Nice People Nice Things – Block of the Week

Nice people, Nice things is a Block of the week, designed by Helen Stubbings from Hugs’n’Kisses. It contains 54 stitcheries with a corresponding quote on the reverse of the card(so 108, really!). We will be launching it as a Block of the Month (yeah, I know!)

It finishes up as a 63″ x 81″ quilt, but you can use the stitcheries for a myriad (cool word, huh?) of other projects (think, bags, cushions, cards, etc), using the quilt-as-you go technique.

When you join in, you get to hang out with us on the 3rd Tuesday of (most!) months for an evening of  (funnily enough) nice stitching with nice people. You also get to hang out with Helen (and many other nice peopl!) on her blog, especially set up for this project.

So….on to the nitty gritty:

First Month:

You recieve the box with 52 stitchery patterns and the first 2 transfer packs (yep, no hanging out at the kitchen window for us!), all stitchery backing fabric, and 4 fat quarters.

Months 2 – 9

You recieve 2 transfer packs and 4 fat qtrs each month. You are also invited to stitch with us each month!



Month 1: $126.50

Month 2 – 9: $35.00 per month

We will be launching Nice people, Nice things on March 18th, but you will be welcome to join in at any time.

Each pack will be available for collection from the shop on the 3 rd Tuesday of each month(as listed below)

Liked the dark reds and burgandy’s but just loooved the blues. My Lisa will be soooooo jealous (cos she just loooves blue – her fav colour) Can’t wait to start it. Sooo excited.
    Keep smiling and keep up the good work girls. See ya soon!!!!!!
