You have all been asking...


To all the Amitie Addicts,

The last 6 months have been full of questions. The main one being 'where are you moving to?" and we are excited to finally announce.

After much careful thought, discussion and searching for the perfect premise (oh boy! Was there some searching. Both soul searching and on realestate.com!)… we have finally found it.

Amitie Textiles will be moving to Torquay, Victoria!

18 months ago Richard and I relocated to Torquay and to regain a better work life balance, it's time for Amitie to follow. 

This has been one of the most difficult decisions I have ever made but I know deep within, this is the right move for me and my business. 

The new store will be bigger and better than anybody can imagine! Our focus is to create a space different to others - a truly inspiring space, full of warmth and character. A magical place to get lost in, but also a place to find and explore your creative self ! 

We don't have a moving date just yet but once announced, we hope you will all continue to support us as you always have!

Stay tuned for more news about this exciting adventure!!

HAPPY STITCHING,

Jen Kingwell

Looks a great place for me to have a holiday 'over East'!
I'll see you when you're settled in. Moving is always a challenge.

Today is your opening day! Congratulations!

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.
PERFECT!
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…

Delilah - Lucy's Journey - Part 3

Hello friends,
Half way into this quilt and with every stitch I fall more and more in love. With each block completed, I drag all my blocks out again and lay them out. I posted this image recently on Instagram (@lucycarsonkingwell) of my 'Design Floor' to gauge where it's all heading and it's looking okay!!

Delilah has been a test - I have learnt many new skills and it is definitely the most technical quilt I have taken on to date... but it's not hard! The templates are fantastic. I swear working with acrylic templates makes it quite challenging to go back to temp-plastic! These templates are ensuring my blocks come out correct, every time.
Month 5 brought us North Star. "Woo hoo. Straight lines!" I hear the masses cheer as they open their mail!
I knew it was time to start focusing on other colours other than pink and aqua. I tend to gravitate towards these two colours because they seem to go with everything to me... especially in the Liberty of London f…

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!
