Time to learn

There is always time to learn something new - just because the school holidays are coming up, doesn't mean we should relax our brains too much!!

Okay, maybe you don't have much to do with the school holidays these days... check out our new "text books"!!

Show Me How to Machine Quilt by Kathy Sandbach.

If you have quilt tops galore and no time to mark them, you've come to the right place! Kathy takes the frustration out of machine quilting and makes it fast, fun and productive. The book includes step by step instructions for every stage of the quilting process with a troubleshooting guide.

Star Struck Quilts by Barbara H. Cline.

Mix and match stars and centre blocks to make 27 different quilts!! Build your star-making skills. Start out with simple patterns and move to complex patterns as you learn (and if you don't make them, how will you learn!!) Learn to create perfect 8-pointed stars that lie flat. Barbara will show you how to achieve the fine workmanship found in the quilts in her Mennonite community.

Tile Quilt Revival by Carol Gilham-Jones and Bobbi Finlay.

Versatile applique quilts inspired by 19th Century Tile Quilts. Big applique sections to show off your Kaffe Fasset and Amy Butler prints. Choose your favourite method of applique: raw-edge, fusible web, needleturn...6 projects ranging from traditional to contemporary...

You know, these books are better in person than on the screen. Why not pop in and have a look at these stunners??
