Happy New Year
It has been a long time since we posted any updates on our website so we humbly apologise. Our only excuse is that we have been busy, busy, busy which in business is a good thing. We have an exciting year ahead with lots of projects in the planning stages.Just to give you a taste of whats to come here are a few teasers:
* We are planning a sit and sew friendship group based around our
customers love of hexagons. Our brains are working overtime with
ideas for what we plan to be a relaxed and fun group of like minded
stitchers. At this point in time we invisage this group meeting once a
month on a Saturday.
Stay tuned for more details...........
* Without realising it until recently we have discovered that we have
quite a few different Elizabeth Hartman books and also a range of
her fabrics. We have decided now to go the whole hog so to speak
and have ordered a few of her patterns and are going to run her
fabulous quilt "Fancy Forest" as a block of the month later in the year.
We have also ordered a range of fabrics that complement this quilt
If you think you would like to participate in the forest journey with us
please let us know.
* Keep an eye out for the new Homespun Block of the Month by
Natalie Bird in the February edition of the magazine. The quilt
combines pieced,appliqued and stichery blocks using Tilda fabric
and Kona Solids. We will be stocking all the fabrics required for this
* We know it seems a long way off but like good girl guides we are
already planning and preparing for our next trip to Quilt Market in Houston in October. We have had such a great response from the goodies we sourced from Quilt Market in Minneapolis last year that
we have decided we need (or want) to go again. But don't panic our lovely shop will remain open for the duration of our sojourn and will
be left in the very capable hands of our friend and class tutor Leanne Humber.
We hope you are all finding some relief from the heat and doing some stitching.
Cheers for now,
Alison and Sharon
