During March we will be having  a quilt one, get one half price quilting special.  This means the quilting cost on your second quilt will be half the usual price (if quilts are different sizes, discount offer will be on the smaller quilt).  This excludes set-up, materials such as backing, wadding or other services, and any other voucher offers. Quilts must be sent in one parcel and will be handled as a single order.

From April 1 we regret our Reply Paid number which provided a free postal service from you to us, will cease.  Increasing charges from Australia Post have meant we are unable to absorb these costs.  However, KoolKat will still return your completed quilts by post at no charge.

From April 1 we regret our Reply Paid number which provided a free postal service from you to us, will cease.  Increasing charges from Australia Post have meant we are unable to absorb these costs.  However, KoolKat will still return your completed quilts by post at no charge.  So this means that for existing customers, our March Madness month is the last time you will be able to send quilts to us post-free.

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
