The last year or so has been challenging for all of us. While the various lockdowns have meant our shop door has remained closed for more than a year now our website has been, with a few exceptions, keeping everyone supplied with fabric and patchwork & quilting supplies throughout this difficult time.
If you think we are worthy of an award in the British Sewing Awards 2021 we would be delighted if you would nominate us. There are several categories where you can show your appreciation for your favourite brands, retailers events etc.
Stock of all three is limited so don’t delay if you are interested.
Di Ford Hall was one of the world’s most influential quilt artists and fabric designers who sadly passed away last year. She was known worldwide for her passion of vintage quilts and textiles. The Windermere Quilt is the final pattern Di Ford Hall created, a true textile heirloom and a beautiful tribute to a remarkable quilt artist. The quilt features traditional applique and broderie perse prints from her previous Windermere, Mailing Road and Rochester collections, with the gorgeous medallion print forming the focal point of this stunning quilt.
Designed and begun by Di, it has recently been completed by her friends The Secret Sewing Sisters. The pattern has been written by Lenora of Elmgrove Patchwork. The pattern forms part of a 32 page booklet which also includes a tribute to Di. A small donation from each booklet sold will go to The Leukaemia Foundation.
The estimated delivery date for Windermere is in late August.
This queen-sized (88" square) quilt features a variety of traditional blocks from log cabin to Dresden fans divided by graduated sashings and cornerstones that give the quilt centre a glow. The quilt is made from a collection called memories by Kaye England: a collection of mostly small patterns in rich blues, greens, warm golds, reds, a touch of orange and a variety of neutrals. The result is a traditional quilt with a varied colour palette that has a structured, but scrappy style - an heirloom for today and tomorrow.
The kit includes all the fabrics for the quilt top and binding (16.5m approximately) plus full pattern instructions.
Reflections is available to pre-order now with an estimated delivery date of October/November.
The centre of this queen-sized quilt (86" square) features a cleverly constructed square-set, nine block layout that fools the eye into seeing five of the blocks as set on-point, creating a dynamic visual effect. A beautiful floral frames the quilt with the darker colours drawing the eye in to the central design. The Aubergine kit includes all the fabrics for the quilt top and binding plus full pattern instructions.
Aubergine is available to pre-order now with and estimated delivery date of November/December.
