Hello Dionne

Received threads today in afternoon mail.  They are great, just what I wanted.  Your service is next to none ……………… just great.

Thankfully today was a little cooler here ……….. not much rain but it’s a start. Hopefully more cooler weather to follow???????????

Hi Dionne

Thanks so much for the prompt service, the tapestry and threads are lovely. Tapestry is more fantastic than the picture

Can’t wait to start.

Hi Dionne,

My order arrived today, which is super-fast for you to process & package and then for the postie to get it from the Southern Highlands in NSW to Noosa in Qld. I am thrilled with the entire order – the canvases are even more gorgeous than I imagined and such a great mix of themes & colours. They should keep me out of mischief for a few months & then I’ll be back in touch to order more!

Cheers & thanks so much – your store has such beautiful things.

Jayne, Noosa, QLD, 22nd September 2016




Thank you for my tapestry it arrived today.  I haven’t opened it yet as it is not my birthday till next week but I appreciate the very prompt delivery.

Looking forward to starting the Bears

Yesterday I received an order that I placed on the 19th December which included a note that my postage cost had been reduced because it was possible to send my order as a letter and not a parcel.  I really appreciate the speed with which you despatched this order and the fact that you chose to take the cheaper option for postage and refunded the balance.  I don’t know how you managed to get the mail here so quickly as, I’m sure, Australia Post has already introduced the slower mail delivery service to our area!!!!!  I just wanted to say thank you for the great service.  Now that I have found you, you will be the place that I will go to when I need embroidery items.

Helen, Mooroolbark VIC, 24th December 2015



Hi – I’ve just done a purchase online from you and I just wanted to say that I moved from the Southern Highlands just over 12 months ago to here, way up in North Queensland. I was looking for the items I’ve bought from you, up here in the shops in Mackay and also online from Queensland websites because I thought I would try to keep my purchases in the state in which I live … however I could not find all the things I wanted in one place, so remembered you in Mittagong and bingo!!!! everything I needed. So thank you so much for still being there and being such a beautiful store – I wish I was still there to visit you in person – I did quite a few times over the six and a half years I lived in the Highlands – I loved it. Thanks again.

Kind regards

Virginia, Dows Creek QLD, 20th March 2015



Thanks so much for the email – the tapestries arrived the very next day and are beautiful.  I’ve never had anything delivered that fast!

Thanks again

Doris, Monash ACT, 11th January 2015



Thanks so much Dionne for the great service. We have family knitting books and needles that date back as far as the 1950s, all in imperial, and I was finding it very difficult to track down a gauge with the imperial sizes on it, so was thrilled to find yours on the net. They have arrived safely, and it was an added bonus to find the American sizes on the reverse as well. It was very kind of you to reduce the postage.

Thanks again,

Ainslie   Alfredton VIC, 18th December 2014



WOW!! Thanks so much for your prompt service & honesty re postage. I will be

sure to let the other ladies in my sewing group about your great service.
Annette, Lithgow NSW, 17th November 2014



What wonderful service!! Thank you so much for sending my order so promptly……..and thanks to Aust Post for prompt delivery……something we can’t often say!! Ordered Thursday 3rd and in my hands Monday 7th. Wow…….

I appreciate your help and will certainly contact you again should I need anything for my embroidery. We have a ‘craft’ and fabric shop in our town, but there is only a limited range of embroidery needs.

Again, my thanks, and now I can’t wait to get started on my camels!

Barbara, Stanthorpe NSW, 7th July 2014



Thank you so much for my DMC Perle 8 threads. Thank you for ordering and posting them so quickly, The service you provide is outstanding you even answer the phone. This is something many people fail to do forcing customers to use e-mail and text. For those of us that are of a particular age we value personal service.

Hi Dionne,


I recently ordered some fabric from you and your shipping was so prompt and the packaging so beautiful that I was wondering if it was possible to buy samples of fabrics (ie., 25 ct Lugana, 28 ct Cashel and/or Jobelan, that sort of thing).


I generally work on Aida, but I’ve been told it’s not recommended for larger pieces. The problem is that I’m not sure how to get samples of fabrics to figure out what I like and don’t like without buying fat eighths or quarters that might possibly go to waste.


Are you able to offer samples, or do you know of someone who does offer sample packs in Australia? (I’d rather not buy from overseas if at all possible.) If it happens that your half metre x 10cm cut is in fact your sample cut, please let me know and I’ll place an order.


Emma  South Australia, 12th April 2014


Thanks, Dionne, that’s great news. I hope it wasn’t too much trouble for such a tiny order.

Thanks for the great service, am really happy to have discovered your business. There are no yarn suppliers here in the inner western suburbs of Melbourne so am pleased to find a good online service.


Paula    Newport VIC, 9th April 2014



Hi Dionne,

I sat up late last night – and have a look at this! Woo hoo! I’m so thrilled with it. Thanks for a great class. Between this and the trammed tapestries, I’m hooked.


Margaret  Bowral NSW, 30th March 2014





What service, ordered yesterday and at my front door at 8.45am this morning.  Amazing,
Thank you. I am thrilled with the colours.

Maureen, Blue Mountains, NSW, 12th February 2014



Would like to thank you for the quick despatch of my recent order, I only ordered my tapestries on Monday and was pleasantly surprised to receive the order this morning.   We recently moved to Queensland from New South Wales but prior to moving was able to visit you in person.   I am now very happy that I can still visit you if not in person.

Thank you again for the pleasant and caring service.

Di   Alexandra Hills QLD, 8th January 2014



Hello Dionne,

Just thought I would give a courtesy email to say thankyou.  My frames and accessories arrived today. Can’t believe it, they were quicker than auspost. Thankyou so much for being so prompt and a pleasure to deal with.

It’s great to have the 48 inch frame.  Thankyou for a perfect service and I look forward to dealing with you again. I may end up getting the full set of wheels and bolts for my frame yet and maybe some Aida or even weave. Just have to save a little more.

Have a lovely day

Kind regards

Rosemary Virginia QLD, 16th September 2013



Hi Dionne,

Thank you so much for your wonderful service, helping me choose a yarn and colour when I made a spontaneous purchase last week.
Thank you even more, for exchanging all the yarn for me after I got home (5 hours away) and looked at it,  and thought “I can’t knit that colour, I need a lighter colour.”
You made it so easy, and the wool has arrived today.

Also, the bamboo circular knitting pins are perfect for knitting 2 ply. Thanks for the recommendation.

Kind regards,
Annie  The Junction NSW, 20th June 2013
