Welcome to our May newsletter! As you can see, we’re presenting our newsletter in a different format and that’s because we have a new website – same address, but with a major renovation. You can read more about it below, plus what else is happening in the shop along with new classes, new fabrics and lots more information.
Our new website went live last month and we’re very excited about it. We’d love you to take a moment and visit it. We have some new features including a ”Colour Finder” button where by clicking on a colour in the “Colours” spectrum , all fabrics in stock in that hue will come up.
Another fun feature is the “Preview Fabric in Block” button; once you have some fabrics in your shopping cart, click the “Preview Fabric in Block” button
choose a block and “colour” it in with your chosen fabrics.
This is a great way to see how your fabrics will look in a block.
So go and have a play; if you find any problems, please let us know. This is all new to us too. Find us at www.sewnandquilted.com.au
We have some fabulous new books in stock. Here’s just a few to whet your appetite!
The following issues from Quiltmania are now in stock:
Please phone, email, or call into the shop to get your copy (contact details at the end of this newsletter or at the “Contact Us” page on the website).
… we are happy to order in for you any Quiltmania magazine or book that is currently in print. If you’ve seen a book you’d like or are missing an issue of a magazine, let us know the title details and we’ll order it in especially for you!
We have been inundated with new fabrics the last couple of weeks! Check these out (and more!) on our website.
There are just a few places still available for the Quiltmania Mystery Quilt Block of the Month for 2015, “Colmar”. If you are interested, contact us ASAP!
To assist you with the Colmar BOM we are holding a class at the beginning of each month. Glenda Cust is our tutor, and as well as helping with block construction queries, Glenda’s main focus will be the embroidery stitches and the trapunto effects used on each block. It’s not too late to join the fun!

When: Wednesday 3rd June.
