After taking a little break from blogging, I'm back. Here's what's been happening over the past few months:)

"Maker of the Month" shows people's projects, it's inspiring & interactive,  there's nothing better than seeing what you use your fabrics for. Some entries have even been non sewing projects. All are welcome. To see all the entries visit my Facebook Page. Here are the Winning Entries so far, chosen at random by local Louth businesses:

January - Nadia of Wolds Away Clothing 
Nadia used fabric from the shop for the piping on her daughters dress

February - Kathleen Elsom
Kathleen used Moda Essential Dots for the borders of this beautiful embroidered quilt & bag

March - Yvonne made her table runner using a selection of Moda dots & design fabrics

April - Nicola Lavis made these cute matching dresses using Dashwood Fabrics

May - Lynne made her Easter Egg hanger using Blend Fabrics Promise of Spring

June Winner to be announced next week :) 
Entries have to use fabrics from The Little Fabric Store to enter
 It's going on for the full year

Minimum spend is £15 to redeem the coupon. These are then posted to your home address. A great opportunity to use a variety of thread weights & colours, all Free :)

I made up some Lucky Dip Bags with all money raised going to the Alzheimer's Society. Sue Wilkie used her fabrics & thread to make this sweet fabric wallet

I visited the Lindsey Patchwork "Quilts in the Wolds" 2017
A very inspiring event, it was very difficult to choose a favourite, that's for sure
