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.
