'Violette', by Amy Butler

'Violette' is a collection of French inspired flora and fauna fabrics. The name comes from the region where they harvest violets for soaps and fragrance. There are some beautiful painterly designs contrasted with strong lines all of which would look fabulous fussy cut or simply left as they are.

'Folk Song', by Anna Maria Horner

These gorgeous new fabrics arrived just the other day. You should have heard the 'oohs' and 'aahs' as they came out of the box. They're bright and beautifully bold. Perfect for bags and quilts alike.

Closed Easter Saturday

This Easter our shop will be closed from Good Friday all the way through to Easter Monday. We will not be opening on Easter Saturday. So, if you plan on doing some sewing on your long weekend, as we are, you'll have to stock up before the weekend arrives! These two new fabrics arrived the other day. Cotton & Steel have some great designs, and I thought the hares were very suitable for an Easter message.

The Friday Hand Sewing Class

Mary-Ann, from the Friday hand sewing class, has been making this lovely little 1930's inspired quilt. She's been busily sewing hexagons together, and before she had a chance to sew down the border hexagons, I managed to take a picture. It's a lovely way to bring a collection of fabrics together.

'More Hearty Good Wishes', by Janet Clare

Last month I posted a picture of this cushion that we had made from some new Moda Candy packs (2 1/2" squares) that we had received in the shop. If you like the beautiful sketch like quality and deep blues and creams of Janet Clare's fabric, well you'll be happy to know, we have her newest range, 'More Hearty Good Wishes', by the bolt and available in store.
