News and What’s New

This year I have been working with woollen fabrics, felt and silk as well as cottons.  I have made two throws from woollen fabric – one with appliqued leaves and one in heather moorland colours.  The wools are finely woven and a joy to work with.

It was great to see that the Christian Dior winter/fall 2018 collection features patchwork.  Thus inspired, I have reduced my stash of silks by revisiting crazy patchwork so beloved of the Victorians and have made a skirt and a waistcoat – you will certainly be able to spot me at the shows!  I have enjoyed using Perle  threads to embellish silk, wool and felt.  We now have a selection of Perle No 8 in stock

I am delighted to say that we now have more of the Anni Downs’ 12 Days of Christmas panel which has been so popular.

On Friday 5 and Saturday 6 October I will be having two Open Days.  There will be the chance to sit down and make a bauble as well as stocking up on all the latest fabrics, with a discount.
