May News

 

Hello Everyone

From today (1 May 2022) we are going to be doing things in the shop a little differently.

I have decided that all the subscriptions will be ended. I have cancelled all the paypal subscriptions already. The add on feature for subscriptions in the shop just will not work properly!!! and I pay so much to have that feature and the IT guys can't get it to work - SO -

NO more subscriptions!!

I will still make the magazine and the Club Patterns as usual, but you will get them through the shop as a single item. 

I'm really sorry if that throws a spanner into the engine but I have had so much stress with these issues in the shop and I feel I need to simplify things for all concerned.

Thank you  

xoxo

First up we have the 

Block of the Month for May

Its a Stegosaurus


Here's a look at our motley crew so far.... 


You can adopt your Dinosaur for $1 from my Online Shop.

The small fee goes towards feeding all the animals there.... thanks!


*********************************


Club Patterns


Club is now an open 'group' where anyone who would like
to buy the monthly patterns is welcome

There is a category (part of the pull down menu on top bar) in the shop 
called "Club Monthly" where you will 
find that particular month's patterns.



The Rhino is part of the quarterly blocks (12")
The Bear measures 16"
The Dragonfly measures 24"


Older patterns from 2021 also has a category where you can get the last year's club patterns.

You can find them all right HERE

Issue #33 is also available in the shop now

Our 'nod' to the honey bees has a quirky twist that I'm sure everyone will love.
The little gnome bees are hard at work..

Take a look at the flip book -



Our Honey Bees Issue 33 is available in the Online Shop
NO more subscriptions on a quarterly basis. 
The feature didn't work and wouldn't send out a link 

The magazine will now be a product you can buy directly in the shop whenever you like.

April BoM, Club and Mag.

 


Hello

Its already April and let's hope its a whole lot better than March.

Today we have Dino #4
a Pterodactyl



The pattern measures 12x16" (31x 41,9 cm)

Welcome to Quilt Club!

For April we see another quarterly block (a lovely black Rhino - 12") and the 
Nature blocks are a Lioness (24") and the Baobab Trees (16")

I decided to not go with the pop art in the large nature block anymore. It seemed
that not that many of you liked them as I had hoped.


Our lineup is growing for this year.
Last year's blocks (2021) can be found in the shop for sale now.


This CLUB is a subscription group that you can belong to
where we will be making modern blocks, random animals and birds, have a block swap and generally loads of fun.

***********************



Its also time for more exciting CLUB patterns!!

For March we have our 2 new blocks - An Eagle (24") and a Sea Turtle (16")

This year I want to make the larger nature blocks in the Pop Art colouring, but feel free to make your block up just as you like. If you prefer the 'real look' then you do you... no problem.

Older months blocks (Back issues of patterns) can be gotten from me directly for $12 per month you need. You will need to be part of the club to get them tho'



*************************

And Now!!
Something else too.

This is a Sunflower for Ukraine.

Their national flower is a Sunflower and their flag is blue and yellow (which looks like a field of sunflowers with the sky above it).

There is NO way in heck we can ever send them something that could make up for their losses right now, so Im giving away this Sunflower in the hope that when you make it you will think of them and pray for them and when you look at your wall hanging or cushion or table cloth, you think of how fragile life really is. My heart really hurts for these people, their pets, their homes, possessions. 


This is the link to go and download your free Sunflower (18") pattern.

Dinosaur Monthly Block

we have the February block - 
a Brontosaurus

Happy New Year!

 

Hello! and Happy New Year 2022!! 

I hope this year you are all blessed and have tons of time to sew!



This year we will be making Dinosaurs!! Yaaaay!

First up we have a Zuniceratops
The pattern measures 12x16"


Did you know that the word 'Ceratops' means horns on the head...
hmmm, now I know too...



You can adopt your Dinosaur for $1 from my Online Shop.

*** A lot of people ask me why the $1 for the block and all I can say is that I also need 
to support my family after both my sons lost their jobs during covid lockdowns and 
everyone is back here at home with mom.

12 Days Finale!

 


Hello to all fellow Sugar Cookie Enthusiasts!

Today is the last day of our
12 Days of Christmas 2021
'Sugar Cookies' Edition



This is the center block of the Sugar Cookies Mini Quilt / Wall hanging / Table Decoration.

The Gingerbread House Cookie block measures 16" (42 cm) 
and is also on the easier side of Intermediate level.


I have loved each of these cute cookie blocks and I hope you all have too.

You can find your warm Gingerbread House Sugar Cookie
for $4 in my Online Shop.



*************************************

Before we run off....

I want to talk about the 
Gingerbread Village EBook


This was a 12 Days event we made in 2016
It was an event that Marian Pena from Seams to be Sew and I worked on together
and presented it as a joint project.

I made the Village background and she made the Gingerbread Men to go with the village.


After Marian passed away in March 2021, it just seemed to hang in limbo about how this was going to  work now. I have since seen that her shop has been completely closed down and now this half of our project is hanging in the air. I've tried to find any of her patterns etc. but it seems they are all down now too.


I have decided that I am going to add Marian's half of the project to my Gingerbread Village EBook as a free 'add on' to complete the quilt. The price of the EBook is only for my patterns and the Applique gingerbread men that Marian made are a Free Add On with it.

If you have purchased my Gingerbread Village in this past year (2021) only!! then you can contact me about getting the Gingerbread Men to go with the EBook. ( janeenvn@gmail.com )
I can look up your purchase in my shop and then send you the Add On.
