Happy Christmas from The Crafty Quilter

Well Christmas is nearly here and it has certainly felt very seasonal this year with all the snow and frost this past week. The shop is open until 4pm tomorrow on Christmas Eve for anyone wishing to venture out for any last minute quilting supplies to last them over the holiday period. I have been busy quilting in the shop while it has been cold, which has been lovely!
The shop is closed on Christmas Day and will reopen at 10am on Tuesday 29 December. The opening hours for that week will be 10am till 5pm on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. I am closed again on New Year’s Day before returning to normality on Saturday 2 January 2010 and the usual opening hours.
The Annual Sale starts in the shop at 10am on Tuesday 29 December with many fabrics at £4.00 a metre and other items will be available at reduced prices.  The Christmas shop starts its half price sale the same day and don’t forget you can get a nice meal in Hayden’s restaurant in the complex. 
My sale will start online on the website on 2 January for those of you unable to get to the shop. though fabrics at £4.00 a metre is quite good incentive to pay it a  visit …….....

The other big news is that I am expanding into the unit next door which will become a classroom for the classes I will be starting in 2010. A class list will be available shortly.

It has been an amazing year for me both personally and professionally in the business and I just wanted to thank those who have been so supportive of me, namely my parents and especially Steve without whom none of this would have been possible.

Lovely Flowers

The first few fabrics from this new collection from Sevenberry fabrics in Japan have been so well received that I have stocked some more designs from the collection.


I now have a tiny polka dot, pinstripe, gingham check as well as a pretty floral co-ordinate. The fabrics are up on the website and are priced at £9.60  a metre

88190-84   88190-57   6172-31

The Dinosaur panel print from I Dig Dinos is due back in stock again very shortly and the next exciting collection to arrive should be Twleve Moons from Robert Kaufman.

The last few weeks have been incredibly busy in the shop but I have still tried to find a bit of time to work on the web pages for the two challenges from this year as well as the next block of the month and hope to have more details of these ready soon.
