We are not CLOSING!

I am so sorry to have to put this up on the blog, but there are some strange rumours circulating that we are a) selling the shop or b) closing down. Neither of these things have an ounce of truth to them. I did mention in my last newsletter that I will be travelling overseas with my husband later in the year, but there is no intention of closing the shop, Lorraine and Michelle will hold the fort until I return. I have no idea how these rumours start so please feel free to spread the truth!

Jelly Babies Book

I have recently finished making a gorgeous little quilt from this book. I used the American Jane for Moda  Jelly Roll - 'Fairytale Friends'. I hope you like it too. :)


Also,if you are interested in the William Morris inspired 'Arts and Crafts Sampler BOM' you will have to be quick, we are down to the last few available now. It is $22/month over 10months.
Happy Sewing,

Spring Street Row by Row Quilt

Well I can finally tell you about the new project I have been working on over the past few months.
It is a brand new 'Row by Row' of the month Project. I can show you a snippet of it here, with Boris giving it his seal of approval snuggle...
We are currently kitting it up and the first month will be ready to go from March 1st.
 We are taking expressions of interest now though.
It is 60" x 74" perfect for a single bed/king single bed.

William Morris Arts and Craft Sampler BOM

I have a pic of our just finished quilt before it went to be quilted I thought I would share it with you...
It is a different colourway than the original and we were really happy with it.

New Flannels are here!

 How yummy are these new flannels from Bonnie and Camille's Ruby range.....
Hmmmm New PJ's for winter or perhaps a raggy quilt!
 These Marcus Bros flannels are so bright and happy, how could we suffer winter blues under a quilt made from these little pretties!
There are also some Tanya Whelan 'Sugar Hill flannels for you too! Gorgeous spots and Roses to die for! They are in the centre of the row....

We have had many more new arrivals and I have posted some of them on my facebook page' The Quilters Corner'  have not yet installed the link but will shortly.

I Love Pinterest

If you have not yet discovered Pinterest, do yourself a favour and go and take a look. But be warned many hours of serious eye candy viewing addiction are on their way to your screen! You can click on the link to the right if you want to see what I have pinned so far! Did I mention how addictive it is!!!
I have managed to get the newsletter up onto the website now for all to see. Just click on the newsletter link on the homepage or click here
Well,  back to updating my website..... Putting up more fabrics and removing old stock!
Have a great Weekend!

The Summer newsletter is available!

Hello Again,
I have just spent way too long trying to upload the newsletter to our website and it will NOT play nicely! So if you want to see our newsletter, just pop me an email and I will send it thru to you. Sorry, I hope to have it sorted out shortly.
I have also finished the February GIFT club project. It is an Insulated Water Bottle Holder and it fits a 1litre water bottle. (OR a bottle of wine if that takes your fancy!
It can be adapted for a shorter bottle if you wish.
Remember that next week we will return to our regular shop hours, with one of us working each day. 
Michelle is busy finishing off the twisted bargello quilt and Lorraine is madly finishing the Arts and Crafts Sampler BOM from Michele Hill We hope to have both available for you to see shortly.
I have been writing patterns and working on a rwo by row quilt I will unveil soon....
Happy Stitching,
