Midwinter Colour

Perle Cotton #8 - perfect for hand quilting and sewing embellishment.

The sun came out, weak midwinter rays, but our Workroom is full south facing and above the rooftops and we always get the sunniest outlook.

Aurifil 40 weight - perfect for machine quilting or decorative machine stitching.

A flash of light lit up the colour and texture in The Workroom. A rainbow riot of creative dynamite.

Waxed Hand Quilting Thread - perfect for hand quilting, of course.

Today I had a satisfying tidy up and move around at The Workroom. It's been such an exciting busy term. The Workroom is choc a bloc everyday with full buzzing classes, people popping in for inspiration or a restock. We literally struggle to find a quiet moment to run the hoover around!

We've had loads of lovely new fabric arriving after the empty shelves of ShopHop! We've been so busy that I've not had time to really, well, enjoy all the new fabric!

I used to consider a session of stash arranging amongst life's finest pleasures - these days I get to do it on a massive scale, moving around 200 bolts of fabric. I love playing with colour. Arranging these shelves is never a chore!

I can see so many amazing fabric combinations on these shelves....2015 is going to be a colourful creative year

I can't wit to see what you all make with January alone we have 12 different classes all kicking off, from Simple Sampler Quilting to Beginners Dressmaking, Free Motion Embroidery, Sewing for Babies, Log Cabin Quilting. We have classes for little girls, teens and adults. We want everyone to learn to sew!

New Priory Square Fabric new in

A huge thank you to everyone who has taken a class and shopped with us this year. Wishing you all a lovely Christmas and New Year.
