When we put the word out about the Charity Quilt we knew our loyal followers would get involved but we're quite amazed by how far and wide the love is coming from!
The postie dropped these off, and the first thing I noticed was the stamp. So cute! We love an elephant here.

The blocks are lovely. Thank you, Saranya!

Now in BOM news. We have limited places left in Gypsy Wife by Jen Kingwell (I think about 10 programs left). It's $40 per month for our Australian customers and $45 for internationals (both prices include postage and handling). The program runs for 12 months, and what you see is what you get. There are no fabric replacements!

E-mail OR call the shop on (03) 9596 7225 to sign up!

Starter Kits and A Giveaway

We've completed the NEW starter kits for Green Tea and Sweet Beans. A few people have asked to see them before purchasing as we started they aren't all original fabrics so I have taken a few photos for you.

All hand picked by Jen to keep the look and feel of the original quilt.
These kits are $125 and are LIMITED! To order please ring us on (03) 9596 7225 or e-mail
In other news. We're doing a GIVEAWAY on Facebook. Like the 'Amitie Textiles' page, and like the photo we posted (same as below) to be in the running!

Star Candy

Here's a few more blocks that we've received for our charity quilt.
Elizabeth sent in this one.

Carolyn Forster from Quilting-on-the-Go made this.

Christine has been very busy and sent us these 4. She is a beginner and has done a fantastic job!

And Karen was also very generous and made 4!

We're still accepting blocks for anybody who wants to help such an amazing cause. More info HERE.

Green Tea and Sweet Beans UPDATE

After such interest in the starter kits...
I can't show a photo yet as we're still working on them! These won't have as much original fabric as the other kits did but they do have the newspaper and text backgrounds. Fabrics are being hand picked by Jen to keep the original look and feel!

We have plenty of copies of the book as well!

Happy Friday
