International Jelly Roll Day & Our Special Offer!

We love to make projects using jelly rolls. Moda, who have pioneered these delicious bundles, have lots of handy hints on their official website. There are useful sections on pre-washing & accuracy

We celebrate Jelly Roll day by offering you a 20% discount on all Jelly Rolls until Midnight on Sunday 18th September. The discount will be available at checkout, just click on the JELLY20 code to apply it on all Jelly roll purchases.


The Sophie and Alexandra Quilt as You Go Tote Bag kits from June Tailor are a practical way to use your jelly roll. Each comes with pre printed wadding so you can 'sew by numbers'. Making these a quick and easy project.

Jelly Roll Books

A number of our stocked books contain inspiration for Jelly Roll projects. From simple strip piecing to more intricate designs. You will not be stuck for ideas.

Scrap Bags

Not strictly jelly rolls but the scrap bags by Ruby Star and Moda contain wide strips of fabric ranges. Each strip is approximately 3" to 4" wide but they do vary. A fun surprise and a great way of helping to use fabric scraps that otherwise would have been thrown away after the commercial cutting of layer cakes.

We also make our own lucky dip scrap bags, using smaller pieces of fabric from various designers, that are left over from kit making or end of rolls. Equally useful for smaller projects or applique.

Halloween Fabrics

It is still September but Autumn is firmly taking hold and so we know just around the corner is Halloween. For those of you who celebrate, or have little ones who do, then this selection of Halloween themed fabrics may be just what you need to make a seasonal table runner or trick or treat bags.

Synonymous with Halloween and the late Autumn months are pumpkins. Look at these cute pumpkin buttons for enhancing your projects or making wall hangings or bunting.
