Wish List

I have lots of new Fabrics & Gift ideas arriving. I'm getting very excited about my first Christmas in the Shop. 

I now have a Wish List available in the Shop. Most of us Crafters would love any Fabrics to assist our Project list, I know if anyone asks me it's either Fabric or Wool. The difficult part is which design & type do they go for. Now you can email me or pop in the shop with your gift request, making sure your bought gifts are exactly what you want on Christmas Day. If you're anything like me I love making a start on a new project over the Christmas period. Happy, happy, happy :)

A Field Guide

Autumn is here, I love the way a new season sparks memories. Bonfire Night, I just can't get enough of the smell in the air and how it transports me back to my childhood.

This beautiful Collection by Janet Clare - A Field Guide - is now in stock. It's Janet's second Collection for Moda, a UK Designer. With it's muted natural tones it works wonderfully for the Autumn Season. Janet's inspiration came from her boys who were always collecting things whilst out & about. These then became special treasures.

- Priced at £3.00 a Fat Quarter / £12.00 a metre -

I'm making a Quilted Hand Sewn Cushion to show case these fabrics. It's such a timeless Collection, can you tell I love it - Helen -
