Stitch away the January Blues

This week has seen so much rain for us in Cornwall that we do wonder if the sun will appear again, but at least our reservoirs are refilling and the wet weather is a good opportunity to get stitching. If you do need to think about getting away to warmer climes then the new range from Janet Clare could be just the ticket, pun intended! Bon Voyage is all about travel and is a refreshing palette of blues greens, creams and red. There are also three new patterns to accompany the range.

Also new in is the latest edition of Quiltmania Magazine, Tilda Lovers Club issue 46, 3 new Kaffe fabrics and a new pattern from Lynette Anderson.

What inspiration will you discover to wile away the winter months? Don't forget the 10% discount on all purchases in store and online runs until Saturday 14th in the shop and Sunday 15th midnight online. The discount applies to all purchases except Gift Vouchers but includes sale stock so there are some great bargains to be found. Most Sale fabrics are already at £10metre so with the extra 10% they are a bargain £9!

******-----------STOP PRESS!!!! EXCITING NEWS----------******
We are super excited to have heard from Gail Pan that she is paying us a visit in the Summer while in the UK for the Festival of Quilts. We are in the process of organising workshop days with her so Watch This Space for further details in the weeks to come.

Happy Stitching and have a wonderful week.
Best wishes
Sally & the girls
