Season’s Greetings to all our valued customers!
Our Christmas closing this year is midday on Friday December 19, and we will be back on deck at 8am Monday January 12.
Another important news item is that our fabulous Maryfrances – she who knows all – is retiring after 21 years sterling service with us. We are going to miss her, but wish her all the best in her next adventure.
However, we have been joined by Linda, whom we are loving having in the office – you will enjoy meeting her too.
Here’s to a wonderful and prosperous 2015

Just fabulous… the different fabric weights are lovely.
Glenys of Crafty Girls in Palmerston has sent us a photo of the quilt she made from the Princess Mirah sushi rolls (Autumn Leaves and Summer Breeze):
Isn’t it beautiful? We love seeing what our retailers and their customers make from our fabrics.
Who else has some show’n'tell they’d like us to share?
We’ve been following the Sneak Peek Fridays and we can’t wait to see the full range when it is released at Quilt Market in May.
See the new side bar menu and follow this amazing design team on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
We are the NZ distributors for the Collection D’Art range of canvas tapestries. Featured on the cover of the 2012 catalogue was a beautiful tapestry of a large tiger.
One of our long standing retailers’ customers has stitched it, and The Lace Fan very kindly brought it in to show us. Well! It is magnificent, and we simply had to share it:
It is even more amazing in person – the tiger appears to be rushing towards you, eyes gleaming.
Darren, it is really, really wonderful! Way to go, and thank you for letting us see it.
Take a look at this – the exciting new divison of RJR, launched at the recent Houston Quilt Market.
Watch this space – these ladies are a force to be reckoned with.
Well, not quite, but it soon will be!
