Quiltaholics’ Newsletter

“The Fat Quarter”


Greetings to all our wonderful loyal customers! It’s hard to believe that Christmas is just around the corner and the year has flown again. We would like to take this opportunity to welcome new customers and thank all of our lovely customers for their business and wish you all a very Happy Christmas and safe New Year with your loved ones.

It’s been almost 2 months since AnnaLisa and Steven were married. We had an absolutely beautiful day and thank everyone for their love and best wishes. Thank you also to everyone for your patience on the rare occasion when we needed to close the shop due to illness and pre wedding events.

Please remember we are a ‘one stop shop’. This means that you can get a great coffee, pot of tea and home made cake and enjoy our beautiful garden while you plan (or review) your purchases. My apologies for the lack of newsletters again this year, but life keeps getting in the way of our shop plans, and sadly no-one can help getting sick.

We have lots of new goodies in store and exciting plans for next year so make yourself a cuppa, sit down, get your diary ready and see what we have for you in 2018

Please note that we are closing at 3pm on Friday December 20 for our Christmas break. We will reopen on Tuesday January 16 at 10am with our usual two week sale of 20% discount on all fabric, precuts and kits!

Also, this week we will be having 20% off our last minute gift ideas. Check out Facebook for a new gift idea each day.



Madeira 1000m rayon embroidery threads - Great value at only $11.30/spool We are increasing our range to meet your demand. The Madeira threads perform beautifully in embroidery machines and the colours are stunning. Perfect eye candy!

DMC have added another 35 gorgeous colours to their stranded thread collection. Our cabinets keep the threads in beautiful condition, dust and tangle free, and we always have black in stock!  Check out the new way of storing the threads in folders too, far easier and more convenient than winding them onto cardboard bobbins.


Once again Jinny Beyer has updated her colour palette and the new fabrics are just delicious! Call in to see the beautiful new colours and designs on the updated pieces. While you’re here why not get a bargain and buy some of the ‘retired’ fabrics for only $15/m - 1m minimum cut and no further discounts apply.


Has finally arrived and it’s absolutely beautiful. So soft an with a lovely drape. At this stage I’ve been told it’s a limited edition run so if you need charcoal wadding for your next project, this is a must buy!


At $26.50 per panel these are just stunning and great value. Why not choose on of these to start your stitching journey with Heather’s class?


Here are a few suggestions for last minute gift ideas, this week only all of our tins are discounted by 20%, so there’s no better time for a little treat for yourself or a friend. The ‘Inspirations’ Roses gift cards are beautiful, only $15.95 this week or you could get your choice of a Moda candy in a gift tin for only $12.75. Of course we have more tins for you to choose from in store.
