Lynette says, “Using the correct type of hand sewing needles for the project in hand is essential “.

Lynette was born in the rural area of Dorset, England where she learned the art of painting, sewing, knitting and embroidery from her mother and grandmothers. While her family was growing up, Lynette found a love for quilting and through her whimsical patterns and unique style of embroidery and applique, launched a successful quilting business. Now living on the beautiful Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia,  Lynette runs The Little Quilt Shop and travels the world teaching and lecturing.

Visit Lynette’s on-line store – The Little Quilt Shop – and discover the cute hand painted buttons, notions, threads, patterns and many more unique sewing accessories.

Lynette hosted a Splendid day at her shop in Marcoola. It was such a privilege to meet all the Splendettes, some visiting from interstate and overseas,  all gathered to share our blocks and stories.  Read her story about her Splendid block here.

Lynette has designed over 15 fabric collections. Read about her new collection My heart’s at home fabric – Buy here.
