receive them in the majority of cases, but please be a little patient over this period because of the holidays.
Have a great break over Easter and remember to keep the chocolate away from your stitching!
Till next time
