Cut and Go Round and Round and Round…

ImageIt seems like the more patchworking that we do, the smaller pieces we have to cut. The Fiskars Rotating Mat makes this job easier and quicker, while eliminating stretching or wobbly cuts. This quality cutting mat rotates easily, so that once you have placed your fabric on it, you can trim it on any side without having to lift it off. Perfect for cutting with templates like Marti Michell.

Available in 2 sizes – 7 inch square or 13 inch square.

Embroidery Club Saturday…
Image Just a reminder that this month’s dates has put the Saturday Embroidery Club Hands-On day BEFORE the Demo day….

End of the Month is Nearly Here!

ImageThe 30th of June is just around the corner and heralds the end of many of our machine specials. If you have a new machine in mind, many prices end this Thursday.

ONLY 1 LEFT…. Sewing Room in a Cupboard!
We couldn’t help oursleves… When placing our orders from last weeks super special, we just couldn’t pass on the opportunity to grab one more at this great price.

1 left, Beech finish, Ready to Assemble!

Last one @ $749

Please call 5495 5381 to make it yours!

A Little Shot of Steam…

ImageThe Jeeves Mini Steam Iron is one of those tools that once you’ve borrowed it off of a friend you have to have one and wonder how you went so long without it. Small enough to fit into the palm of your hand , this little iron is more than just portable – keep it beside you at the sewing table to press seams while you piece without getting up and down to the iron board, or use it to press machine embroidery applique or patchwork projects while the fabric is still in the hoop! With the option of both steam or dry ironing, and the ease of a non-stick sole plate, this little unit makes an invaluable side-kick in the sewing room.

Low Fat Jelly Roll!
ImageA Jelly Roll is a great way to buy lots of colours at once. Containing forty 2.5 inch strips, each 42 inches long, it is a perfect way to get started or makes a great gift. With a total of 2.5 metres of fabric wrapped up in it, a Jelly Roll is available in lots of fabric ranges and is $54.95.


Use That With This…
Turning Twenty – Feelin’ Groovy
On Special This Week for $32.95.
