Stitching News

Hoot Hoot Hoot!...
That's an owl-y toot toot toot fanfare for a finish... he he he
Jenny Barlaston made this extremely cute little wall hanging.
It will be gifted and is sure to make someone very happy
Jackie Janome is working on a project that needs lots of strip sets making ready to be cut up again. Dotty is helping her keep them in the right order. This will be a large bed quilt and is Jackie's second patchwork project, the first being the trusty Railfence table runner.
Sporty Sue finished quilting her beautiful Jelly Roll sampler quilt... and didn't she do lovely free motion quilting!! Sue spent the day hand stitching her binding... it's was long way round... but worth every stitch.
Little Annette arrived first thing in the morning with one of our pre-cut 6" squares of novelty fabric packs to stitch. She went home with a finished kiddy quilt top and backing fabric... all ready for making a sandwich at the quilt cave next week... a very productive day.
Barbie is back with us and, after counting up her flower blocks, realised that she'll be needing a further 15 to get the quilt to the size she planned. Barbie has the Flower Festival book so there were still lots to choose from... they're all fun and quirky, don't you think?
Shop News...
The clearance fabrics have been popular all week, there's still a good choice at £5.00 per metre.
Beautiful Blues and Creams arrived from Moda along with the Road 15 collection
A new roll of Hobbs Fusible Wadding has been delivered... it's particularly good for smaller projects, like Sue's Tote Bags... an upcoming workshop in Angie's Very Own Patchwork and Quilting Shop!
It's 96 inches wide and £14.00 per metre, we have various smaller pieces available too.
I'm off to shower... it's out Know Your Machine... Juki HZL F600 day today... a fabulous sewing machine!
