Here at The Country Yard we carry many of the world’s best-known quilting and stitching designers – from the fabulous Rosalie Dekker to the talented Gail Pan, the fun and fresh Bird Brain Designs, and of course the wonderful Lynette Anderson, just to name a few!
But what many people don’t realise is that we also have our very own exclusive designs created right here by The Country Yard designers: and while we don’t want to blow our own trumpet, we think they’re very special indeed!
Designs with a purpose
While this may simply look like a beautiful design, in reality this is the most functional pattern you will create this year! Our in-house designed Spools and Star Block Holder has come about from a need for a convenient and secure way of storing your blocks while in production…
And who better to come up with the concept than mother-daughter design team Kerryn and Annalese! While Kerryn is well-known to those who drop by our store, Annalese is the behind-the-scenes design guru who comes up with the fabulous patterns. We just love this pattern, as it’s functional, flawless, and so much fun to make!
Unique and functional gifts
We’ve also launched two gorgeous Gardener’s Journal cover kitsets, which would make a perfect gift for anyone who loves to keep a diary, writes notes, or simply adores their garden! Another exclusive design from The Country Yard, and another pleasingly practical piece that is truly useful.
We love how Kerryn and Annalese have put their heads together for The Country Yard, coming up with these special designs that are sure to please.
A gardener’s delight
We’ve noticed how much our wonderful customers and fellow stitchery friends love their gardens, and with this in mind we’ve brought out a delightful range of garden-themed patterns. Once more, these designs are exclusive to The Country Yard – so if you have a friend or a family member who’s ‘done it all’, you’ll be sure to surprise them with one of these patterns!
Try our Birds are Singing Oval Pin Cushion to whet their appetite – this is a simply beautiful stitchery design, and it comes in a convenient kit which includes your pattern, your design and your fabric. We’ve left the thread selection up to you, as this allows for a truly personalised look and feel!
We’ve also created our very own mystery stitchery: A Quote Garden is also garden-themed, and showcases a variety of lovely garden quotes and sayings.
“I am an embroiderer but a few years ago I took up the challenge of doing some patchwork. I went to the Country Yard, met Kerryn and her girls, and was introduced to their Mystery Quilts. These suited me perfectly especially when they combined embroidery and I have since completed several of these quilts. All instructions and patterns are clear and easy to follow. Kerryn and her girls are always welcoming, pleasant and helpful with their advice.” Noeline Seymour, Whangarei
