Newsletter June 2017


Greetings from Country Dawn Quilting

Hello Everyone

We're delighted to be able to tell you that we'll be launching the Baby Lock range of machines here at Country Dawn on Friday the 16th June!

Carol Maera from Baby Lock will be in store to demonstrate these innovative and unique machines.

The Baby Lock Sashiko machine perfectly replicates this distinctive and celebrated stitch with a unique needle system and adjustable stitches and spacing. Now you can add a hand-stitched touch to any project with a household machine that’s truly the first of its kind.

Baby Lock was the first to introduce the world to overlockers with easy air threading and no tension knobs, using ExtraordinAir™ Threading, you thread your loopers all at once with the push of a button! A quick gust of air gets your thread through each looper with minimal effort - sounds fabulous!!

Come and join us, watch Carol put these machines through their paces, and have a hands-on test drive yourself.

These are so cute, and the full collection is now available here at Country Dawn - in-store and on-line.

Personalise and add that special touch to your project by choosing a theme embellishment that matches it.

There are countless choices … dog bones, ladybugs, ballet slippers, birthday cakes, baseballs, footballs, flowers, seashells, cowboy boots, baby bottles, fishing rods, balloons, flowers, planes, trains, automobiles, dogs, cats and more.

The detail is excellent, and quality is tops. And a great little gift idea for someone that has everything!




Click Here to see the Needle Nannies


The Needle Nanny incorporates two very strong Rare Earth magnets that promise to make it one of the most versatile and indispensable tools in your sewing kit. The magnetic back is removable, which allows it to be worn as a pin, and the powerful (and pretty!) magnetic surface acts as a needle minder to keep your needles and scissors firmly in place while you work. Even non-quilters can appreciate this clever accessory: Wear it as a magnetic pin to add a little extra flair to hats, coats, shirts, and scarves!

Needle Nannies are 1-inch in diameter.

Please note that because of the specialised Rare Earth magnetic back, Needle Nannies do not fit into our interchangeable magnetic jewellery bases. Also, they are not waterproof and should never have prolonged exposure to liquids. Due to the powerful magnets, NEEDLE NANNIES SHOULD NOT BE WORN NEAR A PACEMAKER.
