Stitching News


Princess Jackie came to make her duckie sandwich. She made a lovely backing to complement the front. You will be seeing that pretty soon I expect. This is such a cute quilt design with quite a few little personalised details for the cricketer it will be gifted to.

Hilary Hat wanted to make an easy-ish baby gifting quilt. The recipients like cats and Hilary loves bright colours so that was a simple sort out. The rail fence design for the top was ready lick-etty-split so Hilary came back to choose some border fabric.

Our Pam finished the second gifting pillow with more fabulous zig-zaggy quilting, which is perfect for the dinosaur design, me thinks. Both of Pam's cushions have now been gifted and the new Granny is super chuffed with them.

Shirley came to make her quilt sandwich. This is her first quilt sized quilt...  a table runner and a couple of cushions were great practice pieces. But Shirley also has a new Juki DX 7 so it shouldn't be too much of a tricky task.

In my shop.
The Bitty Bolt Bonanza will continue this week. Empty a bolt to receive 10% discount off the whole fabric piece price.
The Kids Quilts patterns will still have 25% off the marked price and I'm happy to help you choose the fabrics if you would like to kit up your project.

I have made a final decision on the Annual Pilgrimage trip to the Festival Of Quilts for this year.
The coach has been cancelled and re-booked for 2022. I'm sorry for those few who will be disappointed. There was no hope of filling the coach with enough people. The tickets are non-refundable. You need to have had 2 vaccinations and a negative Covid test on top...  All adding up to too much financial risk.
I've waited and pondered the whole thing but it's too close now and I still don't know whether I, me, my very own self, will go.

The Sunday Funday Sewday booked for Sunday 22nd of August is now fully booked and I have a waiting list in place, so it looks like we are all eager to get back to safe social sewing.
