Dragon flies quilt receives praise from Cheryl.



Always nice to get a glowing testimonial.  Thanks Cheryl.


Hello Kathy and Geoff

 

I arrived home to day to find a parcel waiting for me to be opened.   I was soo excited to find it was my quilt and jumped straight in to open my parcel.

OMG ………….absolutely beautiful.  The blue thread used for the quilting of the dragon flies is perfect.  Also, I must say I am very impressed with the label and well done.

 

Thank you so very much once again for the fantastic work you do and I am truly one very happy and satisfied quilter.

My quilts may be slow to be finished but when you receive them after being quilted, gives them life, purpose and satisfaction to all our hard work. 

“With pride one should say……That’s my quilt”.

 

Please continue to keep up the much-appreciated fantastic work and I will not hesitate to recommend your business.

 

Regards
Cheryl

Christmas-New Year greetings and our opening times

The year has rolled around once more and we again thank you for being our customer. KoolKat Quilting will be working up until Christmas but we would prefer not to mail any quilts in the week before Christmas (starting Monday 19th).  We will be closed over the Christmas - New Year break and expect to recommence Jan 11th.  Any parcels sent to us before then will be held at P.O. Box 18, and we will check the mail before Jan 11. Due to rising postage costs, any correspondence including machine quilting vouchers will be by email only, so if you are not sure if we have your current email address, please let us know. Have a safe and enjoyable break, and we look forward to hearing from you in 2017.
