Cat Designs

“Let me be one of the first to congratulate and encourage such young Australian talent as we have in Tess McOnie and wish her all the success I’m sure she has coming her way. Stained Glass designs lend themselves perfectly for my craft, Russian Punchneedle Embroidery, with my Igolochkoy™ Punchneedles. Cat Lovers will welcome Tess’s designs and will interpret them with inspiring and challenging techniques.  I love the clear outlines defining exactly what I need for my craft of Punchneedle and it is with absolute delight that I will include these in my repertoire.”
Judy Hall, Sewing/Quilting/Embroidery Instructor, Punch with Judy - NSW Australia

“It's hard to pick a favourite from this parade of 'purrrfect puddy-tats'. Oozing personality and brimming with life, they will absolutely delight cat lovers to the core. With amazing perspective & artistic skills, a humorous sense of the ridiculous and a quirky touch, Tessa captures the essence of cat right down to the last drop. Tessa McOnie - WOW!”
Jillian Sawyer, Stained Glass Designer and Author - Western Australia

I am a cat lover, and found your book on cat designs today in a fabric store. I am thrilled. I LOVE cats... Right now I'm into.... machine embroidery, a little quilting (cats of course)... and acrylic painting. My eyes just popped when I saw the book, and had to have it. Now I can dream, what to do with them.

Just love your book 'Cat Designs' - am most impressed with the huge array of beautiful cats included. I am a co owner of a patchwork and quilting shop and would love to make a quilt of your designs. Being an avid cat lover - our household currently has a Birman, Burmese and a moggie in residence (plus a Bichon Frise) I was thrilled to find your book of amazing designs.
