Machine quilting pattern catalogue changes

We are in the process of revising our pattern catalogue.  Some existing patterns which are little used, or where we have have difficulty with quilting, will be deleted. 

There is also a set of new patterns that will be introduced.  A new catalogue will be uploaded to the website, but this will take a little time to produce.  If you are using the existing catalogue in the meantime, it might be an idea to check if the pattern you choose is still available.

The best Christmas present we could receive (apart from rain)

Dear Kathy & Geoff

Thank you, thank you,  THANK YOU for the beautiful work you did on my quilt. I have always done my own quilting but I’m afraid the poor old Bernina, and my shoulders, were not up to quilting a king size bedspread so it was with some trepidation that I sent it off to you. I needn’t have worried – it is better than I had imagined and I simply can’t fault it. The colour choice for quilting thread, and the backing fabric are perfect and really complement the quilt itself.  I will have no hesitation sending you future quilts for the Kool Kat treatment.

My daughter-in-law is going to be delighted when she receives this on Christmas Day – and shocked that it is actually finished!

Merry Christmas!


Jennifer, Condong, NSW.
