Retirement from 163 View St.

It’s Time !!!   Shop Retirement  sale !!! 

I am retiring in the coming months - (anticipating  mid July), from my retail shop “Li’l Bloke’s” 163 View St, Bendigo after almost 19 years. 

It will be tinged with some sadness- leaving my Dad’s old address where he conducted his electrical business,  but at least I will retain my business name  (Li'l Bloke's) given by him in my childhood,  and will continue my business in a different format. 

I look forward to catching up with,  and personally thanking my past and current supporters/customers  and perhaps meeting some new ones over the next couple of months. If you can’t make it to take advantage of this sale, I thank you for your support over those 19 years, plus  6 though mail order prior to that. 

Sale includes - End of fabric bolt 50% and 

 40% off most other items. 

Some exclusions apply - details will be on my blog ( and posted in store hopefully by tomorrow. 

Mail order customers may take advantage of the sale prices but postage and handling will be applied on all items. 

Those participating in any of my Boms - these will still be available for you to continue. 

Take advantage of sales as business will continue and normal prices will resume after the sale. Get in quick !!! 

I plan to open my mini studio near to the end of August. 

Discounted Sale purchases will not count towards Fabric card rewards progress, 

so if you wish to take advantage of your fabric card, normal price will be charged then the appropriate bonus will be applied, or it can be used after August. 

In stock items only. 

Please feel free to share my post to spread the word.

I'm on Fb - both as Lynn Hyland and Li'l Bloke's

Had trouble calling me recently ? 
My phone was disconnected  for  3 weeks as I didn't want to go on an NBN contract. 
All is good now as my landline - same number 0354439195 is now being diverted to my mobile at no extra charge to you the caller. 
I haven't updated the message yet if I am unavailable to answer, but please leave a message.  

Round Robin Bears - a sneak peak !!!

Pulled out an old old UFO - a design of mine which will possibly be called "Round Robin Bears", as I am going to  add more borders...... mmmmmm ! Not sure of the size ofthe quilt   yet. 
 I am replacing the old button eyes and stitched mouths and noses with penned features. Then hopefully I'll finish the Broderie Perse borders  on the other two sides and corners. Let's hope it stays out of the UFO pile and gets completed over my Christmas break.  😏
The kits for this design will be limited to the amount of the beautiful border  fabric I can supply as I have had it stashed away for many years. 
Let me know if you're interested and I will put you on my list - can't guarantee a number yet until I work out how much border fabric will be needed. 

Reds anyone ?

Civil War/reproduction  reds anyone ?
Available as 16 x fat1/16ths (shown) $26.40
