Leaving the warehouse today and reaching your local patchwork store in the next few days:
We are still receiving a lot of enquiries about Issue One, and yes, it is still available. So it is not too late to jump onboard and start the 'Vignette In Stitches' quilt (Block One: Issue One, Blocks Two & Three: Issue Two):
I hope that you will love Issue Two and that it gives you hours of pleasure; be it from just reading through the magazine, or indulging in a new project, like the 'Spring Blossom Quilt & Cushions' in the 'Keep It Simple. Make It Quick' section, featuring 'Where The Wind Blows', the latest delicious range of fabric by Melanie Hurlston of Melly and Me:
Not to mention a visit to International Quilt Market in Houston, Texas, USA; the story behind the purchase of an antique quilt, ways to enjoy and display children's artwork and creations, and I have to leave a few surprises!
If your local patchwork store is just too far away, try one of the great online stores like: Cookies and Cream Craft (AU - ships worldwide), Under The Mulberry Tree (AU- ships worldwide) , Patchworks Plus (AU), Happiness Is Quilting (USA), Quilt Fabric Delights (AU - ships worldwide), Quiltegarden (Norway), Coast and Country Crafts and Quilts (UK), and in New Zealand Fionamarie.com , to name just a few!
For those of you wanting to know more details about the retreat that Rosie, Melly and I will be holding titled 'Imagine...Vietnam' - all is about to be revealed. Some of you have already contacted us determined not to miss out, don't worry, your names are 'on the list'. We are in the last stages of finalising what is going to be a once in a lifetime trip, and we are all so excited we can hardly sleep. More on that soon!

Also, to let you know, Lesley of Forget Me Knots in Christchurch is safe ,as is Fiona of Fionamarie.com. Our thoughts are still with everyone in New Zealand and those that have family and loved ones there.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: I have just spoken with Tracy at Tinkers Cart in beautiful Townsville and she would like to let you know that she still has 'Sweet Broderie' in stock, 'Lecien Basics', 'Cosmo' Threads all used in the 'Vignette In Stitches' Quilt - so you can stitch one exactly the same as mine. Of course, she has 'Vignette', Issue One and Issue Two as well. Also, I will be teaching there in July with Rosalie Quinlan so you will be able to see all the 'Vignette' projects in real life with me.
