Lang Lang Quilt Show


Good morning,
What a wonderful comforting sort of day it is here today.

... It is raining, cold, and the heater is  going, so it's toasty and warm sitting here...
in my office writing this to you all, and there is the very aromatic smell of biscuits cooking in my oven...Now this is what I call a perfect day, although I do have to go out for the afternoon.

Today's posting is mainly images of the Lang Lang Quilt show
that was on this last weekend just gone.

I would like to say Hello and Thank you to all those beautiful people
whom I spoke with at the show, and a HUGE Welcome to all those who have come on board here with the rest of us, that are looking forward to receiving their regular Inspirational Tips just like the rest of you do.

I am very thrilled, delighted and grateful  at how many people
are now the new, proud and happy owners of my books, particularly my new one,
Using & Understanding Monofilament Thread, including how to set your machine.

"Thank you,
you are all such amazing people"

I do have one apology here though, to the owners of some of these quilts, that due to either the angle or positioning of the quilt, some, I could not take the image "square on", so they are somewhat a little distorted, my absolute apologies to you.

I also haven't named who they belong to, as I didn't have the names but I was advised from the committee that I was allowed to add these images onto my site here as each entrant had signed a disclaimer.

I always like to add the names of the creator of the quilt in,
as I think it's a very respectful and right thing to do, acknowledge the artist for their talents, so I do once again apologise to you, if you're the owner, friend, family, etc of these quilts.
These are just a few of the quilts there. They were all pretty amazing.


 ....Now let's look at these images....















Hope that you have enjoyed looking at these,
I just LOVE the little dresses, they were brilliant.

For those that are interested, Victorian Quilters are holding their Autumn Gathering this year at Lyrebird quilters in Belgrave on 20th May 2017.

I did a talk with at the Lyrebird Quilters group last year, and what a brilliant group of ladies they are.
It is a beautiful area over there in the  Dandenong's, particulary at this time of the year.
Unfortunately I myself won't be there as I have a previous commitment, but I am sure that those who go will have an amazing day.

Anyway I will leave you all here today,
Have the most brilliant day.

Think I'll go and make a cuppa and have one of those biscuits.

Lang Lang Quilt Show



Good morning everyone,

I am just wanting to let you know that I'll be at the Lang Lang Quilt show this coming weekend, Sat 6th & Sun 7th May 2017.

You'll find it at:

Lang Lang Memorial Hall 135 McDonald's Track, Lang Lang 3984
I'm sure that there'll be many amazing quilts there to help inspire us all.

..... So please do stop by and have a chat to me. 
You all know how much I Love chatting to people.

 I'll also have my Fabric Selector Tools with me,
so do make sure that you ask me to show you how to use these. They're such a brilliant "tool" to have in your sewing room, your purse, your car, or anywhere else that you like to be with fabric.

Of course I'll have my books with me as well,
and I'll have several different ways and offers to purchase them. To me, having choices is always good and if I happen to sell all that I have, then you'll  still be able to purchase them on the day, and they'll be posted out to you, with a discounted postage price, as I have a third big order on it's way to me. It'll be here in approx a weeks time.

My new, "Hot...yes ...Very Hot off the press",  

"How to Use & Understand Monofilament Thread, Including How to Set Your Machine" book has been incredibly popular. It obviously was a very much needed book, to have been written. In approx 10 days since launching this book, I've already just about sold out of my second shipment of this book.

If you are not going to the show, then remember that you can order your copy of this or my other books right HERE off my site. For those who are International to me, then please do read the extra notes at the bottom of the sales page.




 I'll  leave you all here today as this is just a really short posting.

...... Now that is a change for me.....writing a short posting! .....

I'll leave you all here once again today,

Looking forward to seeing many of you at the  Lang Lang Quilt Show.

Have a beautiful day


Using & Understanding Monofilament Thread, Including how to set your machine!

Today is Launching Day!

Good morning everyone
and an exciting one at that it is!

Today I am launching another brand new paperback & e-pub book.

Do make sure that you check out the cover on this book, as I think it is absolutely brilliant, not only the look of it, but Wow, wait until you feel it, it is almost velvety like to touch.

I have been using monofilament thread now for over 30 years,

and during that time I've discovered many things, about using this thread, some good and some not so good. Over the years I've learnt how to "dissolve" the issues that so many people fear. I absolutely LOVE using monofilament thread, as I can create so many brilliant results within my applique, ditch stitching, thread painting, and many other areas within my quilt making.

 I've found during teaching,

many classes over time that many people live in fear of this thread and/or say that "their machine doesn't like it". So much so, that I now devote the first hour of any class where we are going to be using monofilament thread, to teaching students how to set their machines, including their tension. I do not start the class until everyone has their machine perfectly set for sewing this thread.

You'll be able to sew your monofilament thread with  Perfect tension 

This 50 page book teachers the same exact steps to teach you, "yourself" to be able to set your tension, stitches and your machine, so that you'll also be able to sew with this amazing thread.

The knowledge that I'm sharing here with you,
within the covers of this book will allow you to have the full understanding, confidence and knowledge to now be able to sew with Monofilament Thread.

You'll also find out which brands I like to use,
that do not melt under the iron. I show and guide you with many images and very simple step by step instructions. 

 You'll no longer go weak at the knees,

with just the thought of using and sewing with monofilament thread or live in absolute fear of it.

 For more information, or to purchase,  just click here.               


I am also offering a
Two book offer.

You can also purchase this with
one 200 mt spool of
Madeira Monofilament Thread.

This book also comes in an e-pub format e-book

ISBN 9780995404533



So please do make sure that you check out this beautiful book.

I'll leave you here today
and as usual I'll be back again real soon with something else.

Wishing you the most amazing day


Although I have a large quantity of these books in stock, I have another order on their way to me as well. If this first lot sell before you get your order in, then it will show that you can order on back order and as soon as the next shipment arrives, your order will be posted out to you.
