Our first group is now full, but if you would like to join the second group, please register in the comments section or call into the shop. Our list is rapidly growing, so let us know soon!

We hope to have the second group running within the next 3 months.

More blocks coming soon – but if you need a fix, jump onto Helen’s blog here.


Beatrix Potter

Finally had a play with the Beatrix Potter Panel and used the acompanying instructions (I know, what was I thinking?!) to make up the book. Very cute, and also very easy. And the perfect Easter pressie for a baby who will be arriving sometime in June (decided choccies probably weren’t appropriate!)



Singer Tin


At my last class, I got paid out for using this box to store my project in (Sonia, I hope your reading this!) Ok, I do realize it’s pretty ordinary, but you know, it was handy at the time. So after I got home, I had a look through the special storage peices sitting neatly (and emptily) on the floor, next to the shelf, which is yet to be affixed…..and found this:

So, now I feel stylish and organized!

No More UFO’s

The very talented Julie Nixon of  “The Patchy Affair” is now offering a Machine Quilting service, and even better, also offering a 20% discount for any that are booked in before the end of March. Ok, I know that’s only a week away, but you only have to book-in before then.

We have some of the quilting designs in the shop for you to have a peek at, and you can also check out some of Julie’s other work in this months Handmade magazine.

So, gather those quilt tops stashed away in cupboards, give Julie a buzz on 0418891601 or email her at – and tell her we sent you!

Npnt Launch

We launched our Nice people nice Things Block of the Month tonight, Finally! We have been busting to share some blocks with you (coz they are very cute) but wanted to wait til we were full steam ahead…and now we are. It was lots of fun, we drank champagne, we ate pate and very gorgeous cupcakes (Thanks Kahlia!), and some people even stitched!


Here are a couple of blocks to get you all started , and don’t forget to check out Helen’s Blog here, as she has a little Easter Pressie for you all too.

(I think these first blocks may actually have been designed for me!)






Happy stitching everybody!

Remembering well



Di brought these pages in to show us today. She has been doing an album of her family’s history, and we are so loving what she comes up with.

BOM Colourways

I have put some of the colourways available for the Nice people Nice things BOM here, so if anything tickles your fancy, let us know! We are also happy to make up kits in your choice of colours.

Only 5 more sleeps ’til we launch!
