Where Did The Time Go?????


So what have I been working on that has kept me incredibly busy and inspired to the point of bursting for the last 'goodness knows how many' months? A magazine for you! Four issues a year!:

It is called 'Vignette'. (Yes, the above notice board is in the first issue and uses 'Sweet Broderie by Rosalie Quinlan Designs printed by Lecien as are the below serviettes!)

For a very long time I've dreamt of having a regular publication to share all the wonderful things that this world has to offer. Forget the everyday grind and the troubles of the world and pick up something in your hands that inspires you, something that makes you feel good on the inside and gives you just a small escape for a short time while leaving you feeling refreshed and inspired to face the world again. That is what Vignette is.

The dictionary definitions of 'vignette' are varied and many. My favourite is the decorating definition of creating a "small engaging scene, view or picture". This is what Vignette will be filled with, a visual delight along with ideas for your creativity, your home, your garden, your kitchen, and so much more!

My wish for you is that Vignette will inspire and uplift you, and maybe, just maybe, lead you on a path away from the everyday...

Back very soon with more details (especially about the 'Vignette in Stitches' Block of The Month Quilt')!

P.S. To all my wonderful retailers: I hope very much that you will love 'Vignette'. I have also produced it very much with you in mind. Easy to kit projects (including a lovely big queensize "Block of the Month" quilt that is two fat quarter bundles and a few other fabrics - cutting guide in every issue). There are lots of simple but rewarding projects throughout the year that you can get ladies to meet in store for when they pick up their latest issue. My intention is to support all of you wonderful quilt shop owners who have supported me (and in turn, my family) for so many years and give you a magazine exclusive to the patchwork stores. I hope that it also inspires you on a store, and a personal, level. Product details will follow the launch at Australian Quilt Market in my beautiful hometown of Melbourne, on November 20 - not long to wait!

Note to Retailers: Monday 11th October: I have received numerous emails regarding pricing and pre-ordering. Please be aware that NO pricing has been set as yet and this is why we are not taking pre-orders just yet. Of course, as always, my distributor Creative Abundance will keep you updated.
