    Smile Joan In New Zealand. Kia Ora

    Time to to say Hi, and thank everyone for all the amazing inspiring pictures, and wonderful advice. I have been viewing this site for a few years now, and finally ( I can be a bit of a slow starter, computerwise) have figured out how to introduce myself. Its Autumn now here in New Zealand, and just the right weather for quilt making. Your prices for fabric amaze me, the average price of quilting fabric if NZ$24 to $30 a metre (nearly 40 inches). Often wonder if it is because we live at the bottom of the world!

    Last I looked it was around $1 Aussie dollar to $1-03 US Dollar.
    Shipping is always a killer when buying from the US

    Welcome from good old Indiana...not to far from Chicago. Our prices might be cheaper, but I have seen some beautiful patterns and colors in the quilts made from Down Under. Hope to hear more from you. This place is such an amazing thing. Where else could you make friends so easily and quickly as here? Love the strings that bind us all together.
