...your sauce for patchwork and quilting supplies.



February Newsletter

Hello again, What a busy time I have had with the shop and the farm and the children starting back at school.  I was hoping to have worked out a routine by now but that doesn't seem to be the case.  I just seem to pop on what hat I need to when needed.  Some for those of you that are wondering what days I am open, I am still open by appointment and am quite flexible.  So just give me a call and we will work something out.

Our January stitching day has come and gone and we had a great day.  The 365 perpetual hexagons are keeping those busy that are working on them and at has bought a lot of chatter to the stitching table.  Anyone that still wants to join in I can still get you the books and papers.  For those of you who would like to get involved with the hexagon challenge but don't want to commit to 365, I am also running the 52 hexagons which can be completed using papers or Eppiflex templates.  Just let me know which one you would prefer.  This is a example of a hexagon I stitched last night.


Our February Stitching day has snuck up on me as well and it will be this Thursday 22nd Feb, here at Pinegrove.  I hope you will be able to make it .  10am to 4pm, please bring your own lunch.


A couple of weekends ago I hosted Angie from Gnome Angel she came and taught us Fussy Cutting Fundamentals, we all had a great day learnt a lot regarding fussy cutting and fabric selection, we all certainly won't look at fabric in the same way again. I am looking at hosting her again in April/May. I am just waiting to secure an exact date from Angie.  Once I get a date I will let you all know as I have a few already on the waiting list.  Let me know if you are interested and I can add you to the list.

I have plenty of new stock loaded on the website as well and new things keep rolling in every week.  Follow me on Instagram to check out what is going on in the shop.

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend and have had some time for something that makes you happy.

Happy Stitching



Stitching Day

Hello there, I hope you are all getting some stitching time in this January and getting out of the Heat.  I plan to have a couple of inside days to dodge this intense heat we are having at the moment.

I would like to thank you all for supporting my Opening Sale that has just finished, you all certainly kept me busy and I hope you are enjoying using your beautiful fabrics that you purchased.

Keep an eye on the website as I am still adding lots of products to it.  It will all come accross the new product page.  Also keep an eye on instagram and facebook.  That is where I post what is going on in the shop.

This is just a reminder email about the First Stitching Day that is to be held at "Pinegrove" on Thursday 25th January, 10am till 4pm.  Bring your own lunch. 

I hope you can make it, RSVP is essential by Tuesday 23rd please.


Happy Stitching


Small Clarification

Hello again.  I have had a couple of questions regarding the stitching day.  Just a clarification, this won't be kicking off until January.  I will send out another reminder as we get closer.  I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Safe and Happy New Year!  I hope you all get plenty of stitching time over the festive season!

Happy Stitching



Exciting News

Well some exciting changes are happening here at Fabric Sauce!  The Business has been sold and relocated as off today 15th December 2017.  I am Mandy Schiller the new owner and the excited one!  This is my dream come true so I am feeling so blessed to be able to share my passion with you, all things fabric and all things quilting.  I have relocated Fabric Sauce to my home at Milvale.  The shop will be online and open by appointment and some certain days.  As I wear a few different hats from Mum to Farmer’s Wife it is always advisable to give me a call to make sure I am around before a visit.


I am hoping to bring some fun and exciting things to Fabric Sauce.  One very important detail I have been working on, is Sue Daley,  I have been talking with Sue and her team and we are in the process of organising a trunk show/demo day here at Fabric Sauce next year.  She is such a busy lady so we are just trying to fit in with her busy busy schedule.  We are aiming for May/June next year at this stage.


The shop will be open on Tuesday 19th December 2pm to 5pm, and Wednesday 20th December 10am to 4pm, if anyone would like to come and visit me and check out the new Fabric Sauce Shop.  Give me a call if you need some directions, it will all depend where you are coming from.

I will be having an opening sale 40% off fabric meterage and 20% off pre-cuts, tools, notions & patterns.  Only while stocks last.  Don’t worry if you can’t make it out over these days the sale will be kicking off again on Boxing Day to the 16 January 2018.

Anyone looking for a last minute Christmas Gifts, Fabric Sauce do offer Gift Vouchers.

I am going to be running a stitching day here at Fabric Sauce on the 4th Thursday of every month for any of you that are interested.  All Welcome.  I will send out another notification as it gets closer.

Lastly, I would like to Thank Keryl, she has been amazing over the last 5 years as the face of Fabric Sauce.  She is such an incrediabley talented stitcher and such a generous person. So Thank you Keryl for all you have done for me during our transiton period.

And Thank you to all my friends and family who have offered me support and well wishes, it means so much to me. I am truly so lucky to have beautiful friends & family like you.  Thank You.

Happy Stitching
