With the schools on summer vacation, I am sure you are all enjoying the beach and your gardens. Whilst taking in the sun, it is a good opportunity to start planning your next project.
Our stock continues to come in and out like the ebb and flow of a tide. With the wonderfully hot weather we have all been enjoying, summer prints have been the main theme recently.
Pastels and brights, in modern and traditional prints, we continue to cater for all tastes. Those of uou familiar with the Crystals range and how useful they are will be pleased to know that an additional range called crystal Gems are starting to appear on the shelves. New prints have also arrived in the popular 108” width. Reasonably priced, they are a very good buy for backing quilts, (no joins) or anywhere where a wide width is required.

These remain popular, during the Summer we have been marbeling our own fabrics and have used them to make boxes. These were made from a flat sheet of card to the dimensions and style of every students choice. They were mainly for stationary, Jewellery, Playing Cards etc.
Our other course was textiles for the table. We ended up with an array of bread baskets, napkins, table mats etc. which are now being enjoyed in gardens and conservatories.
Our Autumn / Winter (Sept-Dec) series of classes have filled so quickly, so with this in mind we have arranged a further 2 classes. Please see our tuition pages for further details.
