New Fabrics

I have just uploaded the fabrics I picked up from Robert Kaufman yesterday at their Open House. Steve and I have a great day picking fabrics off the shelves, had some nice food and managed to avoid getting stuck on the M25.

I picked up some great background landscape prints like this treescape print which are available at £9.60 a metre.

Steve was allowed to pick some fabrics of his own ;-) so there is now a new section on the website called "Steve's Top Picks" where his choices will be featured. It will be an eclectic mix of fabrics and prices. His first choices include a wonderful red music fabric, a tropical bird scene and this cute gingerbread man panel.

I also ordered some great oriental prints which feature a full width print.....so you know a wall hanging kit will be available and also some fantastic batik stripes which will look great in a rail fence pattern. These should be delivered before the Festival of Quilts in August, which is coming up fast!

Willow Fabrics

The Willow fabrics by McKenna Ryan are now up on the website. These lovely gentle fabrics are so useful as they are multi-toned which means you can create different colour results by using different parts of the fabrics. They are priced at £11.50 a metre and will also be featured in the new products section of the next issue of Fabrications magazine.
I will be working on uploading the new King Tut colours next. Reluctantly, I have had to increase the price of these of £5.25 a reel. This is the first price increase since I started stocking these threads which must be almost 5 years ago? and is still one of, if not the best, prices in the country. Postage remains at a flat rate of £2.25 per order for UK customers.
Those of you following my updates on twitter will be aware that I made a quick quilt using the wavy stripe from the Opulence collection on Saturday night. Pics and a free pattern for you to download will be available shortly.
