Another Clever Customer

A customer recently emailed me this photo to show how she has used our Saffron Craig Owl

Panel. The Panel has been put to use with nothing wasted. Well done Gloria! I’m sure the owner

will love and cherish the Quilt and softies for years to come.

Patchy Affair


Our friend Julie Nixon is very talented. Not only can she attend to all of your Long-arm quilting needs  she has also released a range of patterns. We have said patterns and samples in-store right now. Come and see!

The Move

We finally made it!

We are now at 15 Taylor Street Kadina.

Here are some photos of the progress.

The front as it was.

We are on the move…

We are moving to 15 Taylor St, Kadina… Right next door to Des’s butchers… Back one diagonal block from where we are now…

Whichever way we say it, we’re still about the place!!! 🙂

We will have to close, however, in order to pack up all the pretties and relocate them… Also, the MEGA facelift happening on the new shop needs a few more days to become beautiful!!!


WEDNESDAY, 23RD MARCH : 9:30am- 5:30pm
MONDAY, 29TH MARCH: We will keep you posted as to whether we’re able to open – hopefully our wonderful renovations will be on their way to completion 🙂 Stay tuned for updates (oh and photos :))…


Date extended for giving quilting items

Good Evening 🙂

We’ve just found out that the posting date has been extended for parcels of love to a fellow quilter… See our previous blogs for items required. Please have donations into our store by Monday, March 14th. We have received many generous donations so far, so thank you all!!!

Updates on the website for the collection explain any parcels not sent to individuals affected by the floods will be sent to Cyclone & Victorian flood victims. Many more are required by the lovely ladies doing the collecting & they have combined their efforts with the Queensland Quilters Guild to streamline service, so have a look through and see if there are any spare items you have . . . donate one single item or a whole kit – it all counts!!!

Every time we receive a donation before 11am on 21st February, we will put your name into the draw for a terrific Sally Giblin cushion & stitchery pattern. This was the date for the original post off so we will stick to this date for our draw as previously advertised… All donations after this date will be gratefully received 🙂

In other news, our new shop location is looking a little worse for wear at the moment – the builder is in the middle of demolishing all the internal walls to expand the space for our stock to inhabit 🙂

Happy Crafting!
Belle 🙂

It’s Official!!! We have a new site for our shop.

We have a new site for Country Chix!!! Many preparations will be undertaken before we can actually make the move, but we’d like to let you know that we will be moving around the block (literally)… Stay tuned for a photo (yet to come off the camera), but we will keep you informed of all our exciting changes to the new premises in preparation for our relocation. In a couple months time you will be able to collect your meat from Des’s butchers in Kadina, after calling into us next door at 15 Taylor St, Kadina 🙂
The building used to house offices, so some serious re-arranging is in order. Our trusty builder is going to start by knocking out a wall or two, or three!!! We are all very excited!!! Yay!!! Hope this enthusiasm keeps up to fuel us for the imminent moving of mountains of stock (ahem) “all our lovely crafty and gifty items”. 🙂
Hope you’re having a wonderful day whatever you may be doing, and may the project you’re currently working on turn out as beautifully as you hoped!
Many Smiles,
Belle 🙂
