While our products are available directly from us, I would encourage you, where possible to buy from Patchwork Stores stocking our products, after all they do have the fabric, threads and most other bits and pieces you might need. If you are unsure where to get them, please drop us email and we will get back to you with a location of the nearest supplier.

The Festival was for Quilters and featured many Long Arm and Mid Arm Quilting Machines along with a good range of vendors with Quilting supplies. The Quilt Show was terrific, so many beautiful Quilts.
We had a great time at the Festival, while Leonie was off at the Ricky Tims Seminar, I was setting up the display.
We used the Australian Machine Quilters Festival to launch Spin-e-fex and a new range of templates designed to create a multitude of designs. Spin-e-fex was designed to sew with a continuous stitch. We had everyone in mind with these tools, so we wanted them to be useful whether you had a Long Arm Quilting Machine or you enjoyed using your Sewing Machine to Quilt or Quilting by hand. For drawing straight onto your quilt or onto paper, there is a packet of discs available to use with the templates, that will give you the same stitch line as if you were to stitch it straight onto the quilt with a Long arm or Mid arm machine
You spent so much time creating your quilt top, it has been quilted, now only the binding to go. Binding does so much for your quilt and it should be easy, not complicated.
Leonie has a wonderful method to finishing the binding on your quilt that is easy and accurate and the tool she created to do it, is called "Bound To Fit"
Easiest way to explain how it works is to watch the video

We have had a busy year visiting Patchwork Stores around Australia and meeting with so many ladies and yes a few guys, who are so passionate about patchwork. Leonie did more than 30 workshops including the Double Wedding Ring, Dresden Plate, Epsilon Star Setter and more. We will be at the Craft and Sewing Show in Caulfield on October 25th on Punch with Judy's Stand demonstrating our products.
