French General’ Le Fete de Noel’ has arrived

25 Jul


Hi Everyone

How about making a quilt like the one pictured, the one in the photograph uses the new French General range ‘Le Fete de Noel’ and we at Sawmillers have the entire range! It is a lovely range which, for those French General fans we have come to expect.

Call in and check it out, it is very reasonably priced due to the excellent exchange rate at the moment, you can also sign up for the French General Club whilst you are here and get to hear the benefits of being a part of it firsthand.

On a more festive note, the Christmas in July sale is still on, we extended it to 3rd August to allow for children returning to school after the holidays, there is 30% discount on Stof, Benartex and Timeless fabrics as well as a 50% reduction on the remaining Jim Shore figurines, there are only a few left so don’t leave it too late.

We also have Rotary Mats in for those who find it difficult either walking around your cutting table or getting fed up with turning the mat, using the rotary cutting mat, you can turn and you stay in one place! The other new product we have is the  Quilters Cut n Press mat, these would be great for Symposium as they are a cutting mat and pressing mat too, no queuing for the ironing board!

Well, that’s all for now, Happy Quilting

Sawmillers Closed For A Day

9 Jul

Hi Everyone
Just a quick note to say Kevin & I will be attending the funeral for Libby Thomsen on Friday 11th July,  she  died so unexpectedly on Sunday 6th July which will mean Sawmillers & Stonestead Devonshire Teas will be closed all day.

We are sure you will understand

With thanks


French General Fabric Club Details

4 Jul


General Napoleon Bonaparte aka The French General!!!

Hi Everyone,
So the reaction to the French General Club we are starting up has been great, but now it is time to tell you what you get if you subscribe to the club.

1)         There is no joining fee
2)          Each month you get 5 Fat Quarters of French General fabric, if a new range arrives you will get a further 5 Fat Quarters regardless of when you received the usual monthly ones, this means you get the the very first new fabric before it goes on display! The Fat Quarters will be at the reduced price of $7.00 each and cannot be exchanged, however you may want to swap with another member.
3)          You will also be entitled to a 10% discount on any of the French General fabrics, all we ask is that the one of the fabrics you select is a minimum 1 metre cut, the 10% discount also applies to our own 5″ Squares, 10″ Squares and Jelly Rolls.
4)          You will be issued with a Membership Card and we require you to present this card when you come into Sawmillers to purchase your French General fabric, if you don’t present it then the 10% discount won’t apply, Loyalty Cards are not eligible for French General Club members who purchase French General fabric, but are still eligible for other fabrics. If you are ordering online you will need to quote your membership number, the facility for your discount is available through the website, but you can contact me direct if it is easier.
5)          You will also receive a Mystery enclosure with your Fat Quarters each month.
6)          You may cancel your subscription at any time, but we do ask for a 1 month notice
7)          We require your credit card details for our files, along with your postal address, the postage will be $4.00 in New Zealand and overseas it will be the real cost set by NZ Post for the 5 Fat Quarters, this may be different if other fabric is ordered, we do our best to keep these cost to a minimum.

If you have any other queries prior to registering for the French General Club don’t hesitate to contact me.

Looking forward to hearing from you all & Happy Quilting
