As another lockdown week ticks by for so many of us, we hope that you've been able to keep your sewing mojo in good spirits, but if not then perhaps some of the following new products might just be what you need to get your creativity flowing.
We are still able to accept quilts for longarm edge-to-edge quilting during lockdown. Quilts can be left safely at the front door of our house (if you're within the travel limit of course), or posted to us. We have a large range of patterns on our website for you to choose from, (you can view them here), along with thread choices. And of course we are happy to chat with you over the phone to help with your choices.
Quilt Recipes is the latest book from Jen Kingwell, combining her love of quilting with her love of baking. Years in the making, Jen has dreamt of creating a book that showcases quilts in a new light, where they shine alongside stunning interior design and push the boundaries of how they are perceived. Quilt Recipes combines 12 quilt and cushion projects from Jen with 8 recipes passed down from her mum. For lovers of quilts and baking, Quilt Recipes is a book that nourishes the soul and the tummy.

Did you know that when tracing directly on wool, you are guaranteed to get a perfect, sharp shape if you trace around the outside of a solid template, rather than the inside of a template with a shape cut out of them? These, high quality, large bodied templates are ideal for directly tracing shapes onto Wool, Cotton, Linen or other material. Each template contains markings to plan, mark and evenly space your stitches around each shape.
Tired of tangled threads? These reusable thread guards are a must have notion! Wrap snugly around spools to hold in place and prevent unraveling or place loosely to create a controlled yet unhindered drawing of thread.
Get your Christmas Stitching well underway with these gorgeous patterns from Anni Downs of Hatched and Patched. Featuring fabrics from her latest range "All for Christmas", we've put together kits for each of them.
