Punch with Judy - February 2009 Newsletter
An apology to all that the workload of processing all our January Birthday Orders and three Shows in February, has prevented me from having the time to write a lengthy informative Newsletter. March will bring me back to normal, if that's ever the case!
This Newsletter is to remind
everyone visiting the AQC in

ASG (Australian Sewing
I am currently organizing a
Hands-On Class with
Two Retreats to be held in September this year rather than previously advertised April. With so many Shows in February and March, plus Easter, we all just needed a little break around that time. So, decision time made it September. Full details next Newsletter. Plus, our Online Classes for the Pleat Maker will be commencing in April.
3. WHAT'S NEW
Visit the What's New? section often as I add products as they arrive and there's always something exciting.
The new Multi-Angled Wedge Ruler from Creative Curves has appealed to me for its absolute ingenious method of creating wonderful wedge inspired blocks that any beginner can achieve with no maths involved. Please do visit and read about it. The sampler quilt blocks that are included in the package are spectacular.
Just arrived, but not yet on the website, LickityGrip. LicketyGrip is a grip enhancer developed specifically for the sewing/craft world for our specific needs, such as free-motion quilting or embroidering. It attracts moisture to give you a better grip for better control yet contains no dyes, no silicone, no wax, no latex, no rubber, no lanolin, no animal by-products, no salicylates - all ingredients are food grade! Wow! More later!
As I said, more of a what's happening on the Show Scene Newsletter.......
