This class to complete our beautiful quilt will continue into 2018. More info at a later time!
Mystery Quilt Club:
You will make four projects over the year, each over two classes, as well as a quilt which will remain a mystery until the final class! Each project keeps you guessing at how the technique is to be used in your quilt, and how it will look in your fabric choice. Project kits are included in the price but some extras such as wadding, backing, etc. are not. The fabric for your quilt is also not included, but we are more than happy to help you choose and lay by your fabrics!
Class days: Thursday 10am to 12 noon, Saturday 10am to 12 noon, Saturday 1pm to 3pm
Cost: $50 per class for eight classes, two per term.
Blocks of the Month for 2018:
Anthology Block of the Month:
Our latest Block of the Month “Anthology” will commence in January 2018. A beautiful quilt of 182 4” x 5” blocks. The first month you will receive the book and a fabric pack. Each month after that for a further 17 months you will receive a fabric pack of some of the newer fabrics available. This program will be more of a fabric club as you will choose your fabrics from the monthly mailing to make your blocks. My quilt will be made at the same time as yours!!!
Cost: $35 per month for 18 months.
Eleganza Thread club:
These beautiful threads are a must have addition to your thread collection! Each month you will receive 5 spools of Eleganza Thread, 4 Perle 8 and 1 Perle 5. After the twelve months you will have an amazing collection of sixty threads. This program has already started but places are still available.

Regency Block of the Month:
This is a new quilt designed by me. It will be made from a beautiful new blue and white fabric range being released by Moda in April next year. An EQ 8 printout of the design using the fabrics ordered is available for viewing. At this stage I am seeking expressions of interest. Further information will be available at a later date.
Watch out for a new Hatched and Patched Block of the Month, hopefully early in the new year.
