Happy Easter everyone!

We are off to our picnic in the scrub yet again this year….lots of people, families, kids, dogs & DUST!! We all meet in a scrub on Yorke Peninsula and have a huge BBQ, salads & desserts. Plenty of drinks, laughter & fellowship along with an amazing Easter Egg hunt for both adults & children. Old fashioned games to participate in and much fun for all…

Hope your Easter is just as much fun as ours always is with our family & friends.

Machine Quilting for Beginners DVD

At a time when it can be tough to find the money to pay for a private class or travel to a major quilt show to seek out machine quilting classes, this DVD provides the next best thing. Let award winning quilter Kim Brunner show you the important fundamentals of machine quilting. With three Teacher of the Year nominations under her belt, Kim brings her popular humor and experience to the world of in-home DVD classes. You'll learn how to deal with quilts that have 'issues,' how to make sure the quilt is loaded straight and square and stays that way throughout the quilting process, how to set up your studio and machine in the most efficient way, and more! With techniques that are applicable to any machine quilting setup, this DVD is suitable for all beginner level stand-up machine quilters. Length; 2 hours

Price: $AU48.00

Think you can't do feathers? Think again! If you've been a chicken about learning these designs, Kim's much anticipated new Workbook/2 DVD Set will have you ruffling your feathers in no time flat. After three years spent teaching literally hundreds of students to do these feathers in both show classes and private in-studio classes, Kim has finally put her feathers techniques into a DVD format suitable for all quilters.

Set contains 2 instructional DVDs and a workbook filled with step by step directions and sample designs suitable for both machine and hand quilters alike. Also included is a bonus section which demonstrates how to apply binding to your quilt using your longarm, midarm or frame quilting machine.

Skill Level; Confident Beginner/Intermediate

Price: $AU68.00


Kim is coming to share her knowledge with us in Australia at our

Australian Machine Quilting Festival in Oct this year.

To hear all the latest news on Festival you can visit the blog or the website above & sign up to the Festival newsletter…

We now have FIVE International teachers along with some amazing Australian teachers getting involved.

The very generous Vicki Anderson, owner of Meander Publishing has offered to sponsor Kim Brunner to come to Australia! Please go check out her Machine Quilting Unlimited website and say thankyou at the same time. Vicki & her DH will be attending Festival and would love to meet you all there. Her magazine – Machine Quilting Unlimited – is focussed on machine quilting & is a fantastic source of information to have on your bookshelves. Constantine Quilts distributes this to subscribers here in Australia, but you need to subscribe online direct to Meander Publishing via their website. I always have spare copies that you can look at when attending shows as a vendor. The next one is in June at the Quilt & Craft Expo, Rosehill Gardens in Sydney.


The Intelliquilter is now available for Prodigy & Proto quilting machines....

If anyone is even contemplating purchasing an A1 Longarm quilting machine or an IntelliQuilter computerised system that will go on  'any' brand longarm machine, then don't hesitate to contact me!! Prices are subject to exchange rates at all times.

We will have another large shipment of A1 machines arriving again in late April/early May…

Come & see us to have a play on the A1 Quilting Machine & see the amazing Intelliquilter computerised system at the Quilt & Craft Expo in Sydney in June 2010.
