new BOMs

We will be launching our 2 new Block of the Month programs at the end of August - thought I might pop a bit of a sneak peak online for all to see.

My new block of the month isn't completed yet. For those that haven't heard on the grape vine, I have fractured my right shoulder so of course progress on sewing projects has come to a stand still. But I can show you what I have done.

This quilt has been designed so that you can either hand or machine piece it. It's called 'Gypsy Wife' and is $40 AUD per month ($45 AUD if you live overseas, which I know some of my BOMers do). It's a 12 month program.

The other BOM is called The Aunts Quilt and is designed by Gina Gregory, one of the many talented staff here at Amitie.
 This quilt is very beautiful with a lovely mix of applique and pieced blocks. It too is $40 AUD per month ($45 AUD for O/S) and is a 12 month program.

If you'd like to join either or both of these Block of the Month programs please call the shop on (03) 9557 8551 or you can e-mail us at
Places are limited so get in quick!

Delilah - Lucy's Journey - Part 1

A fair while ago, when working through the Delilah patterns I thought "yeah... I might just make this".
After a quick brain storm with the Boss Lady/Mum, I decided why not! But it has to be different, we thought because we have no use for 2 quilts that look very similar. So, what could I do? That's when my eyes landed on my always growing stash of Liberty.
March arrived and so did our stock of templates, and off I went...
My, my, my Delilah.

You have brought me to a few firsts so I think some confessions need to me made.

1. I have never pieced a curve.

Nope...  No sir! Not one.
Curves have always scared me. I could never wrap my head around them but the Boss Lady...

She loves them!

I mean... she really LOVES them!

Or maybe she just loves cruel and unusual punishment like this block?!
Just an idea.

Curves conquered.
But wait, there's more (confessions and curves!)

2.  I don't* own an iron.

Ha. Yup!
I managed to get to a few days shy of 30 years old without…

A very lovely, Susan, e-mailed us her version of JKD Green Tea and Sweet Beans.

We love it!
She made it at a shop in USA called Sewing Party. Amazing!


Well, no. Not really! It’s more the truth about Amitie.

We never write on this blog. We want to but it’s always at the bottom of the very long to do list and it gets bumped. Bumped to the next day, next week (maybe even next year going by the last post… eeek!)

So why now? Why this post? We keep hearing things on the quilty grapevine. Things we mostly laugh at amongst ourselves because they’re so silly. But, recently there’s been a few that have made me think that some of these rumours could be a little damaging to our little fabric store so I using this platform to set the record straight.

Here are the three biggies answered straight from the horse’s mouth (neigh!)!
“I heard you’re closing?!”
Never been on the cards.
How this started I do not know. Maybe because the building we are housed in sold, which is the truth but the little rumour that followed is just gossip. We will be moving ag…
