Mon coeur

A lovely detail from the 'C'est Bien' French General embroidery sampler on this Valentines Day. Maybe today is the perfect day to do only what your heart desires. Happy Sunday everyone!

Jeana Kimball's Sharps Needles

We have some new needles by Jeana Kimball available in store (and also on our online store). There are these great sample packs of her needles available which enable you to try out the size of the needle and then decide which size is the best for you. Alternatively there are packs containing a single size needle, and most of these packs have sixteen needles in them unless otherwise stated. Sharps needles, shown below, are an all purpose needle. We also have Straw needles, Utility Quilting needles, Longs/Basting needles, Longs/Tying needles, Embroidery needles, and Betweens/Quilting needles. There is a needle for many occasions, it's just a matter of deciding which ones are best for you.

New Art Gallery Fabrics

There are some lovely new Art Gallery fabrics that have arrived this week. Gorgeous pale pink with a dark ink silhouette, and pale green with dark turquoise floral shapes. Then there are some lovely little seagulls and some drawn sailing boats on a beautiful blue.


These little urban designs are new in. Rows of houses, cars and bikes travelling in their own lanes, and neat trees all in duck egg blues, khaki, greys and with a touch of black. This is a striking colour range, it could set the scene for an entire quilt top, or you could use either the houses or the cars and bikes as a feature. I just love this colour combination.

Dream Boats

We have some new lovely little sailing boat and fish fabric in the shop. Mottled blues, fresh turquoise, and pale orange make up this little collection of sea faring vessels and straight swimming fish. Perfect for the little sailor you know. Ahoy!
